You can go around the Sam Pan Nam Floating Market by taking its little train or by boat for 20 baht per person. The shops are in white wooden houses and there are a few nice decoration elements like real fishing boats. Like all recent floating markets in Thailand, it is has not a lot a common with traditional thai floating markets and is basically a mall around a pound. You will find many clothing stores, crafts and gadgets shops and restaurants and cafes. In the center, there is a big building housing a food center where you can eat sitting on the floor at low tables and choose your menu from the boats and stalls offering food and drinks. There is sometimes a little dancing show on the water. but it is not very good to be honest...
