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

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.

Unforgettable trip! My wife and I had a great day: it took a few hours to travel down, but that was a great opportunity to see the countryside outside the vast swathes of Bangkok: salt farms and paddy fields etc etc. Our guide was very informative.
And the high speed longtail boat ride down the canals to the market was absolutely exhilarating!
I would agree with other reviews that the optional boat tour around the market is also well worth it.
OK - the markets are touristy, and very crowded, and the goods can be got much cheaper elsewhere - but the whole atmosphere,the colours, sounds and smells made it a great trip.
And the early start meant a relatively early finish - I think we were back in the hotel by 2pm, so were able to pack a few more things in to the day or you could ask to be dropped in the city, if you wanted.
Great tour - highly recommended.

Very interesting. To bad about the polluted water!

Very enjoyable experience. Would recommend doing the optional boat tour through the markets as you also have time later to walk through the markets if you want more time to purchase items. It does take a couple of hours to get to the markets from Bangkok hence why it is an early morning start. Would recommend this tour.
