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.

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.

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!!

2 hours trip from Bangkok - you pay 4000bht for a boat and then on top you Can order all sorts of weird things - did the city of Long necks - just sad.
In the boat you are trapped to look at all the stuff on your Way.
The food was cheap and Nice

This is a tourist trap. Be aware! Taxi drivers from Bangkok will offer you a day trip for about 1500 Bhat, but they won't take you to the main market. You will arrive to a tourist point were they will ask you to pay 2000-5000 Bhat. They will take you through the canals to tourists shops. You will just feel as their prisoner.
We wasted half a day and there was nothing to see.

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.

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

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 !!!

Tourist scam! Arrived there and it was 2500 baht EACH. May be better to book through a tour but honestly i wouldn’t even bother. Barely any of the markets were open and the ones that were all sold exactly the same items (the stuff you can find in every souvenir shop in Thailand). Waste of time and money. £60 wasted to float down a dirty river and then have to pay to buy things at a higher price than usual

I cant make it any clearer..

The driver will drive u for nearly 2 hrs then u reach to some carpark where people lying around smoking.

They will say u need a boat to go to the markets and the car cannot go there only tourist buses..bs!!

2hrs for 2000 baht each..i refused so they dropped it to 1500 baht.

i want to go to ampawa market..but the guy took us to their friends shop..obviously they are all in it together.

I was with my with, 2 kids aged 2 and 5.

A mango cost 80 baht..told the lady in BKK its 20 baht..serz.

He took us around the river showing us old shanty when i instructed i want to go and eat at the market.

we finally reached Ampawa but he wont stop because we ran out of time.

He dropped us off to where our driver was waiting...at the pier!!! It was just around the corner from the boat scam!!!

Ampawa was only a 5 minute river ride and you can actually drive there...

so to all the 5 star reviews..u guys have no idea

I told the driver off and said I will still pay you the agreed price and hopefully he wont scam other people anymore.

They are all in it together.

Thank you for your valuable review. When you mentioned "the guy" meaning "guide" ? If you can clarify more details such as your real name, date / time would help us investigate quicker. We are sorry for your disappointment
