Tha Kha Floating Market

Tha Kha is particularly popular among local people and offers an authentically Thai market experience. The surroundings are much more rural than other markets with plants and trees providing some natural shade. The market is only open six days a month in accordance with the lunar calendar so it is worth asking around locally and planning your visit in advance.Tha Kha Floating Market Amphawa, Samut Songkhram. Located at Tambon Tha Kha Water is a market that is still natural.

The Tha Kha Floating Market is near the Amphawa and Damnoen Saduak floating markets, but this market is more down-to-home, and only occurs six times per month, depending on the phases of the moon. The market has existed for more than 60 years, and is still part of the lives of the local residents.

Samut Songkhram is only an hour drive from Bangkok and minibuses leave regularly so most people prefer to stay in the capital.


Shop for souvenirs and observe the local people doing their own shopping by way of boat, alms giving to monks by river in the early moring.

We can walk along the tracks (unless, of course, a train comes through). You will know when a train is about to arrive when the vendors scramble to remove quickly their awnings and shift their produce to a safe distance but too close to the railways. Don’t close your eyes.

Getting there

A direct taxi from Bangkok should cost in the region of 500 Baht, although air conditioned minibuses leave regularly and cost a fraction of the price. Another minibus connects SamutSongkhran Bus Station with the floating market.
