Tha Kha Floating Market, Bangkok Overview

The perfect way to experience the old culture of Thai living is through the Kha Floating Market. A market on the waters surrounded by old traditional houses and green fields on either side, this tends to become a tiny community of its own. Selling fresh vegetables on rowboats, the Kha Floating Village is refreshing and enchanting to visiting tourists!

Thailand, in particular, Bangkok, is known for its floating markets. Floating Market province, Samut Songkhram, is however crowded, expensive and ill-maintained now. By contrast, Tha Kha Floating Market offers its visitors a cheaper, tourist-friendly and cleaner option! It is local, peaceful and smaller, therefore perfect for those wishing to experience the authentic Thai nativity. The Floating Market promises views of traditional Thai lifestyle, houses, green fields and farms. Despite its location in the outskirts, the advantages of visiting this location outshine the logistical problems of travelling by far!
