  • The market is located about 100 km from the center of Bangkok by what we hired a tour to go there, cost us about 1200 baths. We arrived about 8, 30 am and there were more canoes with tourists than with goods to sell. In general, the channel that is the market is very very dirty and posts that are placed on both sides of the market like... also sold the same souvenirs that you can find on any other street in the city! In our tour guide took us to an elephant camp and the other Tigers to try to sell us the input and to fill in the morning. Total disappointment!

  • This tour was excellent as we were only with another couple in the mini bus which soon had us out of Bangkok and into the country. After a rest stop at a coconut farm market which featured a wide rang...  read more »
  • It is one of the places to do near Bangkok. M ^ if this typical local market is a bit invaded me by the tourism there are fairly typical and very nice to visit. It's pretty unique and frankly to see. Do not hesitate to go there very early in the morning, there will be less crowded and more merchandise and stalls to see.

  • A super touristy place. Our tour guide told us to try to bargain for 70% off. The best part was our boat ride to the market--very interesting to see how people live along the canals, as well as a couple of hotels. The market itself was more of a tourist trap.
  • Over priced for what you get. You can buy most the things somewhere else for 1/4 what you pay there. I did it once would not do it again. More or less just a tourist trap. Taxi driver who took us there I'm sure was getting a cut. Taxi driver quoted one price then changed it when we got home. Get price in writing before going unless you really trust your driver. 2 hour drive from Bangkok.
  • Really beautiful market, but overrun by tourist-driven attractions (i.e. pictures with a giant albino anaconda). Far from Bangkok (duh)--about 2 hours each way. The klong (canal) tour we took before was the best part as it allowed brief glimpses of how traditional lifestyles continue and yet are drastically altered by modern technology.
  • Floating market was a great experience. I love to barter and it was really fun. Dont go planning to buy a bunch of stuff. There are much better prices if you go to the night market in bangkok. Remember you are shooting for about 70% off of the price they first give you. Even if you dont get quite that price I would still get something because it is a fun memory and story.
  • Bangkok one of the must visit DAMNOEN saduk floating market . you can book this trip from any local travel agents by only 400-500thai bath with tiket and round transfers. You can see lots of beautiful hand made things and can buy also as a suvineor. thai traditional food u can enjoy when u take ride of thai traditional boat they stop next to shop .
