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.

This is definitely not the cheapest place in Thailand for shopping. But for the experience, it's a must do. Get on the boat a little outside the main area and enjoy driving into the market in less crowded waters. In the main channel of the market, it's jam packed but a wonderful tourist experience. Buy yourself a coconut drink, sit... More

Observe how, in days gone by, the ancient trading of wares is conducted between hundreds of local farmers and villagers aboard small Sampan boats. The boats are fully loaded with all kinds of products including fruits, vegetables, dry goods, and freshly cooked food. I would take a walk through the area and explore the canal waterways. If you see something... More

Tourist place but worth a visit if you have not been to a floating market. Just treat it as a boat trip where you can easily buy local snacks. I particularly liked the coconut ice-cream. You can probably skip the souvenirs coz they are just the same everywhere. I did however manage to pickup a Damnoen Saduak t-shirt which i... More

Although I didn't rate with the worst mark since it was not completely disappointing , I think it is a complete rip-off and therefore I don't recommend it. One hour is 2000 baht (65 dollars ) which includes just the boat (additionally think about the 60 min which takes to arrive here by car from Bangkok) . The biggest disappointment... More

An hours ride away from city and best visited as part of a conducted tour along with the railway market (avoid the elephant camp and coconut sugar stops if possible- a big waste). You can reach the main market by road or from the main highway by a motorised long-boat and then travel through the crowded market canals by a... More

Visiting this area is best done with a tour group (Mine was Tour East Thailand). They would pick you up at the hotel and drop you off at the entrance of the long boat and that will get you to the floating market. Unfortunately, you will have to pay an additional 200 baht (with other people) or 1000 baht for... More
