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.

We booked this trip with UI Tours through our hotel and were quoted 700 baht per person for a tour of the Floating market and a wood carving factory. We weren't too bothered about the latter but we knew, as with most of these kinds of tours, there was always going to be a detour where they try to get... More

I really liked the way of the floating market although it is far from the city but its nice place to visit. The only thing is that the tickets are very very expensive. I hope that the prices will be studied and changed in the future.

We got a taxi driver taking us to Damnoen Saduak floating market. We took a boat tour from one of the piers (Cowke 2) but it just seemed a very expensive (4000 baht) souvenir shop tour!

We visited two floating markets Damnoen Saduak and Amphawa and like the second more. There are more boats at Damnoen Saduak but on boats there were more tourists then vendors. By 10 am it got soo busy that there was a traffic jam on the chanal, boats couldn't go through. It's better to arrive there before 9 am, most tourists... More

Joined a local half day tour as the market is about 1.5 hour drive from Bangkok city. First we took a long boat ride through the canal. Then we walked a short distance dotted with stalls selling cotton top and bottoms and other souvenirs. If you wish you can also take a picture with snake. Then we went to the... More

An experience not to be missed on a trip to Bangkok. Well worth the long drive to the market. Barter well and drive a hard bargain.

If you have not done the floating markets, this is a good one. It's about an hour from Bangkok and a taxi here is reasonable. You pay for the boat tour at the parking lot - I can't remember how much it was, but maybe $25 or so. It's worth it (once). The boat will stop at a coconut sugar... More

Before visit this place i do some research and afterwards i still think the best idea to visit this place is by booking a guide to accompany you in advance. Even i havent try to explore it by myself before but i found this place would ripped u off. Everything in this area is expensive, you pay for the experience.... More
