Went to the floating market – at last.
Took a taxi from Bangkok (900 baht return). It was about 2 hours away. Unfortunately, he actually went to one of the touts that has a boat tour going on, which charged THB 1500 for a 1.5 hour trip, and it not even to our choice market (he said it was not open yet). He brought us to another market, Damnoen Saduak, which was actually closed and inactive in the afternoon (amazingly, he forgotten this fact!).
The boat ride was quite nice though.
Then, later the taxi driver brought us to the market. Now, that’s nice, though it was really packed at that time.
I recommend this market if you’re interested in a floating market. Firstly, not many tourists here so you dont get the usual touts. There are some boat rides available, and cheaper too (bout THB 600). But only one thing, you’d have to be able to withstand some horrible singing as there are several open-air river-side karaoke!
