Damnern Saduak Floating Market

One of the most popular Bangkok experiences, enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of the famous Damnern Saduak Floating Market where you will find hundreds of Thai style canoes laden with fruits, vegetables, sweets and meats.

High on the list of most Thailand visitors' things to do, Damnern Saduak Floating Market is a truly colourful experience. Situated 60 miles from Bangkok, the seemingly chaotic canals or 'khlongs' are filled with flat boats piled high with fresh produce, each jockeying for position and paddled by ladies ready to stop and bargain at a moment's notice.

Your journey to the market includes an exciting long tail speed-boat ride through the marshes, past traditional stilt houses and scenes that have changed little over the centuries. As you speed across the water, your experienced English-speaking guide will provide a colourful overview of the market and what to expect when you arrive.

There is plenty of free time to explore this hive of activity and your guide will be happy to arrange a local boat ride through the markets (optional extra) should you wish to get closer to the vendors.
