What You Can Expect

Floating Markets 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.

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!

The ride in the speeding long tail boat is exciting and watching the crowd around the boats with produces and other products is fun. Our guide wa very helpful.

Although it's a heavy tourist spot.. you're a tourist if you're on viator.com, so go in with that mindset and you'll greatly enjoy it. The speedboat ride was very fun/relaxing and the floating market itself was cool to see. Tip: don't buy anything while you're floating along the river. Instead, buy items when you get off the boat and are able to walk through. This will give you more time to bargain and get greater discounts.

As many others mention, the Damnoen Saduak floating market is really more for tourist than for locals. But if you go to Thailand and not experience this market, then you are really missing out. The hustle and bustle add to the fun atmosphere, as does the haggling with the vendors. Plus, the food here is delicious!
