Full description
After pick-up from your hotel at 8:00 AM, you will be driven to Khlong Lat Mayom floating market. This small market is a great place to stroll around and sample delicious Thai street food dishes. Although not many vendors sell things from their boats, the fantastic market on land right next to the water makes up for it. This charming market will give you a taste of local life, as nearly no tourists come here.

You will leave Khlong Lat Mayom at about 11.00 AM to visit Or Tor Kor market, known for its premium fresh fruit, vegetables and food. The Or Tor Kor market is packed with perfect produce, and is full of exotic fruits and vegetables that are unique to Thailand, as well as imported specialties from around Asia. Customers also shop here for seafood, sweets and cooked foods. The market offers a wide selection of prepared curry pastes and spices for you to take back home, and there is a food court filled with Thai specialties.

The last stop will be at Chatuchak Weekend Market. With more than 15,000 retailers in 27 sections, this market is the largest weekend market in the world. Enjoy the fun of bargaining as you browse the incredible variety of merchandise on offer, from the latest fashion items and vintage decor, to Thai crafts and wooden tables. Although the market officially opens at 7:00 AM, shoppers usually go in the afternoon when the weather is cooler. After finishing your shopping, you will be driven back to your hotel at around 4:00 PM.

My guide “Lin” was excellent, her knowledge, and generosity highly appreciated. The lat mayom market was lovely and had kept the local feeling, as there was not many tourists around this early in the morning. Lin knows the Chatuchak market like her back pocket, and it was very helpful to have her help in navigating through all the alleys.

After having visited Amphawa floating market the day before, I found Lak Mayom floating market more intimate and truly authentic. Perhaps because it was less crowded that Sunday (March 2nd). The tour on long tail is relaxing and you can see true thaï life. A stop at an orchid farm takes flower lovers to heaven! Duï our guide was friendly and informative in many ways. Thank you Duï

The tour was finished after 6 hours. In addition to the tourist boats, there were only about 10 market boats on the floating market. Goes on a longtail boat through the Klongs (not very worth seeing) and visits to a monastery and an orchid farm. Then to the foodmarket Or Tor Kor, clean and worth seeing. Then to Chatuchak market. There is everything your heart desires, lots of trinkets and clothes. The street food market is very clean and the food was delicious.
