Tha Kha Floating Market
Thaka Floating Market is in Tambon Thaka. It is a floating market where the local lifestyle is still well-conserved. The locals do farming and agricultural work for a living and bring their vegetables and fruits such as chilis, onions, coconut sugars, guavas, cononuts, rose apples, and pomelo to exchange and sell at the floating market in their boats.

1 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Wat Bang Kung
Wat Bang Kung is located in the same area as the Bang Kung Camp, on the opposite side and separated by a road. Within the temple, there is an old ordination hall which houses a large sculptured Buddha image commonly called by villagers as Luangpho Bot Noi. Mural paintings from the late Ayutthaya period depict Lord Buddha while he was sitting in the niche and preaching, flanked by the disciples in paying respect to him.

This was a very enjoyable experience...

This was a very enjoyable experience to visit a real floating market where the local population actually comes to purchase prepared food and produce. There were just a few other tourists. We were picked up promptly at our hotel by the guide who also drove the car for our 1.5 hour trip. The first stop was at a coconut plantation where we saw the coconut candy being made, it is very tasty much like maple syrup candy. Then a short drive to Th Ka village to take our river boat paddled by a local woman among the floating market boats. The boat journey goes out into canals along plantation fields as well as residential areas. It is very quiet and serene. The food in the market place is very nicely prepared. On the way back to Bangkok there was another short stop at a very popular temple that is inside a massive tree. We also stopped at a coffee cafe near some sea salt evaporation ponds which were quite interesting. All in all we had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of seeing a real floating market and getting outside the busy Bangkok area for the morning.

Un dépaysement total !

J’avais une guide formidable : Sara, elle a énormément de connaissances historiques mais aussi beaucoup d’humour d’un coup cela rend la visite très attrayante et dynamique.

Ayant quelques difficultés à me déplacer Sara s’est adaptée à moi, et j’ai trouvé cela très appréciable.

J’ai été enchantée par cette excursion, je l’a recommande.
Floating Markets/Coconut Farm

Very attentive guide. I think her name was Beer. She went out of her way to take care of a sick traveler on the tour & I was so impressed of the professionalism she displayed. The coconut farm was an enjoyable stop, the longboat ride to the floating markets was wonderful, and the floating markets is a must do if you're in Bangkok. I would not hesitate to tour with this company in the future. The only criticism I would give is that the van used for transport needs an emissions inspection because I smelt fumes in the van the entire transport.

This was the perfect experience. It had everything that we wanted and more. Ho is an excellent guide very knowledgeable, friendly, and informative. A local that speaks English very, very well was able to tell us about so much history, answer all of our questions, and translate for us when speaking with other locals.

The coconut farm was a real unique look into making sugar and the animals that live with the family were a completely unexpected delight. Tha Ka is picturesque and a real insight to local markets. The people are friendly and the food is delectable! The riverboat ride was fantastic! It is so serene traveling along the river past local fields and a few homes. The temple was completely different from all the ornate ones in the city, truly unique. A lot of history there and a lot of locals coming to make offerings.

If you want to go where the locals go, this is a must do!
