Most of the boats stop here to let customers to walk around a bit and if you want to buy done things. For me it was nothing just another shop. Waste of time!

We stopped here as part of our floating market boat trip price (we payed way too much after taxi driver dropped us off at a deserted carpark: 6000TBH!). It was nice to stretch the legs a little, walk around & see the standard souvenirs that were pretty pricey. You will find same items at markets in BKK for half the... More

Don't buy anything here! Our floating markets tour stopped here, so we were happy to stretch our legs after the ride from Bangkok. The gift market is very over priced, and you can get it all elsewhere. The coconut flower, and processes were interesting, but only mildly so.

1 Pack of coco sugar for 50 Baht that's it. They sell expensive souvenirs and other stuff. Don't buy inside Coconut Sugar Farm specially for foreigners like me. They charge too much on their goods. You will think you have bargained already and got a cheaper price but when you go in other stores (outside coco sugar farm) it is... More

The coconut Sugar Farm was part of our boat ride and on the way to the Floating Market, so we didn't mind the 10 minutes we stayed there. The lady did explain to us roughly how coconut sugar were harvested. We were served some free drinks and friandise from coconut sugar. If you liked it, you could buy them directly... More

My husband and I visited the Coconut Sugar Farm as part of a day trip to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. On arrival our tour guide gave a few minutes overview of the making of palm sugar – there were only a few staff members around but no one to give any detailed information, there were also no information signs...

Extremely friendly people who taught us everything about how sugar is harvested from coconut trees and what they do with it and all the coconuts. We also had a look through a traditional Thai farm house which was just beautiful.

When we arrived, no one was around. No explanation on how the sugar is made, no written explanation on the banners as well. Basically the place was dead.

We visited the coconut sugar farm as part of our tour to Damnoen Saduak floating markets. We didn't know about it before visiting the area, and didn't even realise that it would be part of the tour we had taken. The farm is located a few minutes south of Damnoen Saduak township, surrounded by dense coconut palm plantation and can... More

It's really cool to see. It is very touristy and candies here are overpriced compared to the other places, but it is worth to see and also to buy some candies ready made in front of you
