Not big enough to be called a floating market as there are only 6-7 boats but its the nearest one to the centre of bangkok and will give you an idea what a floating market is.

Honestly just go to any other market. The stalls don't offer anything other than the same cheap stuff you can get on Khao San Road but they charge 5 times more. The boats are small and don't like waiting if you're interested in buying something. They seem to operate on a quick round means more money system, then they look... More

We got a taxi here for 200 bahts, we thought it was a beautiful small floating market, also more Thais here than tourists, lovely food cooked to order, not tourist stall, just a local market that has lots to offer, we sat afterwards and just people watched, we would definitely return as its not full of cheap tack like the...

DO not sign up for the cocrodile and monkey show. It's obvious the animals are not in an ideal situation. It's very visable. Just do the floating market, that's what the real experience is. The concept is wonderful.

Go early in the morning and empty stomach, coz there will be plenty of options to eat and shop, and it's not at all expensive. We also took a 3 hour long-tail boat ride (in mixed group) which took us to two other nearby floating markets (where we were given half an hour to explore those markets) and dropped us... More

the boat trip along the river and canals is a bit overpriced but has some charm... however... When you get to the floating market you'll find, if you go in the afternoon, that you have half an hour to review a load of tourist tat (and some good food) in a location almost totally lacking in what I (you???) ever...

Nothing super amazing or special about the floating market but it's still worth seeing. I highly recommend getting there early (7:30-8am) as it gets very crowded during the day. The majority, if not all items sold there are mass produced and made in China, however you can get some nice art work. It's about an hour to an hour and... More

Very singular markets, nice to see once in your life but if you have few days in Bangkok I would invest time and money in other visits. They are crazy expensive, only the access costs 2000 bath per person. Taxi drivers try to take people there asking very few money for the taxi without telling them the access price to... More
