Every Sunday from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM Channel 7 broadcasts fights from its boxing stadium. There are no tickets, so it attracts many locals. You can see pretty intense fights plus it's fun to see locals placing bids.
Took me something around 3 hours to go through everything. The place is full of shiny, golden architecture. To get inside, you have to wear a shirt that covers your shoulders and pants that covers your knees. Would recommend getting a guide from outside.
Bought it, put it in my bag, took it in the apartment, put it in the fridge. After five minutes I realized something was smelling in the freeze. It was durian. Tried it, tasted okayish and then threw it away. It's rather expensive as well, I paid 7 € for the thing. Some like, it some love it (the Chinese absolutely love it), most can't stand it. It tastes something like a sweet smudgy onion with a fruity side taste.
Damnoen Saduak floating market. These markets used to be for the locals to come together and trade goods. Floating markets started turning into tourist attractions from about 20 years ago. Cost me 1000 THB (25 €) and took 4 hours. They also took us to a coconut factory. I think the purpose of the factory was to make some additional money from us, tourists. For a more authentic experience, I was recommended to visit Amphawa floating market which is near Damnoen Saduak.
