Know More about this tour

Bangkok, Thailand's vibrant capital is one of the world's most exotic and colorful cities, is a unique blend of the traditional and ultra-modern. As fun as the city is, it is always a great idea to head towards the country side to experience the rural Thai culture as life can be remarkably different, and interesting. A trip to the Damnoen Saduak floating markets is a must-do activity for those wanting to catch a glimpse of everyday life in Thailand.

On this privately guided day trip from Bangkok to the Damnoen Saduak floating markets, situated 64 miles (104 kilometers) southwest of Bangkok, you will take an exhilarating ride through the marshes and stilt houses of Bangkok on a narrow, long-tailed speedboat towards the markets. Once you reach the markets your local Thai guide will ensure all your questions are answered and even assist those who may wish to take a ride on a local boat (optional extra, payable direct) through the maze of Thai style canoes laden with colorful fruits, vegetables, sweets and meats.

This is a very popular day-trip for many tourists to Thailand and subsequently many of the products for sale by the local vendors at the Damnoen Saduak floating markets today may not seem so authentically Thai.

    This was such a fun experience, our guide was absolutely wonderful and helped with translations at the market and was extremely knowledgeable about the history of thailand aling the way. She made it such a fun experience and took us to a few different place along the way and you can tell she cared about supporting the small businesses which since covid i really appreciated. Would definitely recommend 👌

    Unfortunately the market is very touristic and my guide was not prepared at all. She didn’t share any interesting story and her English was very poor. However she was a lovely person and very accomodating of my needs. The paddle boat is not included. Only the boat to get there. Too expensive and finished to hours earlier than expected. I guess also because I was alone with no group.

    The Tour East company give the wrong hotel location to the tour guild so we have to contact the tour guild to give them the correct hotel location. The tour was late 30 mins. On the tour, the tour guild don’t even talk to us ( we are on the private tour) so the tour is very boring. Waste of my time

    I was forced to pay extra for another boat to go into the floating market although it was advertised as floating market

    Our guide Nisha was the best ever - make sure to ask for her. And our driver was great as well. Nisha knows everything about everything, was so happy to be showing tourists around again after Covid and even bargained for us when we bought things so we didn’t get ripped off. She was amazing - highly recommend her

    I am not sure if this was the guide fault. The floating market is less than 50% as vibrant as it was, most of the stores are closed and you may end up being one of the 10 people at the market. If you are going for the experience I would skip this and watch a video. The coconut farm experience is just as stale. If you have only a few days in Bangkok you might want to try the train market or the River Kwai.

    Amazing guide Tum, she was great! Good at communication and made the experience very enjoyable. Would recommend.

    There were more tourists than market boats. It was a two hour drive each way from Bangkok for one hour visit to market

    Indeed a nice view! We enjoyed the tour but we were too hungry because it started late, the travel was long too! But in away its worth it! the Pork BBQ is still a top notch! Im not sure how many sticks my brother finished!

    Greetings, The tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. The driver was also very professional and safe. The trip to the Floating Market in the long boat was very fun. Once at the FM, we needed to pay for the paddle boat for a 1/2 ride through the channels. This was also very fun. For the price we paid for the tour, this should have been included and for a longer period.
