Floating Market Tour with Long-Tail Speedboat Ride

by Tour East Thailand Duration 6h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is Rp419.467

Take an unforgettable boat tour on a peaceful canal that weaves through Thailand's picturesque countryside. Experience the lifestyle of locals who live and work on these interconnected waterways, and take in the daily bustle at Damnoen Saduak, popular floating market selling colourful handicrafts and fresh produce.

Begin your day by getting picked up at your hotel (if option is selected) or meet at Narai Hotel in Silom, and then head out of town, passing through the beautiful Rachaburi Province to glimpse the timeless lifestyle of the people who reside along the canals in the Damnoen Saduak District.

Stop by a coconut farm for a look at the process of making sugar from this useful native fruit, and then continue past houses set right on the water. Listen as your guide shares stories about the area's farmers, who use canal waters in this naturally fertile area for both irrigation and transport.

When you reach your boat, hop on board and cruise through the scenic waterways on your way to the famous floating market. Arrive and admire massive piles of fruit and vegetables carefully stacked on small boats. Snap photos of each vendor, consider bartering for your own tasty snack, and look for handicrafts from artisans cruising through the market before you head back to shore and your hotel.

Optional paddle boat is available and payable on the day bookable with your local Guide.

Our guide wasn’t as fluent in English as we would have liked and didn’t do a very good job of explaining the various parts of the tour to us from the very start. While the floating market was well worth the time & cost, we missed out on taking full advantage of all it could be because it wasn’t explained well enough for us to fully understand our options.
