Taling Chan Floating Market @ Bangkok, Thailand

已有 432 次閱讀2015-1-13 12:52 |個人分類:Thailand Bangkok|系統分類:Travel @ Thailand

We would like to go by ourselves to a floating market near Bangkok. Since it is needed to take public transport, it is not too easy for a portion of travellers. Normally, travelling and river cruise in Taling Chan district include Taling Chan itself and two other smaller floating markets, namely Klong Lad Mayom Floating Market and Wat Saphan Floating Market.

From a point near the National Theatre and Grand Palace (in pale blue areas) in B, just cross the Chao Praya River (indicated in the above map) / the bridge (the yellow strip above the river) to the Thonburi side of Bangkok (to the opposite side of the river in A). Take bus numbers 79 or 83 at bus stop shown on the left of the above map. Fyi, the above map is not drawn to scale.

Maybe, you should check with the Tourist Information Centre nearby and see whether these bus routes are also available in area near the National Theatre in pale blue area or your area. Map and advice are provided.
Opening Hours: 09:00 - 17:00 (weekends only)

In an adventurous travel, we of course would take public bus. There is no need to worry about communication, a staff selling ticket on the bus can speak and understand basic English. She is nice and very helpful. It is suggested to inform the ticket conductor where you would like to go to. The fare should be about 14 Bahts. It takes about thirty minutes, as far as I remember, to travel to Taling Chan Floating Market. FYI, Taling Chan is not the last stop of the routes.

We take off at the Taling Chan Market. Of course, this is informed by the ticket conductor on the bus.

Foods (snack, fruit, juice, hot stuffs, deep-fried stuffs, etc) are on sale on both sides. It is now early in the morning, there are still not too many visitors and locals.

This is Tourist Information counter. We buy tickets for the boat trip from Taling Chan Floating Market to another two floating markets. The whole trip takes about two hours and forty five minutes (or 165 minutes). The ticket price per head is 100 Baht only.

Fresh fruits are displayed on the boat.

They also sell flowers, deep-fried stuffs and others.

If there is no raining, it is ok. If there is raining, I do not know how they manage the foods and fire.

A motorized boat would be in service and departed every fifteen minutes.

In the journey, we meet many other boats. We would say 'Hi' in the very beginning.

We pass by the residential area along the river.

This is Klong Lad Mayom Floating Market. Besides this and Taling Chan, we also visit Wat Saphan Floating Market (Wat Saphan is a relatively small market, but there is numerous number of food stalls. Of course, they sell cooked and fresh local authentic Thai foods and fruits.).
