Worth seeing. Floating market is really nice and interesting experience. Very nice guide. This is must see in Thailand.
The floating markets were amazing. Full of life and vibrant. The cultural center seemed a little "forced" and the show a little manufactured but I would certainly recommend visiting the floating markets
had a bit of confusion with as to pick-up point-we agreed earlier to meet at another hotel since we were told they do not pick-up at our hotel but our guide looked for us at our hotel when we were already at the agreed pick-up point.but no big deal because we did not lose much time anyway.travel to the floating market was comfortable because my family(3 of us) had the van to ourselves and the guide entertained us with a brief history of thailand.failed to get our guide's name but she was nice.she even advised me to try one dessert which she said was good.i did as i was told and glad that i did because it was good as she described.lunch at sampran riverside was good,and we had plenty of time to eat since we got there early from the orchid farm and floating market and before the cultural show.a lot of food to choose from.cultural show was fun,i especially liked the choreographed muay thai bit and a little boy seated in front of us enjoyed it as well because it was the only part of the show that got a reaction from him.hearing the boy's laugh was priceless.the elephant show,however,was too short and the price to take a picture with an elephant was too expensive-i think no one wanted to pay that much.but some people sneaked pictures with the elephant while the mahut was not looking and i found that offensive.i loved the part when the elephants danced!
The floating markets are worth doing, the meal at the rose garden excellent - but the mini van driver we had was really a bad driver, there was 7 of us in the van and we were all under the same impression. All he wanted to do was beat the coaches and then he was on a mission to drop everyone off. Other then the driver and good day.
Long day but all most interesting. Excellent lunch!
Excellent tour! Floating markets and cultural center were both worth it!
The floating market was one of the best experience of our 5 day trip in Bangkok.The pick up in early morning was prompt and the guide was fluent in English and quite amiable. The Thai cultural center is also a very entertaining spot geared toward tourists (no rose garden though).
Worthwile doing if this is the only cultural show you intend to do whilst you are in Bangkok. Beautiful gardens.
Travelled with family (4) . Only 2 others on minibus. Great well-informed guide. Good value. Lovely lunch at Rose Garden followed by spectacular cultural show. Would have liked an extra 1/2 hr to spend in village following the show.
Another great Bagnkok tour. The longboat ride to the floating markets was a lot of fun, however the number of vendors selling at the actual market was very small. I have been before and the khlong was now full of tourists in boats jostling to get through rather than actual boats selling produce. However the land market was fun to walk through. The Rose Garden Cultural centre was nice - a good show and a nice lunch.
this was boring... floating market is only super busy and active during the high season; the guide will tell you not to eat anything there besides something deeply fried. Prices are the same as in Bangkok if not higher for gifts. The boat ride was OK. Rose Garden portion of the tour was limited to some dance presentation (very rustic quality) and elephant show with very basic tricks and scary looking metal hooks to keep animals in line. I felt bad for the elephants. We also stepped by some gift shop and a place where Buddism was introduced to Thailand... Not much to see but a good stop on the way. I would not recommend this to a friend.
Excellent tour would recommend it. Fantastic guide and well spoken very informative. Tour was always on time.
Enjoyed the floating markets and, whilst they are more commercial now than when my parents visited back in the 1970s, there were still some bargains to be purchased. The long tail boat ride up the canals was interesting. The Rose Garden Cultural Centre wasn't quite what we expected - very commecial. Enjoyed the show inside but the elephant show was somewhat disappointing. Would revisit the markets but wouldn't bother about returing the centre.
Great day but we spent to much time eating the wonderful lunch and didnt see alot of the centre
Enjoyable day trip from Bangkok. Gudie was really informative about the countryside as we were driving along. It was a really good day
