Floating Markets Day Trip from Bangkok

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Visit the Biggest Floating Market of Thailand in a half a day tour.

Take this tour to get a glimpse of everyday life on the water in Thailand. Cruise along the Bangkok canals in a narrow, long-tailed motorized boat towards the Damnoen Saduak floating market, where you will see local vendors in their Thai style canoes, laden with colorful fruits, and vegetables, gently plying their way through the canals looking to sell their goods.
  • Take a hassle-free day trip to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market from Bangkok
  • Travel by efficient long-tailed speed boat to save time
  • Receive information crucial to understanding the exotic products on offer
  • Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off are included with this guided tour
What to Expect
Your day trip begins with pickup from your Bangkok hotel, where you’ll board a vehicle destined for Damnoen Saduak. Upon arrival, you’ll transfer to a long-tailed boat and speed through marshes and past atmospheric stilt houses. En route you’ll receive a comprehensive introduction to the culture and history of the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Cruise past floating stalls selling fresh produce and exotic fruits while your guide explains the origin and use of particularly unique ingredients along the way. For an additional cost, you can purchase souvenirs and opt to take a ride on a local boat. After sufficient exploration of the market, return to your Bangkok hotel via boat and bus, with a stop at a coconut candy farm for a taste.

We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the market and it was wasted of your time. I'd then suggest you to visit more like historical places such as the ruins in Ayuttaya or River Kwai Bridge in Kanchanaburi. More beautiful, relax and clean.
