A glimpse of everyday life in Thailand can be seen at the Damnern Saduak floating market, situated around 100km south west of Bangkok. This Bangkok floating market can be explored on a unique Bangkok floating market tour. You’ll take an exhilarating narrow long-tailed speedboat ride through the marshes and stilt houses, which leads you to the Damnern Saduak Market.
Thai style canoes laden with colourful fruits, vegetables, sweets and meats gently ply their way through the canal, pulling up close for you to view their offerings during your floating market tour. There is lots of bustle and activity – haggling is common and all part of the fun, but don’t expect to get the price down by more than a few baht!
