 It is located on 30/1 Moo 15, Bangramad road, Bangramad Subdistrict, Talingchan district in Bangkok, Thailand. It is a floating market located along the Lat Mayom canal which is open only Saturday and Sunday from 8:00-17:00. It is a famous large floating market that has 8 zones for shopping items along both sides of the canal, such as seafood, grilled fish, papaya salad, grilled chicken, fresh vegetables from the garden, as well as traditional Thai desserts and handmade products. There are both savory food and desserts.

Furthermore, there is a wide selection of delicious food as well as souvenirs such as straw hats, woven bags, handmade cloth bags, apparel, and herbal goods at cheap costs. I would list the top three delicious street food at Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market as follows:

1.      Leab Klong Seafood (Seafood Along the Canal)

          It is located in the 6th zone of Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market, and its signature dishes are unique, such as fried river prawns with salt, which are very delicious. Grilled shrimp, grilled/boiled cockles, grilled squid, grilled/boiled scallops, seasoned oysters, and oyster salad are also available with the price that is not too expensive. So those who are seafood lovers, you should not miss it.

2.      Pisamai Pla Phao (Pisamai Grilled Fish)

There are several menus to select from, but the special menu of this restaurant that most visitors order is grilled fish, which includes both grilled Tilapia fish and grilled snakehead fish for approximately 280 Baht. Furthermore, the Seafood Dipping Sauce that you will receive when ordering grilled fish is very delicious, and there are free blanched vegetables available.

3.      Khao Chae Phetchaburi, Pa Chaleo

Khao Chae, or Iced Water Rice, is the restaurant’s trademark dish. It is the old recipes of old elites that are difficult to find nowadays and should not be missed. There are rice polished till smooth, floating candles, and fragrant jasmine blossoms that go well with shrimp paste balls, sweet cabbage, and delicately sweet fish.

However, after sampling the delectable cuisine, shopping, and strolling around Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market, you should not  miss the boat ride to see the Bangkok Noi Canal, pay respect to the Saphan Temple, and visit the Orchid Garden. A nature cruise takes approximately 50 minutes. One boat can accommodate around 8 passengers and costs 20 baht each person. You can charter a boat with a group of friends and go on a vacation together.

These are the top three street foods at Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market in Thailand that you should taste when traveling. However I highly recommend you to purchase travel insurance Thailand, particularly from Rabbit Care since there are many coverage and reasonable premiums. If you taste with the food listed above and suffer the sickness or diarrhea, the insurance company will cover the medical expenses. The third party bodily injuries are also covered under travel insurance but the summation  insured are small or large depending on the plan that you select.

Do enjoy the weekend market and purchase Travel insurance Thailand to make your trip safer!
