You shouldn’t miss the floating market if you visited Bangkok. There are at least 10 floating markets located in / near Bangkok and we choose the most popular one – Damnoen Saduak, 100km southwest to Bangkok.
Damnoen Saduak – The most famous & popular floating markets which you’ve seen photographed hundreds of times. 🙂
Vendors along the rivers
We had our lunch along the ride. The food is quite cheap & delicious – pork noodle soup, fish ball soap, only cost 50 bath. Pad Thai (fried kuey toew), 100 bath, Mango sticky rice, 80 bath. Must try and is a good experience especially for kids, eating at the boat!
Tips: Don’t buy any souvenir at the floating market., unless you really like it. I found the cost is more than double compare to Bangkok town. Example: 1 set (4-5 pieces) of coin purse cost 350 bath in Floating Market, while you can get 1 set at 100 bath at Asiatique.
