Damnoen Saduak Floating Market - Review
Thailand’s floating markets are famous and something of a cultural symbol so a trip to a floating market is a must on any sightseeing tour to Bangkok, Thailand. At Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, you will find many souvenirs and trinkets. The vibrant colours and smells are sure to fascinate anyone and everyone. It makes sense to try and purchase some handicrafts, flowers or fresh produce and maybe even haggle as these too are a part of this market experience. A boat needs to be taken through the canals where it is possible to float up to the other boats and market stalls that sell a variety of things. This market is often crowded with tourists however. But since it is the ultimate touristic experience, the crowd can be forgotten and the place is quite enjoyable.
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is one of the attractions added in Bangkok itinerary 3 days. Must visit this awesome attraction.

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Bangkok Reviews
This place deserves a better mark, but it is the case that this floating market is very tourist oriented. It is beautiful with some really great food, I ate boat noodle here that was mind blowing. The reason why this market gets three stars from me is that you have to be very careful about what vendors you deal with. Most are just beautiful people who genuinely care and are not trying to short you. However if you rent a boat for a tour they invariably stop (for 10 minutes - you get off) at one shop where you will encounter very nice merchandise, all have stickers with no associated prices. If you don't speak Thai some vendors here will attempt to take advantage of you, so be very careful. The lady i speak of specifically must have mistaken my Thai girlfriend for a Chinese girl, and when she tried to overcharge me for some chopsticks my girlfriend called her out. You may not be so lucky to have a Thai person with you, just be vigilant and you will have a good experience here.
BEST AUTHENTIC FLOATING MARKET: I've lived in Bangkok for three years and this is absolutely the best place in Thailand to see and feel how things use to be. It's a fairly good trip out of Bangkok but certainly well worth the hour or so travel time. There are other floating markets, but definitely, nothing else compares and it's affordable too. The prices seem little different than most other places outside the city to me. If you want to see Old School Thailand, you definitely want to put this place on your list. The photographs are just a teaser. It's much better in person, with an honest, natural vibe you'll never forget.
It is about 1.5 hours away from Bangkok depending on the traffic. If you just want to say you have been here, that's fine. It'll cost you $100 to get a nice sized covered boat with a motor. They have many markets and vendors of goods, but all have the same stuff really. Also, the prices are about 4x what you'd pay in town. The temple is nice and the animal park close by is nice. Wasn't worth it to me just because of the distance and tourist trap prices. There are just as many nice markets with the same stuff in Bangkok for much less.
Fun experience! Book through a tour, so you don't have to pay for both an expensive travel fare (1.5 hours from Bangkok) AND an entrance fee. Pay 150 baht/person to experience the floating market on a long-tailed boat, or, as I prefer, save the money and just walk around. You have access to the same vendors and more by just walking around, while getting more coverage from the rain and being able to sit and eat on solid ground. Don't buy souvenirs here. Go to a night market in the big cities (Chiang Mai, Bangkok, etc.) instead.
This is a floating market in Thailand. If you've never been to a floating market, you purchase a ticket to get on the boats and then they take you through the many different shops while on the boat. If at anytime you see something you like, you just indicate to the helmsman and they will get you closer to the shop to explore. In my experience, you are able to bargain just a bit when purchasing items, but you get a better chance if you purchase more stuff. Don't expect to get something half off. This place also has shops outside of the boating area, so even if you missed something, you can probably find it again. Sometimes the fumes from the other motorboats will creep into your nose. Bathrooms available. Small fee to enter.
