Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

Last updated by lala at 2014/5/6

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is located about 80 kilometers southwest of Bangkok City. If tourists want to visit the floating market at its highest peak, they need to start off very early from Bangkok. Inside the markets, there are boats selling snacks, such as congees and noodle.. Visitors can have breakfast there. This floating market is the only one of its kind that retains its original look and features. There are three floating markets there, Ton Khem, Hia Kui and Khun Phithak, Among which, Ton Khem is the most bustling and worth seeing one.

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market offers a good opportunity to see and experience local people’s life. Small rowing boats float on the river, together with local people’s houses along the river banks, forming a unique impression of Bangkok. In order to protect the local culture and attract tourists at the same time, Thai government developed this floating market on the Damnoen Saduak River, which was opened in 1868 during the reign of King Rama IV.

The boats carrying fruits and vegetables float on the narrow water way lined with dense tropical forests. On the boats, women wearing their unique straw hats hawk their products. At peak hours, the boats either selling products or carrying tourists are even stuck in the traffic jam, forming a bustling scene.

The opening time of the market usually lasts from early morning till two o’clock in the afternoon. The peak hours last from seven to eight in the morning every day.
