Know More about this tour

Following a morning pickup from your Bangkok city hotel (except non refundable rate) meet your guide and travel out by air-conditioned coach to the Damnoen Saduak floating markets. Located a 2-hour drive southwest of Bangkok, the markets sit on a canal waterway created by King Rama IV in the 19th century to promote trade and development outside the capital. Today, theyre widely considered one of Bangkoks top attractions and offer valuable insight into traditional Thai culture and traditions.

On arrival at Damnoen Saduak, hop aboard a long-tailed speedboat with your guide for an exciting ride through the marshes and stilt-houses to the markets. Once there, listen to a brief introduction from your guide and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Marvel at the colorful fruits, vegetables, sweets, meats and souvenirs on display and take time to capture the market scenery on camera. Watch the traders and customers going about their daily business on this bustling and vibrant part of the canal, and perhaps purchase some fruit or souvenirs for yourself (own expense). Take a ride on a local boat (optional extra, payable locally) through the maze of traditional canoes and soak up the market atmosphere out on the water.

When your time at the Damnoen Saduak floating markets is up, cruise back to your coach and hop back aboard for the return journey to your Bangkok, where your tour will come to an end.

    It is a very long way to go for not an overly authentic experience. Best part was the boat ride to the market. Coconut farm was not enjoyable. Food at floating markets was good. 4 hours in a minibus was a bit of a waste of a time

    Our tour guide was very good. She was very informative and attentive. Only issue we had with the tour is that we had to wait about 30-45 minutes on the side of the highway for 2 passengers. The floating markets is a nice experience, the bus was clean and the commute was quick.

    Awesome experience! Very nice and friendly guide. It's a one in a lifetime experience. The food is very good too.

    Decent enough short day but just another Thai/Chinese market really. Boat trip is good. The boats float; the market's on firm ground!

    Our guide was pretty quiet on the long ride to the floating markets. I like when guides share the country history and information about where we are driving as we go. Also the floating market was a lot more touristy than I expected. My advice would be to skip the boat ride (they literally take you only thru the souvenir area and go so slow that 2 turns takes the whole 30 minutes). Instead walk to the left, toward the start of the floating market and experience more of the market aspect rather than the tourism one.

    Do not buy this tour. First: you spend all day sitting in the traffic.
    Second: They give you transportation to the market. You have to pay for the boat to see the market.
    Do not waste your money. This tour is rip-off.

    Early morning start but bus broke down so couldn't be picked up from our hotel so was contacted and requested to catch a cab across town. That was all good and I was reimbursed for the taxi ride. Nice driver and tour guide. Enjoyable at the market, variety of stalls, good food but a bit disappointed that a ride on one of the smaller boats in the market was an extra 200 baht. Did realise that but perhaps I was told when I first booked but couldn't remember. Worth going there though.

    the people was lovely and provide us many recomendations and additions to the trip. but I felt the floating market visit a little short. I t should last more
