Note

Open: 7am - 4 pm weekends only

Just few kilometres outside Bangkok but still far enough to not yet have been converted into a full scale tourist attraction is the charming Taling Chan Floating Market. It has everything you need to spend a good half day without having to book a tour and it is far more genuine than the big famous markets. Here you can enjoy a great seafood lunch sitting on the floor with the locals, ride a longtail boat around the nearby klongs (canals) for a 100 baht, do a bit of silly shopping and a lot of food tasting. You can even get a foot massage under the trees for only 200 baht! Enjoy it while it still feels 'local' as it already started to change.

Opening Hours: Saturday and Sunday, 8 am to 5 pm

How to get there: Taxi is the easiest way but you can get on the BTS to Wongwian Yai Station then ride a taxi for about 17mn, or ride the bus for an hour following this map from Central World http://goo.gl/maps/Xw1DV

Or by boat - see page 154 in Lonely Planet guide
