Klong Suan 100 Years Market

Klong Suan 100 Year Market (pronounced Klong Suan Roi Pee in Thai) is more than just a fresh food display, a giant bazaar or a touristic floating market – it's a living museum. Located outside Bangkok, about 20 km past Suvarnabhumi Airport, this very large old market is set on one side of the Prawet Burirom Klong. Because of its remote location, the place is

Or Tor Kor Market

Or Tor Kor is so much more than a local market. It was once ranked the 4th best fresh market in the world by a famous travel guide. Products displayed here are selected from the best produce found in the entire country. With such an incredible range of beautiful fruits, extremely fresh vegetables, meats and seafood, Or Tor Kor should be on the 'must-see'

Sampeng Lane Market

Sampeng Lane Market pretty much sums up the whole shopping experience of Chinatown Bangkok and, to some extent, the surrounding Old City. This daytime market is very busy, and the narrow lanes often become chaotic with rows of stalls peddling a wide range of goods. The steady flow of pedestrian traffic, pushcarts, worn-out vespers, and the occasional truck

Ta Tian Market

Ta Tian Market is a fresh marketplace in Bangkok Riverside, just opposite the white walls of Wat Pho. The market is often missed by travellers who often take a break at one of the charming little cafes under the arches of the Sino-Portuguese façades. You can find its small entrance right in the middle of this U-shaped heritage style building. Walking through

Bang Nam Pheung Market is a riverside market, with several boats parked along the banks and stalls on solid ground. It's located in an unusual loop of the Chao Phraya River, nicknamed 'the Green Lung of Bangkok'.

Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market

Khlong Lat Mayom is a traditional floating market around 10 km east of downtown Bangkok. You can get there by taxi from the Wongwian Yai BTS Skytrain Station. Local market culture has deep roots in Thai daily life and eating out is not a special event as it is in western culture. It's fun, cheap and casual, and Thai food has so many variations it can be a

Tha Kha Floating Market

Tha Kha Floating Market is the smaller sibling of the nearby Damneon Saduak market. It attracts a much smaller amount of tourists and, with a canopy of natural surroundings, it's protected from overdevelopment, so its modest size and local atmosphere are likely to remain. The market has a number of elderly Thais in their rowboats selling fruit, vegetables,

Taling Chan Floating Market

Taling Chan Floating Market is a weekend market about 14 km west of central Bangkok. Also called Khlong Lad Mayom Floating Market, it’s far more genuine than most floating markets near the Thai capital. You can enjoy an excellent seafood lunch sitting on the floor with the locals, ride a longtail boat around the nearby klongs (canals), as well as do a bit of

Amphawa Floating Market

Amphawa is one of the most popular floating markets near Bangkok. It’s not as large as Damnoen Saduak but it’s more authentic, with visitors almost exclusively Thai. Located 50 km from Bangkok, this once small village has been around since the mid-17th century. It’s become such a magnet for Bangkokians during weekends that food stalls have grown from the
