What To Expect

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
Famous for its tourist-friendly floating markets, Damnoen Saduak is the one you’ll find in the tourist literature on Thailand. Bring your camera along to witness the river packed with wooden boats overflowing with fruit and vegetables, which they sell to people standing on land. The scene is colourful and loud; just as you’d expect from a Thai market. It is just 100km from Bangkok.

Damnoen Saduak is a must when you are Thailand. I Asia Thailand made this easy. A bus ride that is 2hrs long is not that long because “Niky”, our tour guide made our trip interesting because she shared the Thailand culture in a nutshell and gave some tips how to bargain when we get to market. She shared the culture of Buddhism and monk lifestyle and some local words we can actually used not just our trip but also useful throughout our vacation. The floating market is beautiful and Thai people are very friendly. This was a private tour so we can swap and change with the guide which was excellent
Recommend I Asia for the market tour

Even though it’s a group tour, the tour guide made sure that we were all engaged with the tour and looked after us well. We had a great time at the famous floating market with a free boat ride included too. Great food options as well and the guide suggested the mango and rice which was delicious. This tour helps especially for families, where traveling between all these places will be difficult. Excellent morning out!
highlight of or time in Bangkok

There are so many floating market in Thailand, and Damnoen Saduak floating market is the most popular one. We booked this with I Asia as we used them last year in Phuket.
We were picked up from the hotel by our guide Nok, transfer was about an hour and Nok kept us entertained on the way. We were glad we chose I Asia as the boat was also included and this was an amazing way to enter the market area.
Exploring this legendary floating market here you can see numerous vendors selling local foods, fruits and products on their boats.
You shouldn’t miss the opportunity to try the fresh coconuts and also the Mango and sticky rice. In all we had a great day BUT the best part was the guide and also the free hotel pick up. This was excellent value for money!
Great experience to the floating market.

It was quite fun on the boat. The lady who was paddling the boat was friendly and pointed out the different fruit trees like mango and banana trees.

There was a stopover at a coconut sugar plantation where they showed us how the sugar was made from the coconut tree.
