Overall not bad and the guide "Pit" was very informative. You will go through the whole process of how they make the brown sugar from the coconut trees in about 15 to 20 minutes. Informative but short and very basic place. There are markets near by if you want to shop.

Stopping off at the Coconut Sugar Farm was part of the floating market trip. It is interesting to see how the sugar is extracted from the coconut but dont spend more than 10 minutes here.

This is a very small, very low tech venture in which three metal basins are filled with liquid gathered from the flowers of the coconut and are heated by a coconut wood driven fire till the liquid evaporates and coconut sugar solids are left. Quite nice, tastes a bit like palm sugar, but don't expect a factory.

During Floating market we visited the coconut sugar farm. I found it to be very interesting the way sugar is produced. Helpful staff explained the process. I would recommend stopping here. Tip : sunscreen, sunhat, good camera and take time

This was a total scam. The tour company stops here on the way to the floating market. However, it's just to sell overpriced souvenirs. I heard our tour guide it was much cheaper to buy here vs the floating market; that was an outright lie. Same items in the floating market were 1/2 off with some negotiating. Enjoy watching the...

We arrived to the Coconut Sugar Farm as part of a tour package on the way to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. We were shown how the workers climb the coconut trees to cut the coconut flower buds and collect the sap. We were then allowed to try climbing the tree using the bamboo pole as a ladder. This was risky... More

Visited the coconut sugar farm as part of a long tail boat package. We were served with cold coconut sugar drinks which was really nice and bought coconut sugar candies as souvenirs.

Never knew that sugar could be made from coconuts prior to my visit here. Interesting process. we were given the chance to taste-very nice and aromatic sugar. Also what was interesting is the many uses of coconuts-nothing is wasted. they also had an Orchid Farm-not many blooms to see as well as a curio market.

When we got there they let us try the coconut milk sugar. They explained how they make it. They also have a gift shop there so we enjoyed looking at the cool things they made with coconut shells. We also go to look inside their house.

It was first time for me to see how they are cooking the coconut to get the sugar. No one there to explain to you if you do not have tour guid, it was in the way of floating market and only for 5 minutes.
