Floating Markets of Damnoen Saduak

Floating Markets of Damnoen Saduak

Damnoen Saduak’s floating market is one of the most-documented in Thailand and provides a daily livelihood to hundreds of vendors.

Found just over an hour’s drive from Bangkok in the Ratchaburi Province, this market has been a favourite with tourists for years and provides a vibrant backdrop for many a photo opportunity.

It’s a timeless glimpse into the ancient practice of waterside shopping that originated in this part of South East Asia, and today brings locals and tourists together in a bustling hub of activity.

Shop for Thai silk, crafted candles and other mementos, or grab a tasty lunch of mango sticky rice, papaya salad and fresh fish dishes.
