Owner description: 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.

“A must see attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

This is one of the best outings around Bangkok. To experience a trip through the floating market by paddle boat is absolutely fantastic. The canals are crowded with boats and it is fascinating to see how they negotiate their boats through these crowded canals. You also get to experience the vendors trying to sell their goods and you also see the locals going about their day to day activities. I would suggest that this trip be a must for anyone visiting Bangkok.

“Unique experience”

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is indeed a picturesque scene of a lively and colorful market with local vendors actively selling fruits, foods, vegetable, local souvenirs and products on different sizes of rowing boats.

“The Original”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Got Conned into paying 1800 Baht for 6 pax when it is 1200 Only , so beware , it is 200 baht per person ! This is the original Floating Market ! It was packed and jammed with boats when I visited ! Oh , by the way , you need extreme bargaining skills here ! You need to lop 70 - 80% off the asking prices , that is how much they mark up ! Anyway , the things on sale here are available is most other tourist places !

“Tourist Ripped Off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Travelled 2 hours from Bangkok city to here, quoted 1000Baht per person. Reading reviews from other travellers and noticed they give inconsistent pricing. When they charge 1000Baht per person, I told them we are gonna leave and we are not paying the price. One of them came up to me and said 600Baht after that. Bear in mind I have 12 people together with me so they really dont wanna lose this business, I negotiate until 400Baht per person and they agreed.

Definitely not worth 1000-1500 Baht for the boat ride, too touristy. Good experience tho.
