Floating Markets Day Trip from Bangkok
From US$45.27
Overview
Experience authentic Thai culture on a Damnoen Saduak Floating Market day trip from Bangkok. Unlike other Damnoen Saduak tours, this experience includes an exhilarating ride on a long-tailed speed boat, which transports you to the rural location with efficiency and ease. A guide reveals essential information about the market’s history and produce, and teaches you Thai phrases that help you interact with locals. Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off are also included.
What to Expect

Your day trip begins with pickup from your Bangkok hotel, where you’ll board a vehicle destined for Damnoen Saduak. Upon arrival, you’ll transfer to a long-tailed boat and speed through marshes and past atmospheric stilt houses. En route you’ll receive a comprehensive introduction to the culture and history of the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.

Cruise past floating stalls selling fresh produce and exotic fruits while your guide explains the origin and use of particularly unique ingredients along the way. For an additional cost, you can purchase souvenirs and opt to take a ride on a local boat.

After sufficient exploration of the market, return to your Bangkok hotel via boat and bus.

Interesting floating market and temple. Wares a tad over priced

At only 60 - 90 mins from downtown Bangkok, it was a great morning excursion. Most tours do NOT include the price of the boat tour (2000 Bt per person) and the souvenirs etc are really overpriced so hold off on any heavy buying until...More

You’re paying for a bus ride

What you’re really paying for is transportation there and back as nothing else is included. Our tour guide was friendly, but overall, the tour felt like an extended sales pitch. We stopped by a dubious “coconut farm” before reaching the floating market, and it was...More

Give it a very wide berth!

Total disappointment. Boy racer in tiny waterways. Way too many boats and consequently toxic diesel fumes in abundance. I took a private taxi and I was charges 2000 baht as I was a foreigner.

Try not to go to the floating market on a weekend, I went on a Sunday and it was crazy busy, I would go during the week so you get a more enjoyable experience.
