Bangkok - Taling Chan Floating Market



On one of our mornings in Bangkok, we took a bus out to the outskirts of the city to visit Taling Chan Floating market.



It reminded me a lot of Xochilmilco in Mexico City. It is definitely much more of a tourist attraction than a working market, but it is primarily patronized by locals.



There are a number of restaurants on a floating platform in the canal, and ladies in their little floating kitchen are pulled up alongside.



You order from your waiter and pay ahead of time. They in turn purchase the main food items from the ladies in the boats and plate it up for you.



We had a whole fish, which was delicious.



While we were there, we also took a boat tour on the canals.



We stopped in at a little temple area that was densely populated with roosters - both real and artificial.



The motors on the canal boats are no joke - these guys aren't messing around!
