Private Tour: Floating Markets of Damnoen Saduak Cruise Day Trip from Bangkok

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Take a private tour to get a glimpse of everyday life on the water in Thailand. Cruise along the Bangkok canals in a narrow, long-tailed motorized boat towards the Damnoen Saduak floating market, where you will see local vendors in their Thai style canoes, laden with colorful fruits, and vegetables, gently plying their way through the canals looking to sell their goods.
  • Watch local vendors selling fresh vegetables and more from long canoes
  • Practice your bargaining skills and purchase items at the floating market
  • Travel by private car and boat to the floating market
  • Get a personalized experience of rural Thailand with a private guide
What to Expect
Start early with morning pickup from centrally located Bangkok hotels by a private air-conditioned vehicle. Travel with your private guide southwest for about 64 miles (103 kilometers), passing through the rural countryside on your way to the waterways that lead to Damnoen Saduak floating market. Transfer to a longtail speedboat for a ride through marshes lined with traditional houses on stilts. Listen to your guide’s commentary about the traditions and history of the region along the way. Upon arrival at the market, you can walk around on the banks to observe the action, or get a closer look by hiring a local boat (additional expense) to take you through the throngs of vendor canoes. See narrow boats that are piled with fresh produce, household goods, and tourist souvenirs. Your tour ends with return transport to Bangkok.

We did this tour with Gift our guide. Private pick up and journey to the markets. A fast speed boat into the markets which was brilliant fun and like something out of James Bond! Then we paid extra to get a row boat round the markets. Really good experience and glad we did it!

Left at 7:30am for a 70 mile trip one way bus trip. This bus took us to an area full of other busses and dropped us off at a dock full of large engined canoes. These long boats flew through some mangroves and canals that were full of trash. Floating Market had some yummy

It is good with children for different experiences, but not very an entertainment for adults. basically, it's selling holiday stuff. Kids liked the boat trip more than the market itself. Anyway, you still can go there.
