  • Very cool place. Definitely something to do to get a feel for the local floating market. The food on the floating market was extra delicious. Partly due to the fact that I hadn't had breakfast yet. Everything is overpriced and it's definitely geared towards tourists, but that comes with the territory. The ride from Bangkok is long. This is definitely a fun, half day tour that will give you something to remember. All of the sounds and fragrances of the market are certainly unique.
  • The longish ride from hotel pick up in Bangkok to the floating market was a great choice to see in a tourist setting the way things were in Bangkok as long thin boats plied the canal ways selling wares. It is fairly priced for authentic food and souvenirs and you are able to also take in part of the day with the elephants that also provide a nature experience. Riding the elephants was very human and fun and the elephants are well cared for and very happy. It might seem controversial, but I felt it was very natural and gave me a bonding with elephants that surely was beneficial to both.
