Presentation

A lot less known than its neighbors, Damnoen Saduak and Amphawa, Tha Kha Floating Market is certainly more modest but so much more peaceful. Some people say it is more traditional but it is probably mainly because the number of foreign tourists coming here is (still) very low.
First opened just a few times a year on dates complicated to know because they were calculated according to the lunar calendar, Tha Kha Floating Market is now open every weekend. Don expect to find souvenir shops here, here vendors mainly sell fruit and vegetables and meals cooked on the boats. But you can hire a local to take you to a rowing boat tour. You will discover the market channel and surrounding channels with some wooden houses and even a palm sugar factory. A much more authentic tour than those offered at Damnoen Saduak floating market.
Tha Kha is more relaxing to visit because it is still unspoiled by mass tourism. It is a good alternative for those who want to discover Thai floating markets but do not like the crowd.

Practical information about Tha Kha Floating Market

The floating market is open every Saturday and Sunday from 6 am to 2 pm.
A tuk-tuk will take you around there for 200 THB from Damnoen Saduak (10 km).
There are also songthaews leaving from Samut Songkram or passing on the highway outside Amphawa that go to Tha Kha but they are not that easy to take because everything is written in Thai (20 THB). So I advise you rather to hire a tuk-tuk to take you to the floating market wait for you and bring you back or take you to discover another market.
