Khlong Latmayom Floating market is located approximately 20km from Bangkok, and unlike the more popular and touristy Damnoen Saduak and Amphawa, it has managed to maintain its traditional and Thai charm. You will probably find you are one of the few tourists among locals eating, exploring and shopping.
Although it may not be a floating market in the full sense of the name, due to most stalls being located alongside the river. There are plenty of food sellers on boats gliding by for photo opportunities or fruit and food purchases.
We’ve never seen so much food and colour in one place as we saw at Khlong Latmayom, and the variety is unbelievable. You’ll struggle to get seats as all the stalls are extremely busy and in high demand.
The biggest draw to the visit is a boat tour around the area. You get to see local life by the river and explore the surrounding area for a mere 50 baht.
Included in the boat tour is a trip to an orchid farm.
An excellent trip that can be easily combined with Taling Chan floating market and doesn’t require you to wake up and leave before sunrise!
