Damnoen Saduak Floating Market



NileGuide Expert Says:

Don't be shocked when you discover your romanticized vision of the floating market is not real. Tourism has led to some high prices and hokey souvenir options. That said, the experience certainly still evokes times passed and is a worthwhile excursion.

Description:

For a taste of Thailand's past, head to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Ratchaburi province, about 110 kilometers west of Bangkok. Houses on stilts stand above vendors paddling boats around canals, evoking what once was the daily commerce routine throughout much more of Bangkok. Within this marketplace, visitors can purchase fruits, vegetables, mementos and souvenirs. Many tour operators can arrange an early morning trip to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, lessening the logistical burden. But for a cheaper, more do-it-yourself avenue, travelers can book buses from the Southern Bus Terminal.
