Damnoen Saduak Floating Market Tours

Damnoen Saduak is originally the canal name that was dug during the reign of King Rama IV. This canal was dug to join the Tha Chin River in Samut Sakhon Province and Maeklong River in Samut Songkhram Province together for more convenience in both commerce and transportation.

In the old days, rivers and canals (or “Khlong” in Thai) were very important for Thais. Not only they served as a daily commerce channel, but it was a bustling channel for transportation. Especially in Bangkok, early European visitors would call Bangkok “Venice of the East” for its extensive water network. 

Nowadays, Damnoen Saduak Floating Market 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 the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market on old-school wooden boats. As Damnoen Saduak Floating Market gets more popular, vendors have come up with a huge variety of fresh produce, food and other local products. We recommend everyone to come to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in the early morning to see what they have and take a rowboat ride to get the genuine experience of a floating market!

TakeMeTour's Review

From a local's point of view, Thai people don't actually visit that often anymore since it has become quite commercialized. However, that doesn't mean Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is not worth visiting for travelers. It is great for a traveler with limited time in Thailand to see a gist of the Thai floating market culture. It's also opened every day! However, the prices of food and drinks can be slightly pricey compared to other floating markets. 

If you are here on weekends and are a fan of smaller local floating markets, take a look at our wide selection of Private 1-day floating market tours below!
