It is a very interesting experience but the entire floating market is a big tourist trap. The "Coconut Farm" is no exception. Having said that, I bought two bags of coconut sugar (which tastes similar to maple sugar) for 100 baht. I have never seen in Canada and can use it when making Thai curries.
DO NOT take a taxi to the market and try to get a long tail boat there. They will charge you an exorbitant price. MAKE SURE you take a group tour that includes the long tail boat. Do not fall for the private tour scam! Other than that, as an experience it was great and we really enjoyed it.
