One of the Thai capital’s most unique and interesting attractions, the Bangkok floating markets, where vendors sell all manner of wares including food, handicrafts, spices, clothing, and fabrics, from their narrow wooden canal boats, are a must experience when visiting the city.
Although these kaleidoscopic markets are synonymous with the city, most are in fact situated a short drive away, and include the world-famous Damnoen Saduak, and the nearby Amphawa, a popular choice with foodies!
Experience the spirited, chaos that is the Damnoen Saduak floating market on this half-day small-group tour from Bangkok. Situated around 100 KM from the city, the market is the largest and most famous of those in the region, immortalised by the high octane canal-chase scene in the 1974 James Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun, and features hundreds of vendors selling all manner of colorful fruit, delicious street-food, ornaments, clothing, and much, much more.
November through to February is the best period to visit as the weather is slightly cooler and dryer than the rest of the year.
