To get to Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market, you can take the BTS to Bang Wa Station (the last BTS station of Silom Line) and then a taxi to reach the market. You can also get there by a private car. While not as massive as the more famous Damnoen Saduak or Amphawa Floating Market, Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market is not so touristy. It is truly a place where you can have the authentic experience of a local floating market. While there, you can also take a boat tour and visit the nearby Taling Chan Floating Market or Chang Chui Plane Market

It won't take long walking around Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market to feel your growing appetite. The market has plenty of delicious local food and snacks to munch on, some you can get from vendors on small boats floating along the canal. Some must-trys include Hoy Tod (fried oysters with egg), Pla Pao (salt-crusted grilled fish), Goong Ob Woon Sen (seasoned glass noodles with prawns), and Gai Galae (Southern Thai-style grilled chicken). You can also learn to cook your own Pad Thai too, with a local grandma showing you her tried and tested recipe! 

What's more, eating is not the only thing you can do at Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market. When you're feeling full, you can relax with a long-tail boat ride to see the surrounding nature and local life. Stop by a temple and an orchid farm, or visit a Thai traditional house and perfume house. Add a tranquil moment to your trip with a visit to the lotus pond, or some entertainment with a puppet show at the Artist's House. Whichever way you choose, you're bound to have lots of fun with a local friend with you! 

TakeMeTour's Review

Us locals love coming to Khlong Lat Mayom floating market for the variety of food and hang out spaces it offers. Many types of local food are available here, most of which won't be cooked at home. Don't expect a proper restaurant setting, but a first-come-first-serve way of the locals.  That's why we recommend everyone to arrive early in the morning to beat the crowds. Also, try to bring your own comfort kits like wet wipe or napkins. Taking a boat ride is a must! You can choose between taking the motorboat or paddle boat. Both are good in their own way and definitely worth a try.
