  • 水上市集對於個人而言,已算是泰國印象之一,每每看到旅遊部落客或電視節目的介紹就想一探究竟,我們當天在中午左右抵達這裡,映入眼簾的一如腦袋想像,當上電動木船,遊走於兩側盡是店家的河道中,木船駕駛會放慢速度讓大家有機會靠近想購物的商家,也可以買點當地水果、吃碗米粉湯(超好吃),木船搭完也可以步行於兩側陸地上,好好感受這特有的水上市集氣氛,真的非常具特色的景點,推薦大家務必前來。  more »
  • This market is definitely set up for tourists , so dont go expecting to see a real floating market in action. No local shopping here ! But it was fun to sit in a boat and float down the canals, lookin...  more »
  • Interesting place to meet. It seems that is the oldest market. I thought it would have only a floating market, but has several. Take a rowboat or with a noisy engine and will know each other. All sellers you addressing, even bother, but it's part. If you want to eat something, opt for something that does not have error like fruits. By the way the mango and the coconut of Thailand there is nothing equal.

  • Bit of a rip off. Rivers are quite dirty and they charged us 2000 baht each, not including the cab ride. Food is pretty good but it's all the same stuff, but this time you're stuck on a boat. Nice driver but the elephant riding they offer at the end was also a real turn off (look up why you should not ride Elephants of you're not aware). Worth passing on if you don't have time, or money to kill.
  • Do not go there, its a massive rip off, if u still insist on ignoring the comment below as i have done i urge you go directly to the main market and get the paddle boat. U can get it down to 250bht instead of the tourist trap 2000bht. I managed to get a shortened version of the expensive package for the regular price. Under no circumstance get the 4000 bht package. Better option go to amphawa floating market at around 3 pm. Much cheaper and cleaner.
  • The short long-tail boat ride to the market was somewhat enjoyable. The market itself was quite a disappointment. Extremely touristy. Can't see locals shopping there. Color was of trashy tourist goods rather than of natural produce. Would not recommend visiting here. I believe there are other more authentic floating markets elsewhere.
  • Colurful and vibrant place. Souvenir shopping here should be fine if you know how to haggle. 600 baht product turns to 250 baht if you know what youre doing. I'd say this place is worth going to just for the experience.
  • It is a unique experience to visit this place and spend two hours max. However it is located more than an hour driving if no traffic. It is relatively expensive ture. The boat costs us 6000 bht to take a boat for 2 hrs. The goods there can be founded elsewhere with half price or less
