Transfer to a longtail speedboat for a ride through marshes lined with traditional houses on stilts. Listen to your guide’s commentary about the traditions and history of the region along the way. Upon arrival at the market, you can walk around on the banks to observe the action, or get a closer look by hiring a local boat (additional expense) to take you through the throngs of vendor canoes. See narrow boats that are piled with fresh produce, household goods, and tourist souvenirs. Your tour ends with return transport to Bangkok.

We enjoyed the experience and are glad we did it. However, everything is much more expensive and they are very pushy in selling you stuff so it can be overwhelming. Best to go with the attitude of enjoying the experience than to shop. The tour guy was nice until he tried to

We did this tour with Gift our guide. Private pick up and journey to the markets. A fast speed boat into the markets which was brilliant fun and like something out of James Bond! Then we paid extra to get a row boat round the markets. Really good experience and glad we did it!

Left at 7:30am for a 70 mile trip one way bus trip. This bus took us to an area full of other busses and dropped us off at a dock full of large engined canoes. These long boats flew through some mangroves and canals that were full of trash. Floating Market had some yummy

It is good with children for different experiences, but not very an entertainment for adults. basically, it's selling holiday stuff. Kids liked the boat trip more than the market itself. Anyway, you still can go there.

Food on the boat Was good.
The tour guide was more concerned about what wanted us to see and do than what we actually wanted to see and do.
