Overview
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.

Dear Smartor, As you have not been on a tour with our company not sure why you are posting here as you made your own way to the floating market. Therefore we can not comment if you did this independently. Thanks. Nick

Interesting tourist trap but still a tourist trap

While it was certainly fun to ply the canals of a floating market, it felt extraordinarily touristy and what was for sale was overpriced and of poor quality. Plus, some of the salespeople had a mafioso feel to them; a feeling that was validated by...More

Dear Gerard, Thanks for the comments. Just to answer your points. This is a tourist attraction even though locals also visit here. You may expect higher prices like any tourist attraction in the world. As this is an open market, its fun if you haggle...More

Marred by noisy motorboats

This floating market is a very popular tourist activity. It is interesting and colorful. Lots of photo opportunities. But it is much smaller than I expected. Our trip was also marred by the MANY motorized boats which are on the water. They are noisy and...More
