Floating Market - Away from tourists

The Floating market - Away from tourists

Departure from your hotel in Bangkok at 06.30
We drive the northern route via Nakorm Pathom to the Floating market of Damnoen Saduak.
It takes up to 2 hours to get to the Floating Market.

In a row boat you will drive for about 2 hours through the market-canals and the surrounding area.
At the Floating Market of Damnoen Saduak , since more than 140 years, the vendors come every day in their samphans (rowboat) to the market, selling their  products like vegetable, fruits, ready made food and sweets to the locals and foreigners.

During the rowboat-ride through the market, you are the closest to this market and of course you may buy some fruits or sweets from another boat.
After leaving the market-canal, you will pass other canals further away, will see small temples, settlements, orchards, cocopalm plantations and much more.

Before getting back to the parking lot you will stop at a small, unknown, but very interesting temple near the market. Here are nearly no tourists.
Continue by car to the Mae Khlong River, about 10 km from the Floating market away.
An old and really beautiful catholic church is the next attraction.

Continue along fruit and vegetable plantations to Ampawa subdistrict to visit  “King Buddhalerta Napalai Memorial Park”, or easier,  Rama II Park.
Rama II park is a large park with many rare trees and flowers, as well as some old buildings from King Rama II period, which consists old furniture and are open for the public to visit.

We pass the city of Samut Songkram and get to Wat Satthatam, a temple build in boat-shape, made from wood and with many Mother of Shell inlayments.
Lunch in a local restaurant in the mangrove-forest of Samut Songkram.

The Don Hoi Lodh seafood market is our next stop, only about 15 minutes drive from the restaurant we had lunch before. The vendors in their small stalls sell fresh seafood as well as dried fish and fish-paste.
Many Thais, coming back from the beach resorts Hua Hin or Chaam, they stop on the way back at Don Hoi Lodh seafood-market to buy fresh seafood.

Our last stop today will be at the salt pans between Samut Songkram and Samut Sakhon.

Floating Market - Away from tourists

The floating market in Bangkok became world famous after it was used in a legendary James Bond scene. (The man with the Golden Gun) It was here that Roger Moore milled around in a longtail boat in pursuit of villains. Today it is a major tourist attraction in Bangkok area despite the fact that the market actually located in Samut Songkhram, an hour's drive southwest of the city.

The Floating Market (Damnoen Saduak) consists of a number of small channels, filled with small boats managed by cunning Thai ladies always ready to sell their products and fight for the best position in the canal. The floating market is hot, humid and busy, but incredibly fun!
