Tha Kha Floating Market Tours

Tha Kha Floating Market
The Tha Kha Floating Market offers a peaceful respite from the crowds of Bangkok and the throng of tourists attracted to the larger floating markets closer to the capital. The market takes place each weekend in a tranquil, rural setting amid the canals and fruit plantations of the Samut Songkhram province.

Among the rural scenes and local traditions, visitors to Tha Kha will find locals punting along the waterways in wooden boats filled with fragrant flowers, fresh fruits and vegetables, colorful spices, and dried fish. Despite being only 10 kilometers from the larger and more famous Amphawa Floating Market, this is a wholly relaxing affair, where you can get an insight into rural village life and drift along the sugar-palm-lined waterways with a friendly local guide.

Practical Info

The Tha Kha Floating Market can be easily reached by road by heading north out of Amphawa on Route 325. Boats, tuk tuks, and organized tours can also be arranged from Amphawa. The market is only open on weekend days, and the locals of Tha Kha rise early, with things wrapping up at around midday.
Address: Amphawa District, Samut Songkhram, Thailand

Tha Kha - perhaps Thailand's most authentic Floating Market

Of the many floating markets in Thailand, Tha Kha is perhaps the most 'authentic' version that there is. Vastly different than the neighbouring floating markets at Damnern Saduak and Amphawa, Tha Kha is not usually on the maps of most tourists. It could be considered as the last of its kind and it would be a wise decision to visit before it too welcomes mass tourist numbers. This quaint, laidback floating market is still fully operational. Just as they have been doing for years, the locals buy and sell fruits, meats, fish and more from their floating wooden sampan in a very relaxed, old-world vibe. Nearby is a coconut plantation where the farmer makes palm sugar the traditional, old fashioned way. Another stop on this tour will be at Wat Bang Kung, a century's old temple that has been surrounded by the roots of a massive Banyan Tree.The tour will finish off with a lunch break at an open-air restaurant which is right on the side of the Mae Kong River and enjoys the river breeze.
