Shop for souvenirs, flowers, and fresh produce at Taling Chan Floating Market during the weekends. You'll have the opportunity to buy delicious grilled shellfish and other edible treats from vendors bobbing up and down in small traditional boats that are packed with appetizing ingredients and basic cooking equipment. A number of stalls and permanent restaurants sit on dry land close to the wharfs, where the boat vendors tie up, and a group of musicians plays traditional Thai music for a few hours each day, adding to the ambience. Combine a trip to the market with a boat tour of the local khlongs (canals) to make the most of your visit.

Very so-so experience but didn’t have a bad time. The market is easily accessible from Bangkok’s city centre which makes it convenient. I would only recommend if you have never been to a floating market before.
Small floating market but worth a visit. We ate the breakfast on the bridge and watched the local people feed the river fish. And the old folks were playing the musical instrument in the small open room. That make us enjoyed the local culture and living style. Varieties of local food and easy to get transportation.
