Awesome, very different from everything!

We were told many times that the Damnoen Floating Market was “made for tourists” and was “not the real thing”. But as we found out that is great news!!! Just be aware of the shops on the non-floating part! You HAVE to do the boat ride in the market (THB 150/ person)! The floating part is very different from everything you have seen, it’s awesome. The train market is cool, but not something out of this world. If you miss the train time the market itself is sucky so there’s not much to see! The guide was great, very polite and professional.

Excellent guide and bargain online service

Po was an excellent guide, instructing us about the out the history of the maRkets and making sure we had excellent opportunities for pictures. Though both these locations were crowded, he made it possible for us to have a very enjoyable boat ride in the water market. Riding the train to the Mekong Market was a perfect choice.

Great experience! Loved the Train Market

Well run tour. Lucky, our guide was really nice. The train market is awesome and one of the most authentic things we did in Thai. And we got to ride the train straight trough it. Floating market was an interesting experience and a must do for first comers in BBK, but, opposite to train market, it's touristic and nothing authentic - only overpriced souvenirs. I liked everything about the tour, except that we were kinda forced to take the boat ride inside the market for extra 150 bat/p. I would have preferred to just walk on the docs, the ride was nothing special and really annoying how vendors try to coerce you into buying stuff. Other than this - the tour was perfect and had a great schedule.

Great experience! Only in Thailand - must go!

For something different, take this tour to ride on the train straight through the market so close that you can reach out and touch the products on sale. The floating market is also another unique experience that you should go for. Floating in a boat from store to store and bargaining while on the boat. A different experience from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Great Itinerary and Knowledgeable & friendly guide

Fantastic Itinerary, esp the ride on the local train into the market. The floating market was too crowded when we visited and the farmers boat was 'stuck in river traffic'
