It is nice place worth seeing especially if you are at the floating market nearby. A taxi from Bangkok to see both costed us 2000 bath return trip. Find out what time the train passes through the market, great to see!

It is a MUST VISIT even though i spent a short time there. The journey is long. My hotel like many, is in the Pratunam area. We took the tour bus there and it took about 1.5 hours, excluding picking pax up from other hotels....More
