SIGHT
S
Chedi(biggest in Thailand) , Night Market, Damnoen Floating Market.

S Damnoen floating market: from NP take bus #78 (a/c, 24B 1h,) ask bus attendant for floating market. The bus stops on the N side of Chei in front of Police station. Go there at 6:00 so you will get to the market before it is full of tourists by 9am. From Damnoen Bus station, take a van or songthiaw to the market (frequent, 10min, 5B) or you can walk to the market 2-3 km.
At the market you can rent a boat. Boat with attached engine is noisy, better to take boat(6 persons) without engine. Bargain hard. 200B for 30-40 min, visiting 2 markets (actually the 2 parts of the same market) Bigger boats with engine run regularly when more tourists are around, you can join that one as well.
From Damnoen Bus Station to Bangkok: Bus at 10:00, 55B. (more departures during the day)
