What To Expect

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
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, they’re widely considered one of Bangkok’s 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.

Amazing Floating Market

We took a traditional long boat to the markets and got out upon arrival. The traditional means of selling local product was amazing. Great place to eat a traditional Thai meal made and served off of one of the boats. While very touristy, this added to the overall chaos. Watching the multitude of boats vying for space on the canals was very entertaining. Definitely recommend.
A Terrific Experience!!

An unforgettable adventure! First stop was to see how Palm Sugar is made and the family run place had many excellent handcrafts at good prices. Then the longtail boat trip through the floating markets was fantastic. An entirely different world! Highly recommend!!
Great Floating Market Trip

Seeing and learning how Coconut Sugar is processed from start to finished product.
The long boat ride to the Floating Market was a experience to see the old building on the water way. The small boats full of items to sell and the bartering going back and forth. Make sure to take small BHT notes as they seem to have a hard time making the change. Lots of 100 bills. LOL.

I would recommend this tour to everyone.
So much fun!

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
Nisha ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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
Good to try once!

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!
Damnoen Saduak floating market private trip

Arranging the trip was simple and the cost very competitive. Our private guide, Pearl was both friendly and knowledgeable. The length of the trip was just about right, with the part if the trip by (James Bond) long tail boat being the highlight
Floating Market is a must see if in the area

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.
