Floating Market Half Day Tour

Tour (T)

This tour

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market consists of a maze of narrow canals. Female traders, often wearing traditional clothes (blue farmers’ shirts) with straw hats use sampans (small wooden boats) to sell their wares, often produce that comes directly from farms. The market is often the busiest in the morning around 7 am to 9 am, and is active until noon.

Wandering the small stalls that are located on the banks, local handicrafts, assorted silks, handcrafted jewelry and other small trinkets can be bought. There are also plenty of the Bangkok souvenirs to be found here. You can find both in the small stalls and aboard the vendors floating crafts a tasty local product on offer include mini coconut pancakes, boat noodles cooked in a rich, meaty broth, and delicious coconut ice cream.

The Damnoen Saduak floating market offers a unique culinary experience you won’t find anywhere else. The wooden paddle boat vendors sell many exotic tropical fruits. It is likely that you’ve have probably never eaten them before (and maybe haven’t even heard of). If you want a bigger meal, then visit one of the small, local restaurants lining the river. Here, you can dig into a delicious plate of Thai food – Thai pancakes, dumplings, famous Pad Thai with peanuts or sweet seafood salad. You can have a boat noodle for lunch.

The Maeklong Railway Market is one of the most unusual markets in Thailand. At first glance it almost seems like any other local market, with vendors selling fresh vegetables, colorful fruit, and other foodstuff from tiny shops lining a narrow lane. However, all is not quite as it seems at the Maeklong Railway Market.

At regular intervals throughout the day, a loud train siren will sound and in a matter of moments, the shop owners will scoop up any stray produce, use long poles to hold up their awnings, and casually make way for the huge passenger train that chugs directly through the market! Once the train has disappeared, the vendors will place their awnings back into position and the market will continue as usual. This occurs at the Maeklong Railway Market up to eight times a day, each and every day.
