It’s a pretty decent floating market. The snack and food are tasty and with quite a selection. The noodle is nice. Take note that there is a parking fee of 60bahts and entrance fee of 200bahts if you are foreigner.

Great time, a bit $30 for floating market ride and another $25 per person for elephant rides. Great time unique experiences. Once in a lifetime, well taken care of by locals. Great time, good for whole family.

This place was terrible. 200 bhat for a lame boat ride around a market. Total tourist trap. Not worth it at all.

It's all in the same compound. So you can walk back and forth.
