“Damnoen Saduak” Floating Market

Last September, after picnicking at Ratchaburi province, when going back way to Bangkok, traveled to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.

Damnoen saduak Floating Market in Ratchaburi is one of the most popular floating market.

Klong Damnoen Saduak Damnoen Saduak is the straightest and longest canal in Thailand. The canal was built on royal initiative as King Rama IV of Thailand wanted to link the Mae Klong River with Chinese river ways to support transportation and trade. 

The canal is 32 kilometers long and has more than 200 branches.

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market’s popularity grew to new heights in 1971-1973 when the river was full of farmers on their boats selling their wares. And that is the way trade is performed in this area until todays.

Locals conduct business on the river banks selling goods such as food, clothing and souvenirs.

I had lunch here. Guay Teow (Noodle Soup) and Thai chicken satay.

It was a great tour to experience the Local Original Floating Market lifestyle.

Also I’ve written a post about Floating Market before. If you did not see. Check “Amphawa” Floating Market

Hope you like my post. Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Stay safe and take care!
