Transfer to a longtail speedboat for a ride through marshes lined with traditional houses on stilts. Listen to your guide’s commentary about the traditions and history of the region along the way. Upon arrival at the market, you can walk around on the banks to observe the action, or get a closer look by hiring a local boat (additional expense) to take you through the throngs of vendor canoes. See narrow boats that are piled with fresh produce, household goods, and tourist souvenirs. Your tour ends with return transport to Bangkok.

We enjoyed the experience and are glad we did it. However, everything is much more expensive and they are very pushy in selling you stuff so it can be overwhelming. Best to go with the attitude of enjoying the experience than to shop. The tour guy was nice until he tried to

We did this tour with Gift our guide. Private pick up and journey to the markets. A fast speed boat into the markets which was brilliant fun and like something out of James Bond! Then we paid extra to get a row boat round the markets. Really good experience and glad we did it!

It is good with children for different experiences, but not very an entertainment for adults. basically, it's selling holiday stuff. Kids liked the boat trip more than the market itself. Anyway, you still can go there.
