Overview

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.

The floating market is worth a visit. It is colourfull and amazing to see what people can cook and sell on tiny boats. Try phad Thai, chicken skewers or coconut ice cream while relaxing at the side or in one of the rental boats.

But don’t do a tour all the way from Bangkok. Find a neat little place to stay, preferably on the water nearby. Then you can relax and catch a boat to the market the next day. This will totally change your opinion of the setting...More

Don't go there, go to amphawa instead. The private taxi drivers might be reasonably priced but they will take you to outside piers that scam over thousands of baht for a single boat.

It’s gross, it’s expensive (1,500 baht per person) to get in the market, it’s nasty and most of the merchandise is old and the same in most stands. The river is disgusting and all of the vendors overprice their stuff which even after negotiating was...More

We drove out to the market with a hired car and arrived at the trap only to be told that the boats were going to cost us 2000 baht each! We were aghast! It was $236 CAD for the two hour trip around the canals!...More

Yes, perhaps it is a bit touristy but this was our first trip to Thailand and this market was part of a package deal we did with a tour company on an impulse. Sure, it was a little crowded and full of tourists but it...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
