Overview

Go beyond Bangkok city limits and gain a deeper understanding of life beyond the capital as you explore the floating markets of Damnoen Saduak. Travel by long-tailed speedboat as a guide unpacks the secrets of these 19th-century canals built by King Rama IV. Over the course this 6-hour day trip, you'll cruise past vendors selling freshly picked produce, handmade sweets and interesting souvenirs.
  • 6-hour day trip to the Damnoen Saduak floating markets from Bangkok
  • Take an exhilarating ride in a traditional Thai long-tailed speedboat
  • Discover ancient canal ways built by King Rama IV in the 19th-century
  • Explore the famous floating markets of Damneoen Saduak with your guide
  • Marvel at the varied produce for sale at the markets and perhaps make a purchase or two
  • Tour includes round-trip travel by air-conditioned coach from your Bangkok hotel
Meet your professional driver and local guide at your Bangkok hotel and travel in air-conditioned comfort to the Damnoen Saduak floating markets. Just two hours southwest of the capital, these famous markets were built by King Rama IV in the 19th century. Your guide will explain how this top attraction promotes trade outside Bangkok city limits and share stories about Thai cultures and traditions as you explore together.

Once you arrive at Damnoen Saduak, you’ll transfer to a long-tailed speedboat for a thrilling ride through marshes lined with stilt houses en route to the markets. Your guide will share information and answer any questions you have about what you're seeing along the way.

Comb through stalls of freshly picked produce, handmade sweets and colorful souvenirs. Witness local traders going about their daily routines and purchase items to take home. You can opt to take a trip on a local boat (additional cost) through a network of canals for an even closer look at these unique markets. 

Once you’ve finished at the markets, cruise back to your air-conditioned coach and travel back to your Bangkok hotel to relax after a truly memorable day in rural Thailand.

Great tour. Tourist trap but worth it. Watch out for the pythons can take pics with snakes.

It was a fun trip, the guide was great, could have skipped the orchid/coconut farm stop. There wasn't much there to see. I would have rather had that time at the market. It's worth it to take the smaller boat once you get off the long tail boat. You won't get the full experience of the floating market if you skip that. It's fun being in the middle of all the action, and the shopping is better. It's an early morning trip and you're back to your hotel before noon, so you still have plenty of time to see other sights.

You're essentially paying for transportation to the floating markets. You have to pay additional money to take a small boat to tour the actual floating shops.

I couldn’t have asked for a better Tour Guide. Peter was very humorous and knowledgeable throughout the entire tour. He also picked up my group and I on time and that was great. The trip to the floating market was quiet and beautiful because of the scenery. Definitely a must when going to Bangkok!

Damneon Saduak was a little disappointing as it is exceptionally touristy and this is coming from someone who really enjoys doing touristy things. Things were really packed and the reality looked a lot different than the pictures I had seen. Would aim for another market if possible.
