Awesome place and great experience. Great food and people, but they try and take advantage of you so offer 1/4 of is offered and do not move much higher.

Basically there are lots of small stalls with sad looking Thai people before you enter the main floating market - Selling the same stuff you see everywhere in Thailand. Then, when you walk 5 minutes to the actual floating market area, they want foreigners to...More

I prefer Amphawa which is a naturally built alone a natural river floating market and Ayothaya is a manmade river.
