  • The market is ok and though in open air, there is shadow and cooling by vapour fans. You can also make a boat trip on the canal ... but there is really nothing of any intrest to see. BORING and no value for your money (40 baht pp) + tip (free)
  • Kwan-Riam: Are the name of two lovers. (Kwan) loved (Riam), but Riam's father killed her by a sword and Kwan suicided after her. They died but their love story lived and continued to be narrated at this lovely floating market. It is really a very nice place for a day out, nice food, no entry fees and it has very clean and nice air-con washrooms. Highly Recommended :-)
  • Nice food on the river side. Beautifull temple. Need to see
  • Very calm and peaceful. Quite a drive out of Bangkok centre but worth it. The market is not very floating though as all of the barges are stationary. Mostly visited by Thais, but still a lot offered for tourists.
  • Out of the way small weekend floating market off the tourist track. Nice atmosphere. Closed by 6pm.
