Kanchanburi to Samut Songkhram by public transport
I would like to travel from Kanchanaburi to Samut Songkhram for visit the Amphawa Floating Market. I have searched for the transport in Internet but I didn’t find enough information. I think that there are not a direct way to reach Songkhram. But, I’m not sure. Anycase, which is the best / easy / fast way? How must I do the connections (bus, train) for go there? Do you know any timetables for that?
Could you inform me please?
I apologize for my bad English

Where you say "straight to the Floating Market" (or best... the timetable information say), it is the Damnoen Saduak , it isn't the Amphawa Floating Market that I'm looking for.
Anycase, thank you for your information. It could be useful.
Are there any easy public transport from Damnoen Saduak to Amphawa Market?

Amphawa is a far superior floating market in my opinion - it is a local style, evening food market, run on the weekends. It's worthwhile staying in Amphawa for the night. You can find places to stay right on the canal. More info here: http://www.amphawafloatingmarket.com/
I have posted about Amphawa on previous threads - if you do a search on 'Amphawa' you should find them.
The Damnoen Saduak is very touristy, and you'll find boats selling cheap souvenirs, you'll get hassled to buy, and it's crowded with bus loads of people from Bangkok. Amphawa, on the other hand, is enjoyed by Thai's visiting Amphawa for the weekend. Very few non-Thai tourists make it here - at least that's how it was in 2008.

PS By memory, the markets are only a 10 minute drive apart, so I'm sure you could catch a bus or taxi to the other one.
