We set off to this market on a day that was raining so hard I wondered whether it was worth going. But having arrived here, the rain stopped and the sun came out. What it had done though was keep all the people away so it was much easier to get round the market, as very few people had come that day.

I would not really call this a floating market but more a market situated on a canal, but the setting made for a great day out, and the market was first class.

Situated on the banks of Prawet burirom Canal, Khlong Suan Market lies in two provinces: Tambon Thepparat, Amphoe Ban Pho, Chachoengsao Province and Tambon Khlong Suan, Amphoe Bang Bo, Samut Prakan Province.

This traditional market dates back to the reign of King Rama V. The market contains many different shops, which are getting rare these days, since they are increasingly being replaced by modern convenience stores and shopping malls.

After more than 100 years old, it still retains the quaint charm of the old days. Visitors will be pleased with the traditional market atmosphere while enjoying a great variety of tasty food.
