One to tick off your list, but once you are on board you are locked in for a perusal of 99 things you would never ordinarily buy! That said, a bit of fun, if a little murky and we only paid for 45 minutes to whizz around, which I can assure you is more than enough time unless

Dear Bakes1 Reviews such as this one from your side are seen as personal views of a tradition that has been a part of the Thai culture since the beginning of the Kingdom. The grounds of the Danmern Saduak Floating market are old and have been the base of what is now seen as one of the country’s must-see landmarks. Of course, we sincerely apologize that you and your travel companions did not enjoy the floating market based on the overly present commercial factor. It is with many bucket list landmarks across the globe that buying souvenirs and reminders of a visit to a destination is part of the experience. We appreciate your positive view on the Maeklong Railroad market as a positive light during your Thailand visit. It has certainly added value to how our customers see and experience Thailand. With kind regards Asian Trails Thailand

There are a lot of bad reviews about this. Yes they try to sell you things, and yes they hook your boat but you are not obliged to buy and a friendly no thank you does the trick. Just be open minded and smile and enjoy the scenery. Try to spot a goanna in the quiter parts of the

Dear Vacatio Thank you very much for your honest and personal experience visiting the Damnern Saduak Floating Market. Taking up its own spot as must-see around Bangkok, it is an institution that certainly is not left aside when first-time explorers enter the Kingdom of Thailand. We wholeheartedly support and agree with your review to look it from this perspective and see that there is indeed a bit more than meets the eye. The right perception on Damnern Saduak, located outside Bangkok, is a good starting point to see the hereditary story behind its existence. It has been our sincere pleasure showing you this landmark in Thailand’s vast list of must-sees, and we’re looking forward showing you (much) more in the near future. With kind regards Asian Trails Thailand

I enjoyed this market alot, you go there, get in a boat and tool around the area, you can stop, shop and even buy things and great food from other boats passing by. Lots of tourists but it was very unique and I have not seen a place like this in all of my travels. Great food

Dear finesilver Such a joy to read how thoroughly you’ve enjoyed the Damnern Saduak Floating Market. The authentic vibe, the hustle and bustle of an institution of how commerce was driven a century ago are key elements of how once the waterways were used for bringing good to the customers and how customers interact with traders from across the region. It is great to read that there are lots of photo opportunities you’ve found around the floating market. We’re happy to read you’ve had a great time with our guide on this venture outside of Bangkok. We appreciate your positive view on the Damnern Saduak as a positive light during your Thailand visit. It has certainly added value to how our customers see and experience Thailand.

It was a beautiful experience, and our tour guide was amazing. A lot of the stuff sold on the river could found much cheaper in the markets. But it’s an experience we enjoyed and we bought some beautiful paintings

Dear HelsBel Thank you very much for your honest and personal experience visiting the Danmern Saduak Floating Market. We do regret reading that this visit was not up to your expectations and, according to your review, incomparable with the floating markets in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta. Thailand’s most famous floating market forms an essential part of must-sees for visitors to Thailand. The market’s popularity has indeed seen a change in sales opportunities, yet the concept has retained its original set-up. We completely understand that you made a comparison with previous floating markets and that this visit has been a disappointment has been noted. We profoundly hope that our Asian Trails execution of the tour has been a satisfactory one, were guide and transportation services exceeded expectations. With kind regards Asian Trails Thailand
