Half-Day Tour of Damneon Saduak Floating Market from Bangkok
The Damnern Saduak floating market is actually a combination of 3 different markets. The principal market is at Ton Khem. Merchants paddle their small boats piled high with fresh fruit and vegetables along the crowded, narrow canal, offering their goods to buyers standing along the banks of the canal. The canal is lined with food stalls and souvenir shops. If you’d like to buy souvenirs from the shops here, remember that bargaining is expected.
Be taken back to your hotel afterward.

An experience well worth seeing , but the canal boat trip was just on and off and too crowded to enjoy. The local markets are good , and the journey enjoyable and an opportunity to see outside Bangkok.
Thoroughly enjoyed thiis, our guide was superb . Turned out to be our guide ,driver and just the two of us so very comfortable. The market is completely tourist driven as opposed to being a genuine 'local' market but that did not disappoint. Great atmosphere in this floating traffic jam . Tic tac twixt boat driver and vendors is amazing . If you look interested in anything they will take the boat back to the stall. Be prepared for some quick bartering and you have to be firm , but polite, if it is something you do not want. Our guide was very helpful re appropriate tips and where to start the bartering process. We did feel peckish for a couple of bananas and ended up with a massive bunch. Still they were very nice.
The market itself is full of tourist tat but go for the experience especially if you enjoy photography. Stopped at the railway market on route. Very interesting if you enjoy a good food market. Also stopped at a plantation which was interesting but a little too long.
Excellent tour. Loved the Floating Market. We had a wonderful time sailing down the river to the market. Plenty of time to look around and didn't feel rushed. Mindy, our guide, was very good at explaining things and extremely sweet. The side trip to learn more about coconuts was also excellent. Recommended.
