Tha Kha also known as Thaka Floating Market is a hidden gem, and only 60 kilometers away from Bangkok. This Floating Market will give you a different perspective than other markets closer to Bangkok as it is less touristy and gives you a more genuine and charming view of a traditional Thai floating market.

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.
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!
