Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
Damnoensaduak is one of a provincial district of Rajburi Province. Most people live densely along both sides of the canal from one end of the canal to another.The majority of this people are agriculturists. They grow several different kinds of fruit and vegetable for examples oranges, grapes, papayas, cabbages, bean, onion and etc. The land in this area is naturally fertile. Apart from providing transportation, Damnoensaduak Canal also provides farmers with adequate water for agricultural purposes for the whole year around. More than 200 small canals were dug by local peasants to connect with it to get water to splatter their land. Moreover; these small canals also become protitiouus ways of taking their agricultural products to the markets in neighbouring provinces and Bangkok. Day in and day out from about 8 a.m. to about 11 a.m. the Floating Market is routinely crowded with hundrreds of vendors and purchasers floating in their small rowing boats selling and buying or exchanging their goods. What they purchase are particularly food, fruit and vegetable which mostly brought from their own orchards.

Excellent Experience - will do it again for sure, next time
HappyCouple1998, 05-09-2019
Grandma Lucky was a good Guide. Really good and informative. Train Market is an experience you should not miss and make sure you do it with this company or another that takes you by train to the market. Long Tail boat to Floating Market is a nice experience and watching all the peddlers on various boats selling food stuffs, souvenirs etc is really interesting but u can choose to hire a paddle boat ticket at THB150 per person I think but we did not do this and instead walked around the market at the platform for the Floating Market and sat down for some food. Negotiate the menu price as pricing is crazy. Food was good. Finally only paid THB200 for Seafood Tom Yum and THB100 for Morning Glory (KangKung) and THB40 for two bowls of rice. We had our own bottle water. Tour Guide will give you a cold one before you leave the floating market on the van back to Bangkok
Best Tour with Best Guide - Jenny

The tour was amazing and Jenny was even more amazing! Best tour guide ever! I highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Bangkok. If possible request Jenny by name. What you see is exactly what you get. I also recommend having some money on hand so that you can support the sellers at the floating market and at the train market. Please also listen to the instructions you get at the train market. A lot of tourists we're standing in the way of the train just to get a selfie at such a dangerous time.
Maeklong and Damnoensaduak market day out

Good tour showing daily life of the market on water and very interesting how the railway market packs up and unpacks just before the train arrives.
Our guide Meow was informative and entertaining.
Domnoen saduk and railway market
tau962, 25-12-2019
We had arranged this tour via TRIPADVISOR and i was a little disappointed because we had two guides and they had occupied for five vans. So they had to worried for many tourists with different interesting. Mr. Sang did the job so well only compliments to him and to another guide too as well as to driver. We were there only hour an half what by me opinion is not enough the same situation on Train market.
A Must to experience
Sharyn1991, 10-02-2020
If in the area, you must visit just for the experience! Beware of the smell - it is one of the worst I have experienced and I have been in post hurricane areas with rotting animals for ten days. Go for the experience - it is quite a thing. Bought a shirt from a vendor and he was friendly and zero pressure to buy. Loved that.
