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.

Researched about the floating markets before heading over to Bangkok. I and my partner agreed that the safest way is to book a tour before hand. We booked our tour package through Klook, which cost 30 SGD per person. The market is located an hour...More

Dirty , filthy and very polluted. The canal is disgusting. Overpriced for nothing in return. The market is very touristy and four times the price. A complete waste of time and money. Don't bother.

To cut the below review short two tips: Make sure you go to the correct pier and take a photo of the official sign with the price for a boat. I was reluctant to visit Damneon Saduak but thought it could break up our journey...More

A good experience for those who have never been before. Waterways were terribly jammed due to weekend. Good food from vendors in boats but bad quality souvenirs from their riverside stalls.

The floating markets are a great thing to experience in Thailand. That being said, it is definitely a tourist trap as well. It is fun getting guided through the floating market, but everything is marked up in price. They wanted to sell a beer for...More

I expected to buy fruits and vegetables from the long boat. What is done is that you go to the pier where you come off and many stores that are touristy and are trinkets, shoes, clothes, etc. Not many places selling fruits and vegetables as...More

Unusual, nice, lively, authentic, a must see in Bangkok however as most places in Thailand it is also very touristic. Crowded with tourists and shops for tourists, everyone is trying to sell you something. We went there through a tour organised by Asia discovery their...More

If you visit Bangkok as a tourist you would feel missing something if you skip the floating markets. But unfortunately, it's only a tourist event nowadays, nothing more. So if you're strong enough, you can skip it :)

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
