activities / Sightseeing tours

Tour description provided by Viator

Venture from the exotic and colorful Bangkok on a day trip to the countryside and visit Damnoen Saduak floating markets. You'll experience rural Thai culture at its best and cruise by long-tailed speedboat to the markets. See the vendors selling local produce and get an up-close glimpse of everyday life in Thailand.

You'll be picked up from your centrally located hotel and travel by air-conditioned coach from Bangkok to the Damnoen Saduak floating markets, situated 64 miles (104 kilometers) southwest of Bangkok, you will take an exhilarating ride through the marshes and stilt houses of Bangkok on a narrow, long-tailed speedboat towards the markets. Once you reach the markets your local Thai guide will ensure all your questions are answered and even assist those who may wish to take a ride on a local boat (optional extra, payable direct) through the maze of Thai style canoes laden with colorful fruits, vegetables, sweets and meats.

This is a very popular day-trip for many tourists to Thailand and subsequently many of the products for sale by the local vendors at the Damnoen Saduak floating markets today may not seem so authentically Thai.
