Visit to the Floating Market

We drove for about 1.5hrs on a minibus from Bangkok to a small canal were we boarded our long tail boat which would take us to the market.

Soon we came upon boats floating up the canal selling various hot food and fruit. Thai silk, hats etc were sold on the banks from wooden stalls.

We booked an English speaking guide to escort us and teach us about Thai culture. Andy was excellent and I would definitely recommend booking a guide. We were shown some great photo opportunities and we were able to get out of our boat and walk around the covered market too. I wasn’t brave enough to try any food there. But the food did smell delicious.
A must do, if you come to Bangkok. Exceeded my expectations!
