Welcome back to my trip to Damnoen Saduak Ratchaburi Floating Market. Sorry the lag here as I am currently traveling in Taiwan. Will share on my trip in Tainan, Taiwan in my coming posting after we complete my Thailand series. =). Ok.. let’s get back ……
Passed a couple of bridges before we arrive that floating market.
Lots of tour buses parked at the parking lots outside the market. Noticed that the Thai tour buses are really colourful and packed with decoration as seen below. Cute right?
Walking from where we parked, we headed to the entrance of Damnoen Saduak Ratchaburi Floating Market.
Welcome to the Damnoen Saduak Ratchaburi Floating Market!!! Before moving on, some brief information. Ratchaburi means “The land of the king” and it is one of the district located in the central of Thailand. Damnoen Saduak is one of its district and it’s most famous because of its floating market held every day till noon on a khlong. It’s attraction is seeing old style and traditional way of selling and buying fruits, vegetables, food etc.. from small boats.
First sight as you enter the market (part of the long market) are the vendors all in the their boats with their goods all lined up.
Another shot of the vendors in their boats.
This vendor sells food. Looks yummy!!
That’s not all. More to come. Look out for the next part. =)
Hi!!! This posting is about my trip to Thailand way back in the mid 2008. Yup. It been quite a while to write on this but it is better later than never sharing. =)
These were some of the views from one of the hotels located on Sukhumvit Rd taken in the morning which I stayed in.
Today, my trip was heading to the floating market in the Damnoen Saduak District in the Ratchaburi province. The trip was expected to take about 1hr to 1.5hrs but it all depends on the traffic out of Bangkok. Guess if I recalled, it took about 2hrs.

That’s a huge can…..
