You have to pay 200 baht to visit the floating market. You can see the elephants without having to pay for the show and ride on them if you want. the shops here sell the famous spun sugarcane and tourist clothes at cheap prices.

I came here in early 2015 when I permanently left the West behind me. So much to see & do. Lots of great products & crafts to buy or see. Delicious food. A true Thai cultural experience.

I prefer the other one, but this is okay. Much less crowded, but still very touristy. Does provide a break from all the ruins.

Awesome place and great experience. Great food and people, but they try and take advantage of you so offer 1/4 of is offered and do not move much higher.

Basically there are lots of small stalls with sad looking Thai people before you enter the main floating market - Selling the same stuff you see everywhere in Thailand. Then, when you walk 5 minutes to the actual floating market area, they want foreigners to...More
