Presentation

The klong Lat Mayom Floating Market is probably one of the 3 most interesting floating markets on the immediate outskirts of Bangkok. This is it little part of canal on which a few boats full of fruit and vegetables are parked that makes it a "floating market" . I must confess that the ''floating part'' of the market is quite short but Klong Lat Mayom Floating Market is also interesting for its on land part in which you will easily find something to eat among the numerous stalls before taking place cross-legged around one of its small tables and enjoy your meal. It is also a local market where you can buy fresh vegetables, fruits, fish, shrimps ..., or clothes and souvenirs, because even if most visitors at this market that is held each weekend are Thai, it's still a tourist place ...

There are boat tours on the klongs, the small canals that pass through Bangkok, leaving from each end of the market. They last 1h30 and cost 99 THB per person. I recommend you to make one, it shows a surprising facet of Bangkok and combines a floating market visit and a tour on the famous Bangkok klongs . Moreover, on weekends, when klong Lat Mayom market is open, the tours on the channels offered from the various piers of Bangkok often include a stop here for lunch.
I also advise you to combine the visit of this market with Taling Chan Floating Market 9 km away, starting rather with Taling Chan market. There is a red songthaew with a white sign (pickup that is used as a local bus) that connects the two markets for less than 10 THB per person.

Practical information about Klong Lat Mayom Floating Market

The klong Lat Mayom Floating Market is only open on weekends and some public holidays from 8am to 5pm.
A rowing boat ride on the small part of the canal costs 20 THB per person.
The 90-minute tours on the klongs with a longtail boat (motorboats) cost 99 THB per person. You can also privatize a boat for around 1200 THB (it depends on what you want to do, the number of people and your negotiating skills).
You can come here by taxi, of course, or start by visiting the Taling Chan Floating Market taht can be easily reached by bus number 79 from Bangkok city center (there is a stop near Sanam Luang for instance) and then take the red songthaew with a white sign (pickup that serves as a local bus) that connects the two markets for less than 10 THB per person. Otherwise, it seems that the bus 146 goes near Klong Lat Mayom floating market but I did not test it. For a larger budget, you can also hire a local guide for the day. He will book a boat for you to visit the klong with a stop at this market and other interesting stops.
