Tha Kha Floating Market

Tha Kha Floating Market in Samut Songkhram, takes place on the 2nd, 7th, 12th days of both the waxing and waning moon of the lunar calendar, and also operates on every Saturday and Sunday from 6.00 a.m. to noon. This is a rendezvous of vendor boats that carry local food, vegetable, and fruit for selling.

Boat rental services are on offer for travelling to the villages and fruit orchards around Tha Kha Floating Market. Visitors wishing to go the Tha Kha Floating Market can go by car, taking the Highway No. 325 (Samut Songkhram - Bang Pae), take a right turn at Km. 32 and proceed for another 5 Kilometres You can also take the local buses servicing the Mae Klong Damnoen Saduak Route and the Tha Kha - Don Sam Route from the market in town in front of the Thai Military Bank.

Tha Kha Floating Market probably appears more authentic because it is visited by fewer tourists than its famous neighbour ( up to 5,000 foreign tourists visit Damnoen Saduak a day ). As a result it is less built up, has a more natural surrounding and avoids some of the more commercial aspects of Damnoen Saduak ( souvenir shops, etc.).

Directions Tha Kha Floating Market is located 10 kilometres beyond the more famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. The best time to visit is around 07:00 in the morning.
