Floating Markets Day Trip from Bangkok
From US$46.14
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
Experience authentic Thai culture on a Damnoen Saduak Floating Market day trip from Bangkok. Unlike other Damnoen Saduak tours, this experience includes an exhilarating ride on a long-tailed speed boat, which transports you to the rural location with efficiency and ease. A guide reveals essential information about the market’s history and produce, and teaches you Thai phrases that help you interact with locals. Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off are also included.
What to Expect
Your day trip begins with pickup from your Bangkok hotel, where you’ll board a vehicle destined for Damnoen Saduak. Upon arrival, you’ll transfer to a long-tailed boat and speed through marshes and past atmospheric stilt houses. En route you’ll receive a comprehensive introduction to the culture and history of the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.
Cruise past floating stalls selling fresh produce and exotic fruits while your guide explains the origin and use of particularly unique ingredients along the way. For an additional cost, you can purchase souvenirs and opt to take a ride on a local boat.
After sufficient exploration of the market, return to your Bangkok hotel via boat and bus, with a stop at a coconut candy farm for a taste.

Thank you for your valuable review. When you mentioned "the guy" meaning "guide" ? If you can clarify more details such as your real name, date / time would help us investigate quicker. We are sorry for your disappointment

Thank you very much for your review. Because this floating market is not far from Bangkok that's why it became famous in the past years as local activities. We hope you enjoyed your day.

If I can remember correctly, the boat ride was around 300 THB which is equivalent to $13 AUD.
