Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

Having now been replaced by supermarkets and shopping malls, Thailand's remaining floating markets are an enduring symbol of what life was like in days gone by.

The popular floating market in Ratchaburi, known as Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, is one of Thailand’s largest. Sellers arrive early in their boats laden with tropical fruits, flowers and other fresh produce, creating an exuberant and vividly colorful scene that has been captured by photographers the world over.

It's a touristy scene but worth the crowds in order to experience this unique and infectiously chaotic market. Hire a long-tail boat and make sure you bring your camera to capture this quintessential image of Thailand. It is also worthwhile exploring the nearby canals (klongs) to gain an appreciation of how the locals live.

It’s best to take a trip early in the morning to see the market at its busiest and most colorful. Many people who visit the market combine the trip with a tour to the Rose Garden cultural resort, 32 km (20 mi) west of Bangkok and/or to Nakhon Pathom, the site of the largest pagoda (and highest Chedi) in Thailand.

Practical Info

The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is 110 km (68 mi) west of Bangkok, in Ratchaburi province and about 40 minutes by car to Nakhon Pathom.
