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 tour is for those who don't mind an operation set up for tourists only which makes it not authentic. I like supporting local venders, but prices at this market are higher than normal to take advantage of the tourists. Furthermore, when booking with Click2Go,...More

It is definitely a unique experience with riding a boat through the market. However, be careful of spending the 4000 baht as it is not required. Strictly tell your driver to take you to the market and then you can take a boat of around...More

The first mistake we made was forgetting to ask if there happened to be some sort of admission price (one wouldn't think so as it is just a market - right?). After a 1 hour frantic high speed taxi trip (with no seat belts) for...More

My title might sound bit strange and wierd but I reached that conclusion after spending 4000 Bhat. Looking at the pictures, the history and the reviews I was pretty excited to visit the floating market. But getting there by taxi after about an hour drive...More

1. Set expectations with the boat driver before you sit down, even better, go with a tour and communicate your expectations but let them know. 2. Expect to eat something. It will save you arguing with the boat driver. Have the Thai fried rice. 3....More

To those who paid 2000 bath, you get a private motorised boat. If you get to the market itself ( a left turn and less than 1 km away) and park there, you can expect to pay 20 - 40 bath per person and get a nice... More
