Private Tour: Floating Markets of Damnoen Saduak Cruise Day Trip from Bangkok

Private Tour: Floating Markets of Damnoen Saduak Cruise Day Trip from Bangkok

Enjoy a private day tour of the floating markets of Damnoen Saduak and get a behind the scenes look at rural life that lies beyond Bangkok. Your expert guide will travel with you some 64 miles (104 kilometers) southwest of Bangkok, where you’ll board a long-tailed 
speedboat and take a thrilling ride through picturesque marshes doted with traditional stilt houses en route to the markets. Your friendly guide will answer all of your questions and share stories and insight into local life for people on the water.

Opt to get a closer look at the markets on a local boat (optional extra) through the network of canoes, piled high with fresh, vibrant produce. Be advised that since the markets are a popular stop for travelers looking to spend a day outside the city, some of the items for sale by local vendors may not seem authentically Thai, and instead geared towards out-of-towners.

Very interesting tour. Loved the ride on the river. The tour ended I what was nothing less than a tourist trap. Items I had already purchased in Bangkok were twice the price and more. Beware!

We had a great time. It was a perfect combination of the high-speed longtail boat ride and the slow paddled boat through the market. We had plenty of time to spend at each location of the guide was very good and shared a great deal of information with us

The guide and driver were great. The guide had lots of infomation along the way and the floating market is an amazing sight to see. The market is used to tons of tourists so be ready to bargain hard or you'll pay 2 to 4 times what you need to. If you pay asking price you might as well shop at the airport to get better prices. If you don't mind going back and forth you'll seen an amazing selection and can get some good values. We bought an amazing local painting and it's costing us more to frame it than it cost to buy it.

This is the tour my wife and I enjoyed the most when we where in Bangkok. We were picked up from the hotel on time. Our tour guide was very formative and he did an excellent job in introducing the floating market. He warned us about the local sellers so that we could buy a lot of souvenirs almost 1/5th of the price offered. It is a different experience and we highly recommend it.
