floating market costs

by orangegal

This is for those who have gone to the floating market on their own (and not with a tour group).

1. What are the best hours to visit?
2. Is there an entrance fee to the market?
3. Is it better to visit one of the smaller, lesser known markets and would they have entrance fees as well?

Re: floating market costs

Be aware of that you can be fooled to go to the Big Floating Market in Damnoen Saduak. I was. I bought a tour to what I believed was the Floating Market in Bangkok and found myself in a minibus for hours, going 100 km to Damnoen Saduak. I don't say it wasn't very interesting, but I'm still not sure it was worth all these hours in a minibus on a motorway.

Payphones

by jrs1234

Every time I visit Bangkok, there seems to have been yet another change to the way payphones work - although I'm hoping that the most recent changes will be a little more permanent. There were 2 types of public payphones much in evidence around Bangkok this time - the newish TOT phones (pictured), which take coins and are good for calls around Thailand, and the yellow Lenso payphones which take cards (usually available from nearby convenience stores).

Encouragingly, most of the payphones I tried this time were working (a big improvement on 2004), and the rates on international calls from Lenso phones had dropped dramatically - a big bonus! However, save up your coins if you want to use a TOT payphone, on the few calls I made, they seemed to get used up pretty quickly...

Dos and Don'ts

by manice

Here are just a few, but the most important rules.

Do Smile:
Thailand is known as the land of smiles. Thais do not necessarily smile about something like we do in the west. They smile for a variety of other reasons too. To say hello or thank you, to make a request, to apologize, to smooth over bad feelings or to show embarrassment.

Do show respect for the king: Thai people show great respect for their king and they expect visitors to do so too. The national anthem is played twice a day (typically at 8am and 6 pm) and also before every film at the cinema. Everyone is expected to stand whilst it is playing. You should never insult or joke about the king or royal family.

Do show respect for their main religion, for the Buddha, and for monks. Shorts or tank tops should not be worn in a temple, and shoes should be removed before entering. It is considered very improper for women to touch a monk.

Do not touch anyone on the head. The head is considered to be very sacred.

Do not point your feet at anyone or anything. This is quite hard for a westerner to follow as, without realising it, we do in some circumstances seem to use our feet quite a lot e.g closing or opening doors. I never realised how much I use my feet until I was made very conscious of it in Thailand.

Do not step over anyone instead walk around them.

Wear as little as possible!

by Khairiah

Bring a half empty luggage. A big one. My friends were laughing at how big my luggage was but I had the last laugh cos after all the shopping, and it's time to to home, I could dump everything into the luggage and did not have the hassle of having a bulky hand carry. Hahahaha! Shoes- Slippers or sandals. Don't bother with heels, or track shoes cos they make your feet sweat and that's mighty uncomforI was there for 4 days, and this was what I brought: 2 pairs of shorts, a pair of bermudas, jeans for the airport, 5 singlets. Pack light cos you can get almost everything there.
