Following a morning pickup from your Bangkok city hotel (except non-refundable rate)  meet your guide and travel out by air-conditioned coach to the Damnoen Saduak floating markets. Located a 2-hour drive southwest of Bangkok, the markets sit on a canal waterway created by King Rama IV in the 19th century to promote trade and development outside the capital. Today, they’re widely considered one of Bangkok’s top attractions and offer valuable insight into traditional Thai culture and traditions.
On arrival at Damnoen Saduak, hop aboard a long-tailed speedboat with your guide for an exciting ride through the marshes and stilt-houses to the markets. Once there, listen to a brief introduction from your guide and feel free to ask any questions you may have.
Marvel at the colorful fruits, vegetables, sweets, meats and souvenirs on display and take time to capture the market scenery on camera. Watch the traders and customers going about their daily business on this bustling and vibrant part of the canal, and perhaps purchase some fruit or souvenirs for yourself (own expense). Take a ride on a local boat (optional extra, payable locally) through the maze of traditional canoes and soak up the market atmosphere out on the water.
When your time at the Damnoen Saduak floating markets is up, cruise back to your coach and hop back aboard for the return journey to your Bangkok, where your tour will come to an end.

We were a couple and enjoyed the trip. As many reviews say, it is a nice tourist attraction, the whole floating market is for tourists, but you can bring back with you some souvenir, some coconut sugar and have a nice street food meal or desert (like mango or even durian with sticky rice). We had Ken as guide, which gave us some nice information along the way. The paddle boat at the floating market costs extra, 900 Baht, which the guide can book for you in advance. The hotel transfers where well done. For our hotel pick up, the car was there 10 minutes early.

Had a fantastic trip to the floating market. Our tour guide was lovely, funny and knowledgable. We booked all out tours with La Vacanza Travel and they have been excellent. We will definitely use in the future.
