This vibrant floating market is a must-visit when in Bangkok!
At the Damnoen Saduak market, vendors sell fresh produce out of their gorgeous floating boats. This colorful, bustling market is popular for a reason.
We begin the day with a drive outside the city to the Damnoen Saduak floating market. This world famous market has been around for over 100 years and is one of the most vibrant in the Bangkok area. It features numerous small boats laden with colorful fruits and vegetables, paddled by Thai women wearing bamboo hats, and is one of the only places to see this traditional way of buying and selling goods in Thailand.
The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is almost always crowded with hundreds of sellers, buyers and tourists. The best way to experience the the bustling atmosphere of the market is to board a boat and float through the small canals. While aboard, you will be able to purchase fresh local produce from the vendors. This floating market is one of the most photographed places in Thailand and certainly a Bangkok icon.
