  • Booked a joined tour. Upon arrival, it was chaos. Many busses and vans loaded with tourist. A long tail motor boat zoomed around a short course, nonstop. Then we were encouraged to get on a paddle boa...  more »

  • Everything comes from the North of Thailand and is most expensive for tourists. The framework top rest and if you can get there by boat it is very pleasant. On the other hand fruits and dishes prepared on the boats are to be tested. We quickly made the rounds in 45 minutes.

  • 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
