Interesting Experience
Jan 2020
We booked through Viator using Tour East Thailand. Tour was OK but the guide was not very helpful. Basically left us to wander the Market on our own. Found a coffee shop and had a coffee while watching the vendors on the canal. Also tried some mango and stcky rice - very good, but if you are concerned with hygene, they wash the fruit and their hands in the river.

Watch out but worth it
Mar 2020 • Couples
Okay. This is totally for tourists. Our driver that was taking us from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi took us there. They get a cut from the ticket sale. But it did save us if we had signed up for it. Everyone seems to get a cut when tourists buy something. Tuk tuk drivers also get fuel vouchers. Interesting system but it helps pay the bills. You might be able to bargain but also think about their wages and we are traveling and most of the vendors and transportation folks there cannot afford such a luxury. We had a great boat ride through all the vendors. Items are way pricier than street markets. Bargain. Our driver had lots of relatives along the way. Hmmm?? It was still worth it. You travel in a Longtail boat and see lots of housing, monitors and great flora and fauna. We did buy souvenirs and saw them chestier later. Same exact items. Be aware. Their overhead might be higher. I had a delicious coconut ice cream served in a coconut. Yum. Refreshing!!

Lots to see, including snakes.

A fun longboat ride through a very crowded floating market. The powerboats bully their way through the traffic as you visit vendors along the water and also get visited by boats selling food and wares also. Lots of color and fun.

Floating market Bangkok
Feb 2020 • Solo
I went to see the Floating market outside Bangkok City. The first stop to see some coconuts and how they make products from coconuts. It was interesting. Went on small speed boat to see the market. They sell products on the boats such as Thai fruit and veg. Lots of things to buy in market like clothes jewelluary and gifts. On the way back sawsome elephants and fes them bananas.

Glad to hear that you had a fun day with a lot of activities. This floating market is not far from Bangkok so it's worth visiting and experience the Thai local market. Thank you for choosing Tour East Thailand

Cool Floating Market - not sure about the Elephant Village
Quite a long drive and a stupid early start at 6.10am but necessary to get out of Bangkok quickly.

Floating Market was good although really just for tourists.

We also went to a coconut "factory" which was good and an elephant and tiger etc. village which left us feeling a little sad as the animals (especially the tigers) didn't look too good - not how we expect to see them treated in the
UK. Also everything was very expensive.

Other than this was really enjoyable - and not a lot of walking which was great as we're still tired from several other tours we've done !!!

Cool place ruined by tourist garbage
Feb 2020
The floating markets are a really cool place that is ruined by the amount of crap on sale for tourists. It's all junk that you can see in Bangkok, but it was still fun nonethless.

The reason for 3 stars is the tour could have been better organised by letting us know roughly how long the journey will be because we almost had a toilet issue on the way back which seemed to take almost twice as long as the way there with no stop for the happy room.

You can see different aspects of a dynamic Bangkok. Dont go with any taxi driver as they will rip you off.

Agree to not go with public taxi, higher price and some can be tricky. Book the tour with travel agencies (any) can be sure it's safe with guide.

Floating markets Worth a Visit For First Time Travellers to Bangkok
Dec 2019
I would recommend any travellers visiting Bangkok for the first time to make a visit to the infamous Floating Markets.
They have a few versions but they one furthest away from the City seems more vibrant and authentic.
Samdoek Floating market the more popular one.
