Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market – the closest to Bangkok floating market
Is the closest to Bangkok Floating Market, which is reachable by taxi within 30 minutes.
The main Attraction of this market is not traditional style boat-vendors, but the canal tour among surroundings. You will expect to see simple poor people with children catching fish in dirty canal water, but the surroundings are a way far from it. You will see the houses of Bangkok _ _ _ _ dealers which are so posh, that one flower pot costs more than any average person makes per year. It is definitely worth visiting – it is not one single house – is a huge community with houses which look a way better than any others in Bangkok. Why here? It is easy to grow some plants and it is easy to travel by boat. The community is older than Bangkok itself – it is some king of Asian aristocracy which exist here for centuries.
Things to experience:
1.Local lifestyle with extremely originally posh neighborhood
2.Community existing without ability to reach by land transport
3.Traditional floating market
