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.

Good to experience, expensive to buy!

We took a private taxi to get there. It was a bit far, around 4 hour drive in total, but thankfully out of the major traffic congestions. It's quite an experience but items are... read more

So I heard about floating markets, showed the taxi driver a picture of it from google, asked how much and he says 200 baht. Considering we're staying in the centre, it had to be close. He takes the highway and 30min later we got suspicious. He kept insisting it was very close. After 1 hour 45 minutes we arrive to... More

We took a private taxi to get there. It was a bit far, around 4 hour drive in total, but thankfully out of the major traffic congestions. It's quite an experience but items are too pricey. A lot of the same items can be found for much cheaper in BKK (e.g.: Chatuchak weekend market...)

3000 bahts for a 1.5hr boat!!!! Is a tourist trap. Very expensive for a average market. All stuff is excactly the same as you can find in a market in Bangkok. The positive experience is just to do it by boat. The private car from the hotel 2000 bahts so this was the most expensive program during out stay in... More

If you are visiting Bangkok then the floating market is a "must do" and Damnoen Saduak is the most renowned floating market in Thailand. If you are expecting for an authentic thai experience, you will be dissapointed because everything is very touristic around there, but still a very interesting experience. In the same tour you can visit the famous train... More

Pretty much any form of transportation will take you there for free (coming from Amphawa) or a reasonable price if coming from Bangkok, but when you get there is when the "reasonable" disappears. When you get out of the car, taxi, bus etc. you are hounded by touts trying to tell you the only way to get to the market... More

This was our last day on our 10 day Thailand vacation and the biggest disappointment. Most expensive market of our whole trip. The boat jetty was so overpriced. We (stupidly) paid 5,000 baht for the local, major market, the temple and the brown sugar farm. What a joke. Ok, so the brown sugar farm was nothing. We got out and... More

Go for DIY/walking tour instead, don't opt for this one! It is very commercialize and people pretend to live here but those are only props. The area is smelly and 95% of the trip you see people selling souvenirs whose prices are 5x higher than in the city markets. They charge 100 baht for Van from Bangkok to the floating... More

My gosh very terrible scam, we rode a bus and it entered a scam pier and we were not allowed to go out of the compound. They will force you to get the boat inside the compound and the girl talking to us is sooo rude. They said 3K baht per person until we ended in 600 per pax. I... More
