    Come early in the morning before the crowds arrive & rent a boat. Shop & eat delights sold by the merchants paddling down the congested canals. If you see coconut or coconut ice cream, get it.

    It a must-see near Bangkok area but should be visited early morning. Should try local fruits sold by the merchants on the boat. Must bargain before buying something...

    Meat on a stick is Thainess. What better place to enjoy grilled meats than on the floating markets seen in James Bond's "The Man with the Golden Gun".

    Vendors usually start at 3 or 4 times the intrinsic price so don't hesitate to haggle to ridiculous rock bottoms. Don't forget to bring sunscreen or head wear if you're visiting around noon time.

    Try this mini-rice cakes. They are so delish. Available near the docking area. They sell this for 20baht (as of 10/10/2012). Enjoy Thailand. ❤

    Good cultural experience. Food is slightly more expensive but still okay for the experience. I liked the spicy Pad Thai and the Coconut Ice Cream.

    Bargain as much as you can. Prices drop from 2.000 bahs to 150. Awesome experience. By the end of the walking pier you can get a private paddle boat for 300 bahs an hour!

    The market opens early in the morning at 7am and closes at noon. You can charter a boat for around 150 Baht per person per hour once you enter the area. I recommend hiring a car to drive you there!

    Yes, the floating market has been developed into a "tourist trap" over the past decades. However, some quiet pockets of local life can still be found. Read more about the history here: Read more

    James Bond is chased through the floating markets in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) by a boat-full of martial artists after he escapes their training camp. They're soon left swimming in the klongs

    Hmm... I got to agree w most of them. This place has become a tourist trap. Food are getting expansive. Easily 50 Baht for a bowl of boat noodles. Be sure to bargain. Good experience tho.

    Locals selling goods while they are paddling their boat, you can buy food as you cruise along the river with a longtail boat or a paddle boat. Expensive souvenirs. Tourist trap.

    The boats are a rip off at the boat stop before the market. Insist that your driver take you to the main market and get a boat from there, cheaper and better.

    Enjoy a long tailed speed boat along the canal, and see the daily morning congregation of produce-laden boats as farmers and smallholders trade their goods.

    Just over 80 kilometres south west of bangkok, this is one of thailand's most popular tourist destinations. From early morning until noon.

    Don't forget to bargain crazily here. Recommendation is bargain from 1/4 or even lower.
  • Nathalia N.
    The boat costs 150baht per person. Be careful cuz the drivers and tourism agencies take tourists there and try to charge 3000baht for the boat. Don’t accept! Go inside the market to a fair tour

    Don't feel bad to say no. It's more enjoyable to buy food off the boats and watch the ladies prepare them expertly.

    700 Baht'a basladiginiz pazarligi 100-150 Baht'la sonuçlandirabilirsiniz. 150 Bath ta Floating Market'i botla gezebilirsiniz.

    Is a good experience but not what I expected. I went during weekday, therefore not so crowded with food. ( I think)

    Prices are too steep. You can't haggle much coz the vendors will push your boat away

    Nothing authentic. Used to be a local market, now a tourist attraction which makes it an ordinary place. Far from the city so a lot of time is wasted. Motor boats are too loud, pollute air.
