A hundred-odd years ago, the entire Thai central basin was a network of canals. There were virtually no roads, and all commerce and travel was via the canal network. So-called "floating markets" were established where farmers and merchants could bring their goods for sale. Today, sadly there are now fewer canals and even fewer floating markets, although some crass commercial varieties have been built in tourist centers, such as Pattaya (but don't waste your time visiting them),

Khlong Suan Market is on the banks, and sometimes over the canals,of Prawetburirom Canal (canal = khlong in Thai)on the border of Chachoengsao and Samut Prakan provinces.

It dates back to the time of King Rama V, King Chulalongkorn, (1868-1910) and is still in use by the local community, much as it was more than 100 years ago.

There is little here that western visitors would want to buy, but that should not stop your visit to see the quaint teakwood shops and houses, sometimes perched precariously on the banks of the canal. Having said that, I spotted a shop selling stone mortar and pestles, and as I had lost the pestle of my set at home in Rayong, I talked the owner into selling me just the pestle. I also bought a bottle of locally produced honey.

Although you might not want to buy anything, there are several stalls selling Thai "street food", with each stall usually selling one item, such as pork on rice or a variety of noodles in soup with beef, pork, chicken or fish. If you have never tried Thai street food, now is as good a time as any. You will be pleasantly surprised, not only at how delicious it is, but how cheap it is. Baht 35 for a bowl of noodles in a wonderfully flavoured broth and duck meat. Yum!

We stopped by at the market for lunch and a walk on the back from Chonburi. It is an ordinary market for consumer products as well as food. There were very few souvenir shops but a good variety of food stalls. You can choose to sit at any table and order dishes from different stalls. There were quite crowd around lunch time on the Sunday we visited.

Klong Suan 100 Year Market

The older traditional markets in Thailand. Like a floating markets and canal side markets. However,we have experience a living museum which will satisfy any culture junkies. During the weekend, it is still popular with local who come here to buy products that they need for their every-day lives. You will find shops selling kitchen utensils, fishing accessories, hardware store, clothes, traditional toys for children and a lot more. What I liked are the coffee shops where you can sit and drink traditional coffee whether its is hot or cold.Enjoy with duck noodle.

Worth a visit

Not really a floating market more a market alongside a river.

But a bit off the tourist trail and hence a bit cheaper.

Plenty of stalls selling more or less anything.

Get a table next to the river, Enjoy some good Thai street food and whilst you are eating the kids can be feeding the hundreds of big fish
