Overview

Of Bangkok’s many floating markets, the most famous is the Damnoen Saduak. Bursting with vendors, visitors and residents who live by the river, Damnoen Saduak is everything you could expect of Thailand’s famous floating markets and more. Colorfully clad merchants stack their canoes with fresh fruit, vegetables, souvenirs and clothes and row along the congested canals to sell their ware to shoppers from near and far.

“Visiting the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market was a highlight of our trip to Thailand. We visited on a Sunday morning, missing the crowds by arriving super early. When we arrived, the floating market was very calm and it was peaceful to float along and visit the vendors.” – Reina M, Kansas City, Missouri

Hundreds of small wooden boats clog the area in a sensory overload. Be prepared for sights, sounds, smells and flavours to assault your senses. And if you plan to buy anything, bring your best negotiating skills because you’ll need to haggle HARD. You might also want to come hungry so you can taste the best of Thai food freshly cracked open: coconut water, mango sticky rice, stir-fried noodles and more. The market is only open in the morning, so the best thing to do is come super early to avoid the crowds or bring a hat and sunnies for the early equatorial sun.

Damnoen Saduak came into existence in the 1800s when King Rama IV moved to link the Mae Klong River with Chinese riverways to improve trade channels. It took over two years to dig the canal, now the country’s longest measuring 32km in total, with over 200 branches. However, Thailand’s floating markets have been around well before that time, stretching back to the days when Bangkok and its surrounds were thick jungle territory, and the easiest way to transport goods was through the waterways.
