Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Floating Markets of Damnoen Saduak Cruise Day Trip from Bangkok. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Despite people complaining that the floating market is not authentic enough, I found this to be an overall lovely tour. We had a quick stop at the coconut plantation nearby first, and then a sweet ride on a small wooden boat up the river to the market, where we had ample time to walk around and explore. Our guide Mrs. Pearl was very efficient, knowledgeable, and good company. Generally, I had a great time and would recommend this tour.
This is a must do' on your trip to Bangkok, Thailand. The floating market is an experience. I highly recommend taking a the James Bond boat into the market then take the manual paddle boat, to go through the actual market. Two things that I highly recommend you try, the coconut ice cream and the sticky rice and manago. It was delicious!
The markets were fantastic! A really unique experience. There was a lot of travel for a relatively short time there but it was worth it
Absolutely awesome boy was a great tour guide, informative, funny, helpful and easy to understand! Would thoroughly recommend this tour and your company!
Our tour guide was friendly and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the elephant ride and the amount of time allowed for the market visit was ample. A very good tour.
We really enjoyed this trip and experiencing local culture. Tour guide was very informative.
Great tour. A must if you are goibg to Bangkok. Peter the guide was very friendly.
Good to get out of the city and see something different. Boat ride down the canals excellent. Well worth the time.
This was a great tour with a super charged guide. We got more than expected. Stopped at coconut place this was really good and the orchids that was enroute then the floating markets better than expected., After to see your choice of elephant tour or monkeys. It was a fun and exciting tour with plenty of picture opportunities and I rate it at the top. Thank you for your help in providing the possibility
This tour is brilliant and would totally recommend this to anyone visiting Bangkok. Such a laugh and a real cultural experience
This was a interesting tour. The floating market is amazing and a stop at a coconut processing market was an added plus. Our guide was knowledgeable and very friendly.
The tour company was very efficient phoning us day before confirming time of pick-up for the tour.
We had a wonderful start to our holiday with this trip. The guide was informative and funny. Although it was a very touristy and busy place we felt like we had experienced a special part of Thai life for those in this area. We were very pleased to have booked the trip through Viator. They are very well organised and kept excellent contact. Thanks
My tour was amazing... I had the best tour guide... Her name is yellie and she is the best ... My experience in Bangkok would not have been the same if it wasn't for her......I highly recommend...
An absolutely amazing trip. This tour gives you a true idea of the day to day life around Bangkok and gives you a chance to be part of that experience. Our guide gave a great commentary during the trip. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting Bangkok.
The entire tour, from the hotel pick-up, the 1.5-hour journey to Damnoen Saduak and back was a breeze. It's good to start early as the during a weekend as the crowd hasn't built up yet when we arrived at the market. Bargain for goods and foods in any part of the floating market is a must! Never give in to opening prices as this is a touristy site. The tour guide was attentive to us throughout the journey. It was quite an interesting experience for me, and a must-see, as the floating market is quite unique to Bangkok. Also visited coconut processing factory and wood factory.
Floating market now more of a tourist attraction than a real market but the tour was fun and the guide very informative. Various stops to and from the market broke up the long ride nicely and provided some insight into how Thai's use coconut and some expert woodworking shops. Enjoyed the tour and finally got to see Thailand's floating markets.
They were on time (actually 10 minutes early) to my hotel, great guide - friendly and funny.
The guide was awesome and gave us great insight into the local area/culture. The bus was air conditioned (as promised) and super comfortable to take a nap in on the way back from the tour.
Be prepared to interact with pushy sales people on the tour! They will literally put products into your hands to get you interested in buying but for some of the items, you can't beat the price. Make sure to negotiate which is a part of the fun.
The food was incredible and hard to believe it came from a small boat. Amazing fresh fruit too.
Great experience and well worth the cost (which was a lot lower than the tour our hotel was trying to book us on!) Would highly recommend this tour.
*Went on the tour on April 18th- pickup from W Bangkok Hotel.
Another mind blowing experience. Quite a long trip from Bangkok but worth it. The longtail boat to get to the market was amazing and when you get to the actual floating market it was everything I hoped for and more. You can buy your lunch when on the slower second boat going through the stalls. Cost 40 bahts for a bowl of noodles with chicken etc. Also huge market on canal bank where you can walk through afterwards.
