The Floating Markets of Damnoen Saduak Tour from Bangkok
Experience the way Bangkok used to be before the days of great skyscrapers, cars and supermarkets at the floating markets of Damnoen Saduak approximately 100km outside of Bangkok. With its extraordinary range of colours, fragrances and flavours, the floating markets of Damnoen Saduak are a vibrant insight into Thailand as it was in years gone by.
Our floating market tour from Bangkok takes you to Thailand's largest floating market, and a fantastic example of these must-see markets that happen all around Thailand.
We'll begin the tour early in the morning as a Bangkok Excursions tour guide meets you at your hotel in central Bangkok around 7am - we need to get to the markets early! From the heart of Bangkok we'll travel down the scenic klongs (canals) on a traditional longtail speed boat past riverside villages with their stilted houses and children playing in the river, and past fruit plantations and beautiful Thai countryside.
As we get closer to the floating market of Damnoen Saduak you'll notice the river-ways get busier as hundreds of buyers and sellers make their way to the markets along the local canal network - the lifeblood of the region. If you're looking for something special to take home, or simply browsing, you'll find everything and anything at the floating market, from beautiful brightly coloured fresh flowers to arts and crafts made locally by skilled workers.
There's also plenty of delicious food served everywhere you look, from sweets such as sticky mango rice to delicious savoury crabs, chicken skewers and sweetcorn.
The floating markets are a fabulous site that you have to visit on your holiday to Bangkok, we guarantee you wont regret it!

Bangkok Floating Market Tour
What a fantastic day!! Bangkok city is amazing and we went on a number of tours to it's many temples, markets and major sights, again with Bangkok Excursions, but the idea of heading out of the City a bit for a day and heading the famous floating markets sounded very appealing to us.
The journey along the klongs on an old fashioned long boat was in itself worth doing as the views we're fantastic and you really got an insight into life in Thailand outside the city.
On arrival to the floating markets we were blown away, pictures cant prepare you for the sights, smells and atmosphere of the place!
Our tour guide for the day was lovely and made us feel like we could do what we wanted rather then following a written-in-stone plan which was nice as it allowed us to spend longer at place we enjoyed more.
Overall would highly recommend Bangkok Excursions for tours in Bangkok and as general ambassadors to anyone coming to this amazing city. Will be using again

Bangkok Floating Market Tour
We were told to go and see the Floating Markets of Bangkok by our friends who had been on a number of tours with Bangkok Excursions last year. Sounds obvious but need to point out to anyone that hasn't been, just how different they are to any other market you would have been to! Absolutely stunning visually and really exciting.
All tours we went on with Bangkok Excursions were excellent xx

Bangkok Floating Market Tour
What a fantastic and exciting day! Me and my wife went on the floating market tour from Bangkok with Bangkok Excursions and had an amazing day. We booked a number of tours with Bangkok Excursions (see other reviews) and every one of them was well worth the money we paid.
The floating markets of Bangkok was one of the things on my list i had to see while in Thailand and it definitely lived up to my expectations.
The great thing about this tour is that the journey to the Floating Markets was fantastic too and you get to see some lovely sights on the way. Once again would 100% recommend this tour and Bangkok Excursions
