About
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.

Fun, Exciting, Crowded and Touristy
Mar. 2020 • Solo
I stopped at this floating market, one of the last ones of it's kind, on my way to Kanchana Buri. It was very crowded with tourist and also with vendors. I walked around and took many photos of all the vendors floating on the canal, selling their food and vegetables. The sounds, sights and smells where amazing! I just loved sampling all the food and seeing the vendors. I had fried banana called Gluay Kaek which was delicious! It was a wonderful stop along the way to the River Kwai and I spent about 2 hours there, which was just enough time! Great for photo opportunities and shopping!

BEST FLOATING MARKETS IN THAILAND
Oct. 2019 • Couples
Damnoen Saduak has been Thailand's best known floating market for a very long time, but that also makes it one of the most touristy ones. It's huge, lively, full of boats selling food and fruits, and it's colourful – exactly how people imagine a floating market would look like, with the opportunity to capture the perfect photo to show off once back home. It's also about 100 km away from Bangkok and, being a victim of its own success, it often seems to lack the authentic atmosphere, feeling more like a theme park than a real local market.

Busy Floating market
Sep. 2019 • Solo
During my vacation in Bangkok, I had visited the popular Damnoen Saduak Floating market. I didn't go inside the market in a long tail boat which usually costs around 2000 baht instead the car dropped me at a pier from where I got paddle boat for 300 baht. The 30 minute ride was quite an experience passing through shops selling souvenirs on both sides of the canal. There were vendor boats on the water selling coconut ice cream, fruits, non veg food and more. The water is not clean and the motor boats passing by created lot of pollution. I have 20 baht tip to the old boatman at the end of my trip.

Nice floating market and boat ride
Sep. 2019
Interesting boat ride into the floating market and around the housing area that are built on top of the water.

Not for those with seasickness.

Must visit when in Bangkok City
Jan. 2020 • Solo
An experience not to be missed if visiting Bangkok city. Interesting especially the Train Market, how the peddlers by the train tracks coordinated their goods as soon as the train arrives. Damnoen Saduk’s Floating Market is equally interesting, we went due peak hours and there were paddle boats and motorboats congestion within the rivers.

Amazing local market
Dec. 2019 • Couples
The boat ride out to the market itself was quite relaxing and peaceful. You really get to see how the people live/farm. Once you get there, it can be very crowded with tourists, but nobody hounds you to buy anything, which we appreciated. Lots of local foods/produce and amazing team wood sculptures and furniture. Definitely recommend visiting!

Half day trip to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
Aug. 2019
Visited Damnoen Saduak as part of a half day Train Market and Floating market Tour by Amazing Asia Tours (Can highly recommend this company if you want a good private tour). The market is very lively, a lot of items for sale, very busy and commercialized. Definitely a fun first-time experience but definitely more of a tourist trap than a genuine floating market used by locals. Make sure to bargain, and you might return home with some pretty beautiful Thai souvenirs.

I highly recommend trying out the desserts, such as coconut ice cream and mango with sticky rice.

Great fun!
Aug. 2019
Damnoen Saduak is the Original Floating Market in Thailand.
It's a great idea to visit the market for a half day tour, over an hour drive from Bangkok.
The market is unique and very interesting. Local shops sell almost the same items. Floating food boats are fun, should try some of the local item such as coconut Ice cream.
The only drawback of any tourist spots is it's too commercialised.
