TakeMeTour's Review

Though we mentioned Ayothaya Floating Market has countless things to see, there’s more! Here, you can discover the authentic culture of Thailand through traditional performances which are available daily. However, check the schedule, as Light and Sound shows are usually there on weekdays, and Thai Dance Shows are performed on weekends. When visiting Ayodia Market, you will see a group of locals stopping over at Ganesh Statue for a worship. So here’s your chance to bring home a good fortune. Plus, take a stair to the second floor to see a full view of the pagoda!
