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.

Good for a experience but it's commercialized and not a must visit

If you time in Bangkok only do this or else take this off your calendar. The cost to reach the location itself from central Bangkok is 2000 to 2500 if hiring a car. It's a good... read more

It was an eye opener seeing the market on our way to visit kanchanaburi. The boat noodles were delicious and there was no pressure to buy any souvenirs as we passed by. We reached at 9.45 am and managed to avoid the big crowd.

I was really looking forward to this but it was a real let down. There were too many people there. We were on a paddle boat and the motorised boats were just pushing their way past us. The poor lady who was paddling the boat was struggling to get us anywhere. For some reason, it appeared like everyone was going... More

It took us almost 2 hours to get to the market. Market itself was not impressive to say softly, total waste of time. They charged us 20$ per person for the boat ride to get there. Had we known how far away it is, we would have never agreed to go there. Double check with drivers before agreeing to any... More

If you time in Bangkok only do this or else take this off your calendar. The cost to reach the location itself from central Bangkok is 2000 to 2500 if hiring a car. It's a good 1hr 45 min drive and once there you need to shell 3000THB for a boat irrespective you are single or the max capacity of... More

We booked a taxi to takes to and from central Bangkok to the floating market. Good value for 1500 baht. However when we get there the first place was charging 2500 baht each for a boat. Extortionate. The taxi driver then took us to second place. 2000 baht for an hour on a boat. We teamed up with another couple... More

I booked a private tour online using Viator. What a nice experience. The floating market was quite a distance from our hotel but the tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The long tail boat ride was also quite nice. It was interesting to see how ladies sell their merchandise from boats and some were cooking and selling too. An... More

We spent 2 hours here before visiting other temples in Ratchaburi,Samut Sakhon n Samut Songkram.they are spectacular architectural buildings n monuments. The boat ride along the klongs or canals was an eye-opener,seeing how the people blend in this adversity.This floating market is the biggest.Amphawa comes to in the evenings.I feel that 2000 baths is too exhorbitant for the boat ride...

Really disappointing. It took us 1,5h to get there. Then you pay 2.000 baht for a boat that leads you to a very busy place full of tourist shops with Chinese made souvenirs. Not worth doing.

The Floating market at the Damnoe Saduak area is one of the excursions that many tourists long to go to when in Bangkok. I took a personalised taxi service from the hotel because I run out of days and the agencies were all booked up or needed at least 2 persons to sign up together. As it turned out it... More
