I know what you are thinking, probably like me: Go to Thailand see the beautiful scene of a floating market with fruits and locals in abundance in a lively ambiance with lots of things to see and taste. Well this is not what you will find here. The number of tourist boats easily outnumber the local vendors. There are more souvenir vendors than fruit market vendors.
Our guide actually said that this is purely for tourists as the locals do not shop here but in another market on firm land. We were there on a week day and she did mention that some locals could come on the week ends.
If you do decide to go, be sure to go very very early. We left at 6:30 and arrived before 8:00 but still already 3 buses were there. After nine there is no point we left thereafter so many people.
The local food is great try the noodles (I prefer the bean or darker ones) any fruit to your taste and there are little fried coconut semi spheres which are served as a snack or dessert, excellent.
