Trip to the famous Floating Market

Standard

The floating market day was filled with excitement ahead. All ready to explore the famous market.

Well all I can say is it’s not what we all expected especially from the online pictures.

And what really ticked me off was the fee they charged for that boat ride. After taking the taxi there for the whole day which was $60 it’s a 2 hour journey out of bangkok. I can’t complain with that price. Having a taxi for the whole day for that price was absolutely worth it.

But once you arrive there they jack you up with a $90 fee for taking the bangkok handmade speed boat.

Now try to negotiate but I said oh well we are here let’s just do it and for all we know it’s going to be fun.

well it was ok but definitely not worth an all day taxi and a 2 hour drive and my $90….

And the prices was outrageous of the things they are selling. A bottle of water there is 20 baht and on the main land we pay

7 baht..now that is a rip off…

After our floating market trip we did the elephant farm..now I think the kids had a lot of fun on this farm touching live animals.

A stop at the coconut sugar farm was fun....how they make the coconut sugar.
