#theoldpicturestory Khlong Pho Hak Floating Market Damnoen Saduak District Ratchaburi, 1975
Khlong Pho Hak Floating Market located at the entrance to Khlong Pho Hak, Damnoen Saduak District, Ratchaburi. This is an old floating market that is more than 150 years old. It is considered one of the first floating markets in Ratchaburi. This floating market has many names like the Lak Ha Floating Market, Pak Khlong Bua Ngam Floating Market, and the entrance of Wat Prasat Sit Floating Market.
This floating market was very popular in the past because it was the centre of trade of merchants from many areas both in Damnoen Saduak District and Ban Phaeo District, Samut Sakhon province, but when people’s lives changed to land travel, the boat trade and the name of the Khlong Pho Floating Market gradually faded away over time.
However, Khlong Pho Hak Floating Market has been restored by the villagers and local authorities making it come back to life again under the name “Lak Ha Floating Market”, where we will still see traditional houses and shops. If anyone wants to experience the retro atmosphere, find delicious things to eat, or sit, chill, and sip coffee along the canal, do not forget to visit the Lak Ha Floating Market. The Market is open daily from 09:00 hrs. to 15:00 hrs.
