Make sure you go early. The river clogs up with boats pretty quickly and by lunchtime you are completely stalled in more than a few places. The food is good, the shopping is better and learning about this sub-culture from years gone by is fascinating.

Not the busiest floating market in Bangkok but definitely worth the visit, and there is a high number of local people visiting here and not too many tourists. We went from the centre of Bangkok on the number 79 bus (picking up the bus on...More

Great food. Durian sticky rice is very sweet and delicious. Seeing people in boat to sell the food is very unique. I eat some prawn, is very fresh and yummy.

Talingchan Floating Market is worth a trip if you're just in nearby tourist attractions such as the Grand Palace, Wat Arun, and Reclining Buddha. Although Damnueang Saduak Floating Market is the biggest in TH, if you have limited time in Bangkok, then better go to...More

Cheap at around 80 baht for over an hour on a long boat around the canals of Bangkok. A lot of fun and a couple of brief stops along the way. The only negative was the well meaning but overbearing tour guide on the microphone...More

A nice experience. Easily reached by bus 79 (under 20 BHT), although the ride is about 40-50min from Pratunam Market, depending on traffic. As it’s mostly food, it‘d be a waste if you’re not hungry. Dishes look delicious and prices are most decent, starting 30BHT...More

This local market is only 30 mins from Sukiumviet; good to spend half day from the morning. Only ¥69 baht for the one hour river cruise including one drop off point to visit local temples. But the guide on the cruise was too loud on...More

The place (the land market hall) is very clean and well maintained. However there is nothing much to see at the market as there were not more than 10 boats in operation/business and mostly there were selling food (of which then they will serve the...More

The floating market is totally a tourist trap and way outside of Bangkok. Worth going to see and all the little shops have cool stuff but be ready to bargain for anything you buy because everything is overpriced! There is a temple that you can...More

What do you mean by doing a boat cruise without doing bike tour? Can't really understand the purpose of the question. Thanks
