Full description

Here, the locals' way of life is still very much preserved. Thaka Floating market is in Tambon Thaka. It is a floating market where the local lifestyle is still well-conserved. The locals do farming and agricultural work for a living and bring their vegetables and fruits such as chilis, onions, coconut sugars, guavas, cononuts, rose apples, and pomelo to exchange and sell at the floating market in their boats. Along the way, make a quick stop to visit a traditional Thai house, where you can see locals making brown coconut sugar. Explore the house and its surrounding area, which is home to many different animals living on the coconut plantation. .  This floating market still remains the villagers’ way of life in nature.
