We then glided down the narrow canals and had a peek at the houses on stilts that line the sides of the river and get to see the peaceful and quiet everyday lives of the locals which is a total contrast to the hectic and busy market.

Navigating through the canal on a boat while shopping for affordable souvenirs, delicacies, and local products is definitely a cultural experience you shouldn't miss when visiting Thailand. You can also grab some local Thai snacks and drinks like Pad Thai, fresh coconut juice, coolers, teas, fresh seafood, fruits, vegetables, and more. It's not just a cultural experience, but also a gastronomic adventure as well.

What I love about this tour is that we were given ample free time to explore on our own to enjoy the food, immerse in the culture, and to shop. The tour also includes passing by the old Chinese floating market which is said to be the original location of the floating market before it was transferred to its current location, a visit to a local seafood market where you could also shop or have some snacks before going back to Bangkok, and given King Power Duty Free Privileges voucher.
