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
Very colorful market of various stalls on the shore of the canal accessible from boat or land. Many different shops to choose from. Everything from silks and fabrics to food to hand crafted items. Be prepared to be pulled into multiple stalls by the market folk. They are very nice however and not overbearing. Haggle for everything, it's the culture. They don't feel good about the sale if you don't negotiate down. Enjoy!
Offers an authentic taste of old markets of Thailand. Prices over there are relatively higher than Bangkok. It is highly advised to bargain a lot or to check the prices in Bangkok before going there. Have some cash handy as credit card is very scarce. If you are into trying exotic cuisines, sticky rice and mango, coconut ice cream and fresh fruits are highly recommended. People don't ask for tips but they highly appreciate it if you give them tips.
It's a busy busy place. Plenty of spices and souvenirs. Try your skill in bargaining. Major entertainment seeing firsthand boat traffic in this narrow canal. There are also boat which sells food n drinks along the canal. Require about 3/4 hours to discover and enjoy this location.
Wow. Biggest rip off ever. Cons 1. If you come here make sure you get on boat without an engine. They wanted s to charge me 2,500 Thai bah, I had to get a taxi driver involved to have them talked down to a 1,000 and even then come to find out it only 300 bha for ride from someone that don’t have an engine in their both. 2. If you are taken by route with almost no market. Do not ! Buy anything (just yet) they will try you buy stuff at crazy high price. Wait until you get to the real market( trust me you will be able to tell the difference. 3. Keep your Thai bah currency converter open at all times. In case you think something is cheap but it really isn’t. I was almost fooled into buying a can of soda for $2 because they gave the bah price (nothing wrong with that). Keep in mind how much something is really worth before you consider buying Pros 1. Cool pictures
Lots to see! lots to buy! lots to eat! definitely a fun outing just super far depending on where you coming from. If you are not a snake fan like myself you wont enjoy the snake show. Basically huge snakes chilling on a table waiting for their turn 😣😣😣.
