Yet another weekend, This time we planned to visit floating market. Floating market is a market where goods are sold from boats and now a days these places mainly server as tourist attractions and found in Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam.
While doing some search, found Damnoen Saduak floating market is notably famous among tourist which is located Ratchaburi province of Thailand and this Morning market which opens at 3:00am – 11:00am.
To get there, you can go via van in Victory monument, where you can find vans direct to Damnoen saduak, which cost around 90 baht for single trip (not expensive). After around 1:30hrs of drive you will reach at damnoen saduak floating market where you can get Boats to ride, and price of boat really varies depending upon Thai or Foreigner. Luckly for my trip we had my Thai friend so they charged around 200 baht/person for whole trip, but heard that for foreigner it will cost around 400-800 baht/person. While traveling via boat you can find lots of boat seller tring to sell whatever they have like food, fruits, souvenir, thai silk and many many more. and with no surprise you will find everything expensive compare to Bangkok, but its always worth it to buy few things.
Here are the some of my trip pictures and Videos.
After finish visiting Damnoen saduak, you can visit Amphawa floating market its bit different than Damnoen Saduak and it has its own flavor and fun which will cost only 20Baht and 20mins drive from Damnoen Saduak to Amphawa, and 80baht/Person from amphawa to Bangkok(Victory Monument)
