You'll need to get up bright and early for this one, but we promise it will be worth it to experience one of Bangkok's lesser-known floating markets! Let the city slip away discover a slightly slower pace in a traditional floating market as you explore these fascinating waterways with one of our local Bangkok hosts - a uniquely Thai experience.

Together, you'll choose a floating market to visit, which will be recommended by your host based on your preferences and the kind of experience you'd like to have. But our recommendation? Khlong Lat Mayom floating market, a local favorite which is known as “a food lover's paradise”, which floats along the narrow waterways of a small canal and will offer you an authentic glimpse into this tradition - of course, with lots of stops to try the delicacies on offer.

Or you could opt to visit a larger market, where you'll be swept up in this enchanting way of trading. Whatever your vibe, let your host know and they’ll take somewhere that suits - just come hungry because there are countless breakfast street eats to try!
