About Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is a well known tourist attraction which is located 85 km to the south east of Siam Square in Bangkok. You can take a public bus there, a tour or a taxi, for which you will need to negotiate a fixed price as you are very unlikely to find a Bangkok taxi driver who will take you there on a meter. Until the beginning of the 20th Century Bangkok had lots of floating markets, indeed for several centuries from the time that Bangkok was founded in 1782 more vendors operated from boats than they did dry land because Bangkok is built on water logged ground which made travelling and doing business easier on the waterways than it was on the land. From the start of the 20th Century onward roads were developed in and around Bangkok and these became the major form of transport, markets began to become land based, and floating markets ceased operating. Damnoen Saduak Floating Market was established in 1971 as a tourist attraction which is popular with both foreign tourists and Thai tourists who also are as unlikely to have ever seen a real floating market as people visiting from Europe.
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is a tourist trap, but it is also a fun and nostalgic recreation of the past. The market consists of a fairly short stretch of canal with lots of boats and Thai people running small businesses from those boats selling food and souvenirs whilst dressed in traditional clothing. In some ways it is a living museum exhibit albeit with slightly overpriced goods on offer to eager tourists.
