  • KLOOK's one-day itinerary, coupled with Zhongzhong, is very convenient for a full day in the suburbs of Bangkok. Chinese, with a single, plus mostly Hong Kong, West China, Taiwan people and other casual visitors, may be people to get a degree of light, but for the first time visitors to say to save traffic, come back, clear tips are useful.

  • I went on a tour in late August. I know that the floating market here is becoming a tourist destination. First of all, it goes to the vicinity of the rowing boat boat by the speedboat. Because the speed goes out considerably, the wind is pleasant, and it is happy in the sense of attraction. In the rowing boat, the female boatman said nothing and proceeded with the boat. Fried food on souvenirs and fruits... They sell a lot on both ends of the ship and the river, and sometimes they are talked to by the vendors, but they are not persistent. In advance, the tour guide told us that souvenirs are more expensive than buying them in Bangkok, so we bought coconut ice cream (60B) and enjoyed the atmosphere. The rowing boat was crowded, but it was not enough to move forward, and the boarding time was about 20 minutes. The guide says that it is vacant today. It is recommended if you want to taste the atmosphere of the floating market.

  • It is a very interesting experience but the entire floating market is a big tourist trap. The "Coconut Farm" is no exception. Having said that, I bought two bags of coconut sugar (which tastes similar to maple sugar) for 100 baht. I have never seen in Canada and can use it when making Thai curries.
  • DO NOT take a taxi to the market and try to get a long tail boat there. They will charge you an exorbitant price. MAKE SURE you take a group tour that includes the long tail boat. Do not fall for the private tour scam! Other than that, as an experience it was great and we really enjoyed it.
