Tha Kha Floating Market

Market in Amphawa

This, the most real-feeling floating market, is also the most difficult to reach. A handful of vendors coalesce along an open rural klorng (canal, also spelt khlong) lined with coconut palms and old wooden houses. Boat rides (20B per person, 45 minutes) can be arranged along the canal, and there are lots of tasty snacks and fruits for sale. Contact Amphawa's tourist office to see when the next market is.

To get here, take one of the morning sŏrng·tăa·ou (passenger pick-up trucks, 20B, 45 minutes) from Samut Songkhram’s market area.
