Geography of Khlong Chak Phra is long and thin, giving it a curve-like shape and the easternmost of the district, with a total area of 1.251 km2 (0.483 mi2). Most of the area consisting of lowlands along the waterways, therefore often flooding regularly.

Arrived too late to get to see the market alive (the woman from the ticket booth warned us before hand). Also, we could only take a private boat, a little pricey but we split it with a couple that came at the same time. It was still a nice experience. We got to see monitor lizards, river snakes, and a dog swimming with a bottle in it's mouth!! The driver was really accommodating, stopping or slowing down when we saw something interesting. I really hope the driver was able to explain what we were seeing, though.

Great way to experience a floating market without making a trip outside Bangkok especially for it. I've also spotted plenty of locals here... especially at the shops selling plants. These are the biggest draw for me. It's super simple to get from the center of the city too. Just take bus no. 79 from below BTS Siam, just outside Siam Paragon mall. The bus route takes you through some very important monuments so it's worth it!

Smaller floating market but still picturesque, great seafood and other options cooking on the BBQ boat. Also private canal tours and long boat tours. We split a private boat with two other couples making it $6us per person for an hour winding through the canals past Wats, houses, another lovely floating market, monitor lizards, lovely birds, and a cool breeze. Highlight of the day. Followed that up with a thirty minute massage under the mangroves at the floating market pier - $5 . . . Sigh. You would have to be pretty cranky not to enjoy an afternoon here. Highly recommended.

Really nice market. About 15 minutes from Khao San road. Not a big floating market but all of them seemed too far for us. Not many tourists more locals. Good food and souvenirs. Locals playing traditional music. Whole place full f a lot of charm. Definitely worth a visit.

First time here and I like it. It's a bit small but we got the feel of it. A 1 hour boat ride for only 69baht. Try to get there early, it can be quite crowded for the boat ride. You can get all kind of Thai street food over there. From savory to all kind of sweet. I never been to other floating market but I feel very comfortable to walk in this 1.
