What You Can Expect

Floating Markets of Damnoen Saduak Cruise Day Trip from Bangkok

Explore the floating markets of Damnoen Saduak on your day trip from Bangkok
© Viator Inc.

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.

This is my second time to the floating markets, I really enjoyed it. The bus trip is always long but that can't be helped. There is a few stops along the way.

We enjoyed eating lunch there watching the boat traffic jam on the water. Very crowded. But fun.

I will do this tour again.

Nice shopping and food.

We had a great time on our tour. Our tour guide was funny, informative and he knew where to go at the market so we were never waiting in long lines to get in boats.
