Famous for its tourist-friendly floating markets, Damnoen Saduak is the one you’ll find in the tourist literature on Thailand. Bring your camera along to witness the river packed with wooden boats overflowing with fruit and vegetables, which they sell to people standing on land. The scene is colourful and loud; just as you’d expect from a Thai market. Just 100km from Bangkok, it’s best accessed by package tour, which any local tour operator can organize.

I went on a short half day tour to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, as I hadn't been to one before and it was recommended by friends. It starts out early from Bangkok since it takes about 1.5 - 2.0 hours to get there, so be prepared for the travel back and forth. Once you arrive, they drop you off... More

My adult son and I visited this market as part of a 1/2 day package tour. It is a one hour drive from Bangkok. Tons of cheap trinkets for sale at multiple stands/vendors (hats, magnets, wooden elephants, etc.) They sell packages with several varieties of spices, including saffron. Cost is 200 TBH. If the saffron were genuine the cost would... More

I consider Damnoen Saduak Floating Market a huge tourist trap, there are other floating markets more authentic and not so expensive. Everything is wayyyyy overpriced, i suggest to buy souvenirs at Chatuchak weekend market for less than half. The slow boat ride (15min - 150thb) was mediocre. Overall i wasn't happy abut the experience but i'm glad i had a... More

Took this in with a private car and tour guide. Stopped off to see the making of sugar palm and also coconuts. Tour was worth while to see the living and working conditions there as well as the locals working hard for your Bhat. Market had usual tat in any Thai market but with it packed with tourists they were... More

We went to the floating market in Sunday. It takes over an hour to get there and longer to return. When we got to the market there was nothing but tourist shops selling outrageously overpriced items. We enquired about the vegetable market and were told we had to go in a small boat. We decided to do this but the... More

In my opinion, This is a must see in Bangkok! The floating market is one of it's main sites. I went there on a half day trip (7:00;13:00). It was really good and you get to see a lot of new stuff and Thai traditions. I didn't buy anything just go there and enjoy the market. The half day trip... More

Authentic but busy and the goods for sale are the same as you would find in a gift shop, yet here much more expensive! But this is Thai people making a living and they expect to be bargained with. Very crowded on the boats and frequent stops and near misses provide great entertainment. Before you enter the main strip there... More

Overvalued touristic place. We payed more than 100,00€ for a private 2 hour boat stroll for 2 persons and if you add the 30-40€ for the taxi the sum is too high! Keep in mind that it is 100 km far from Bangkok (90') I have to admit that we saw beautiful pictures, is a nice experience and we finally... More
