“A place for food lovers”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

Well, it's not like bangkok, you are not on a boat surfing around to buy food or souvenirs, in fact, you walk around to buy foods on the boat. It's quite amazing place where you will find some of weird and disgusting food such as crickets, scorpions, etc... of cos they do have normal foods! It's cheap n yummy!!

“Unique market”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Drove there from Malaysia during Songkran festival.. The whole country was on festive mode.. Food was delicious yet cheap.. The sellers on the boat were mostly Muslim so good news for Muslim tourists.. A little bit hot and spicy tho for noodles.. As for location, it's a little bit difficult to find as the signboard was small.. Need to ask for directions from info centre at central festival huge shopping mall.. The floating market sell food starting from 5 pm till night 8 or 9..

“Touristy but worth a look”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

You'll get some good photo opportunities here from the bridge so go as the sun goes down. The floating vendors are just selling food and snacks, there isn't much else on offer but its definitely with a look.

There is no entrance fees but the tuktuk drivers down town will rip you off for the journey which is only 4-5km.

“FLOATING MARKET”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Dogs are everywhere. The whole area needs some cleaning from trash. The market, however, is unique. The vendors peddle food from boats parked by the river side
