Damnoen Saduak Floating market is the largest and most popular floating market in the Ratchaburi Province. One of every travel bug’s bucket list is to witness the river packed floating market with wooden boats overflowing with fruits and vegetables and ready-to-eat meals. The scene is just what you would expect from a Thai floating market. It is approximately 100km away from Bangkok and is best accessed by any local tour found around Khaosan Road. Khaosan Road is the top destination and gathering for all backpackers. You will find many package tour agencies, street markets, pubs and bars, cheap booze and massages and pad thai vendors all around. I paid more than double for this tour offered by my hotel so avoid this mistake and find a tour agency on the streets around Khaosan Road.
The weather was perfect and I opted for long trousers because I did not want to be eaten alive by mosquitoes and red ants. Also, bring along your camera and bargaining skills for local souvenirs.
Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day.
