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 were organised this trip by our hotel just for the experience. Fairly long trip in the taxi there, but was good to get out of the smoggy city. Knowing that it would be a tourist trap we enjoyed our trip through the canal ways. We brought a little Buddha from one stall but nothing else. ( we were told... More

This place is purely for tourists and as such is also subject to many scams so you must be on your guard. But even so if you haven't been to somewhere like this it makes for an interesting trip and you will get some nice photos and an interesting break from Bangkok. It is quite a way outside of Bangkok... More

Get a group on a longtail boat and you can cruise through the canals. You can shop from the boat as many stores are along the canal, most is just souvenir 'stuff' but there is some real Art and nice crafts if you look for it. And there are lots of food vendors in boats so you can get a... More

What a horrible experience. It's a 1.5 hr trip out of Bangko by private bus. The bus drops you there and you are preyed upon by rude tour guides trying to sell you tickets for the boats. They start at $100 US per person. We refused and the tour guide started yelling at us to get away from the entrance.... More

Wow, what can I say about this market? It is truly one of a kind! It is the original floating market in Bangkok. They have a variety of things to see, eat & buy!! Better yet it is ridiculously cheap, they obviously try their luck and try to rinse your pockets but if you stick to your guns & offer... More

It is supposed to the place where the timeless lifestyle of native Thai people can be observed along the canals but it is getting too commercialized and the sayong can costs up to 4-5 times more. We got a sayong for 300 bahts (mean you this is after bargaining) and you could easily get the same one and same design... More

If you want the experience of going to a floating market then go for it. But this attraction is over priced. Their boats are at a set price and start at $40-50 per person depending on how many places they take you to. I chose to do one temple and two different areas of shopping. My advice is to skip...

It was my first time in Thailand when I visited this "famous" floating market. We're a family of seven members so I was expecting that we will pay a bit bigger but I was wrong. We paid not a BIT, but too much than I expected. We paid approximately 10000 baht for the boat ride alone. Since we're already there,... More

We paid 6000bath for the smelly dirty boat ride, and nothing to shout about this market at all. Everything's here are expensive than in the normal market and even shopping mall. Not to spoil our day, we took it as a time to experience the lifestyle of them. We went during weekday, the traffic of the boat ride is seriously... More
