You'll find different things here, real Thai food, Buddha statues, clothes, etc. If you go to Bangkok you have to go to a floating market. This is one of the most important, it's far from Bangkok but you'll have fun.
This was a very interesting tour and our guide was very good! If you're in the area you should definitely try to see the floating market. Watch out for the Tiger Balm vendors!
Well worth the time. Guide was excellent, full of knowledge that he was eager to share.
Included an additional stop to see how sugar was made from coconut.
Loved the hustle on the water, the colors and smells and bartering with the merchants.
This was an enjoyable day, which turned out to be a great opportunity for shopping. On the way to the markets, we had a stop where our guide explained the uses of the coconut tree. There was a small local market, plus a huge shopping area where silk scarves and all sorts of items were available. Before reaching the Floating Markets, we had an enjoyable ride on the canals. Anyone wanting to have a ride within the Floating Market had to pay extra for it themselves. These markets are probably not used much by locals. The big open market next to the canals has souvenirs and many areas to enjoy Thai food.
Very interesting to see the floating market. I took the optionnal boat at the market and I m glad I did, this is the best way to really appreciate the market
bustling tour, boat ride is thrilling, coconut candy is delicious.
It was nice, but I wish I could take the local floating market.
The Tour enabled us to see a lot driving out to the Long boat. Markets were fantastic and the only downside was that. We would have liked a little time to shop. Terric experience.
We enjoyed our trip to the Floating Markets and it was well worth the money. Our guide left much to be desired. We have taken Viator excursions on a number of occasions but this is the first time our guide has been less than acceptable, however this shouldn't deter anyone from heading to the Floating Markets. It's an experience you don't want to miss when visiting Bangkok.
The overall arrangement was good, local tourist guide is friendly and I did enjoy the trip.
Great day trip and well organised. Interesting place to go but goods were not locally made which was a shame.
Could skip furniture centre etc. and stay Floating Markets longer. I enjoyed the atmosphere but all I could do was having a lunch. There was no time for shopping which I wanted to do.
However, I still enjoyed the tour and nothing problem with the plan;-)
