This floating market was not big, but you got a flavor of a traditional floating market. We got to sample many of the fruit for sale. We took a boat ride through the canals around the market. The boat ride was peaceful, but the sun was very hot (recommend hat).

There are many “floating markets” outside of Bangkok, but if you want authentic, then this is the one. The other markets sell lots of “junk,” but here it is all local goods. The food is some of the best that we had on our trip. If you are looking for “authentic” and want to capture those memories easily on a camera or phone, then this is the place. We came here on a Saturday am and arrived close 9:00 am. It took close to two hours by car due to the traffic leaving Bangkok. Plan accordingly.

This is a morning market. Shops open from 6am but the best time to visit is from 9am onward when the market is full of merchants. The market was not large. There were quite a variety of food to try.

This is a smaller floating market than the more central ones in Bangkok, which means there is less to see, but more freedom and comfort. I had an amazing tom yum noodle soup from a lady on a boat, and coconut ice cream served in a coconut shell. There are plenty of tables, including some really cool boat-shaped ones.

ここは休日に行くべし。道は老舗の観光ガイドをやっているところでも知らないこともある。規模は小さくこじんまりしているし、旅行客がたくさんいるわけではない。日本人はたいていいないらしく私が行った時にも出会わなかった。カラオケの音楽が流れていて、空気はきれいで、いろいろなものが売られている。
新鮮で安いので 私たちのガイドさんもいろいろと買いこんでいた。

I prefer this small relaxing market to that of famous Damnoen Saduak.

すぐ先はジャングル という感じもいい。

For those who are first time visiting Thailand and wanted to experience floating market, you have various floating market to choose from. You can choose to go to the most famous and crowded ones or you can choose a quiet one like this. If you came across Tha Kha Floating market when doing your research and still wondering whether to go or not (it's not that famous, it's smaller, but it's nice), then perhaps these points will help you out. (I booked a tour on the Takemetour website and went there on the 6th of May 2018)

Reasons to go :
-It's authentic, original, most of the locals here still sells and buys every day needs to fulfill their necessities
-Not so much of a tourist, there is, but not as much (most of the people who come here are the locals themselves, so it's not crowded and it's more peaceful)
-If you like a quiet place, a peaceful place, this is the right place for you. The canal boat ride will give you peace as it's very quiet and you'll get to see the normal daily lives of local people
-The prices of the foods, fruits, or any local goodies are quite cheap if compare to other floating market
-It's not a tourist trap (yet) (hopefully it'll stay like this for a long time or better, forever!).

p/s : If you fancy going to famous places and only wanted to fill your social media's apps with it then this is not the place for you (people come here for local experience, they wanted to know how is the daily lives of the locals)

very small. Peaceful and quiet. Felt authentic, filled with mostly locals and just a few tourists. Took a lovely boat ride around the canals. Old women on boats make delicious Thai food, and everything is fresh and local. Try the dumplings! Of the four floating markets we visited in the area, this was our favorite.

Most people will go to Damnoen Saduak floating market as it is one of the biggest and probably the most crowded as well. If you just want to experience what it is like without the chaos of a big market in case you lose your kids, then smaller markets like this is much more manageable. I don't know how you can get here. To cut the long story short, the driver of the vehicle we hired drove us here. Park your car right at the entrance to the stalls. Very convenient.

This floating market is not touristy at all. It is smaller, quieter, and more authentic i feel. The boats were full of produce and some of the vendors were actually cooking on the boats. Local people would buy food from them and then sit down alongside the canal and eat. No one tries to sell you anything so there is no pressure. We really liked this market. I would recommend it. From here you can take a boat ride through the canals to the larger Damnoen Saduak floating market. The ride along the canal is most interesting and quite fun! You get to see how people live along the canals. You will see the people washing clothes in the canal, bathing in the canal, monitor lizards on the side of the canal, etc. a real view of rural life!

Chartered a van to maeklong railway market and also visited Tha Kha Floating Market (30mins away) instead of Amphawa as it is not open yet at noon. This turns out to be a great experience. Tha Kha Floating market is super local and we only saw another small group of tourist there. The rowing boat tour is 200baht per boat (up to 5 pax) and it takes about 45mins. Food is cheap there, mainly 20baht per portion. Mainly locals visiting this floating market as it is located deep inside the coconut plantation. Worth a visit if you have own transport.
