The floating market has been revives and organized by the district Office of Taling
Chan, in cooperation with vendors in the area. On sale are food items, offered on
rafts, and in paddle boats. Combined with the genuine atmosphere of the riverside
plantation that remain intact, more and more visitors are drawn to the market, in
operation on weekends, from early morning to later afternoon.
Starting from 1987,Mr. Prachum Charoenlap, Talingchan district director,
has initiated the project aiming to create a marketplace for agricultural products which were abundant in
the surrounding area. Then the market was transformed into a floating market, beginning
from the construction of 5 bamboo rafts to sell foods and noodles in 1999, and being
gradually developed to the present day of 11 iron floats. Boat excursions to orchid
farms, flower nurseries, or snake farms in Phasi Charoen canal also are available
for the tourists.
