Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is a floating market in Damnoen Saduak District, Ratchaburi Province, about 100 kilometers (62 miles) southwest of Bangkok.
According to legend, King Rama IV had a canal built in Damnoen Saduak County in 1866 to connect the Mae Klong and Tachine rivers. The almost 35 km long canal soon became one of the lifelines of the region and was the most important transport system around Bangkok for a long time.
Damnoen Saduak's floating market consists of a labyrinth of narrow khlongs (canals). Merchants who often wear traditional Mo hom clothing (blue peasant shirts) with wide-brimmed straw hats (ngob) often use sampans (small wooden boats) to sell their goods. These boats are often full of vegetables and colorful fruits. Today, the market has become primarily a tourist attraction that attracts domestic and foreign tourists. The market is often the busiest in the morning from 07:00 to 09:00 and is active until noon.
We are happy to guide you through this labyrinth of channels with our own private guide, where you compete with hundreds of other boats and remember images that you will never forget.
