Taling Chan (Thai: ตลิ่งชัน) is one of the 50 districts (Khet) of Bangkok, Thailand. Its neighbor, clockwise from north, are Amphoe Bang Kruai of Nonthaburi Province, Bang Phlat, Bangkok Noi, Bangkok Yai, Phasi Charoen, Bang Khae, and Thawi Watthana districts of Bangkok.

History

Taling Chan is an old district back when there was Thon Buri province. Now Thon Buri is merged into Bangkok. In 1998, part of the district was split into a new Thawi Watthana district. Historically, much of the area was utilized as orchards, many of those remain there today.

Places

Taling Chan Floating Market is located on the canal Khlong Chak Phra (คลองชักพระ) in front of the district office. It is opened only on weekends from about 8:30 to 16:00. Orchard produce such as fruits, and vegetables, as well as fish are sold from boats. There is a live traditional Thai music performance from 11:00 to 14:00. The idea for the floating market here was initiated by Chamlong Srimuang in 1987 to honor King Bhumibol's 60th birthday. This is a new attraction since floating markets, an old way of life of the Thai people, had vanished entirely from Bangkok for quite a long time.
