  • This market was very cool. Lots of amazing food for cheap, nice restaurants by the river, and great souveniers. You can ride a longboat up the river! Out of all of the markets we went to near Bangkok ...  more »

  • Don't waste time or money unless you love getting ripped off. Instead go with your hotel travel desk for a group option for 1/5 the the price.
  • Price was a bit steep to get in at 1500 baht. I'm sure you can haggle, but this time I didn't. It started off looking dead but when you get to the actual market it is a sight to see. When shopping don't be intimidated to bargain with them. You'll almost always be able to get your item 50% off, but pay what you think is fair. Don't bother fighting over 50 baht as these people do have families to feed. After the actual shopping, our boat driver took us out of the markets and into the village areas as well as a temple where we were able to wander around for about 15 mins on our own. Don't be shy, and smile at the locals! They're very nice and trustworthy people! Also, we hired a driver to take us around the area and wait while we enjoyed the market. You might want to do the same as I hardly saw any taxi in the area
  • people to get the boats from are really stingy and made me not even want to ride the boats. but it has fun games, and yummy coconut icecream 😊
  • The best so far. But not easy to get taxi.
  • Been to a few and this is the best
