Experience authentic Thai culture on a Damnoen Saduak Floating Market day trip from Bangkok. Unlike other Damnoen Saduak tours, this experience includes an exhilarating ride on a long-tailed speed boat, which transports you to the rural location with efficiency and ease. A guide reveals essential information about the market’s history and produce, and teaches you Thai phrases that help you interact with locals. Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off are also included.
What to Expect

Your day trip begins with pickup from your Bangkok hotel, where you’ll board a vehicle destined for Damnoen Saduak. Upon arrival, you’ll transfer to a long-tailed boat and speed through marshes and past atmospheric stilt houses. En route you’ll receive a comprehensive introduction to the culture and history of the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.

Cruise past floating stalls selling fresh produce and exotic fruits while your guide explains the origin and use of particularly unique ingredients along the way. For an additional cost, you can purchase souvenirs and opt to take a ride on a local boat.

After sufficient exploration of the market, return to your Bangkok hotel via boat and bus.

Experience but over priced

Wanted to see floating market because they are diminishing around the world. We were talked into going to market by taxi driver, his cost and and the ultimate cost of getting a boat when we got there as a bit of rip off. We should...More

Dear Palman13, Not sure why you posted here. You are exactly right, you should have taken a lesser priced tour to get to the floating market instead of being ripped off. But you didn’t. (I’m sure your 3Star day would’ve been a 5Star day if...More
