In the old days, rivers and canals (or “Khlong” in Thai) were very important for Thais. They served as daily commerce channel. Especially in Bangkok, early European visitors would call Bangkok’s water network the “Venice of the East” as it was a bustling main communication channel. Nowadays, Damnoen Saduak is one of the most famous floating markets in Thailand.

At the crack of dawn, people come to buy many kinds of fruits and vegetables sold at this Damnoen Saduak floating market on old-school wooden boats. As Damnoen Saduak gets more popular, sellers have come up with a huge variety of fresh produce, food and other local products.

TakeMeTour's Review

From a local point of view, Thai people don't actually go there that often anymore since it has become quite commercialized. That doesn't mean Damnoen Saduak floating market is not worth visiting. It is great for a traveler with limited time in Thailand as it is open everyday. The prices of food and drinks can be slightly pricey compared to other floating markets.
