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.

Beware of scammers! Our taxi driver lured us to take a ride with him stating the return drive from Central Bangkok would be 1000 Baht..I suspected some foul play when he took a U turn when we were 2km away from Damnoen Market..when I questioned him, he stated cars are not allowed to go near the market and he is taking us to the place where the boat ride begins. When we reached the place, it looked like a perfect set up. 2 women came running to us and welcomed us and took us to a made up office where she showed us a map where we would be taken through the canal. When I asked her the price, she stated 10,000 baht for 2 adults and my 2 year old!!

I instantly knew this was a scam..thanks to a comment posted by another reviewer. I told my husband this is definitely a scam and we should walk away. Our driver started getting restless and yelling at us saying this is the price to do the tour and we would have to walk 2km in the heat with our toddler. I was even more upset and said we will manage and insisted he dropped us to the market upon which he started threatening us in a loud voice saying "listen to me, this is the price".We kept insisting he dropped us to the market and he finally was left with no choice. I am so glad we made this decision as the actual price was 400 baht per boat and the people at the canal were kind and nice unlike our rude and unethical driver.

We were 4 persons, and had to pay 3000 baht per person for the boat trip, in total 12000 baht. Not worth to see, only cheap souvenirs to buy. And then 4000 baht for village and elephanrs, a total of 16000 bahts. My son is paralyzed from chest down and use a wheelchair, not easy to travel. And yet they scammed us, sad and heartbreaking.😢

Still very quiet from the Covid 19. Not a lot of shops opened. Nothing much to do there. Hope it was better.

There are many things to eat and live like an ancient person. There are many things to choose from and a good atmosphere. There is a boat ride on the Mae Klong River. It's a good day. There is a chance to go back to travel again.

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market It is considered an old market. Ratchaburi and is a famous tourist attraction There are uninterrupted tourists. The charm of this place is Boat ride on both sides boating Merchant's loveliness There are many food options here. Both freshly cooked products, fruits, souvenirs, clothes that shine, are sold on land. and selling boats in the canal If you want to take a leisurely walk, you should only go in around 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM. because at this time, few people walk to watch shopping for comfort if it's later than this There are many tourists, both Thai and foreign.

Long drive from Bangkok on the premise “50% open very good”… payed an extortionate 2000baht for the boat (only option available to us… also 400baht more than my flight to Cambodia for reference of how ridiculous price is) yet more people promise 40% open 50% open… here’s the reality… 5% open maximum, and every single one is a tourist shop selling the same souvenirs. We passed one boat cooking food in an hour. The least authentic experience we have had in Bangkok frankly. We’d be less annoyed if people were more honest, and we’d made the choice to go based off fact. You’re hardly going to impress tourists with deceit and extortionate prices

This was a two hour car trip from central Bangkok. And more than two hours back in traffic. I sensed the market was a shadow of its former self and it seemed there were more tourist boats than market boats. Nothing like the jostling of boats one sees in advertising material !

The fun bit was a high speed long tail boat ride down one of the canals to get there

We had an interesting stop at a coconut farm en route.

Overall I would say a 1 1/2 hour long tail boat cruise in Bangkok is just as much fun

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market It's a good place to visit with lots of food, delicious, clean place, lots of things to choose from. Suitable for going on vacation. If you are going to travel, it is recommended to go on weekdays, there are not many people. If going on weekends and holidays, there will be a lot of tourists, especially foreigners.
