Floating Market

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Ratchaburi is one of the most popular floating markets in Thailand. Every day many Thai and foreign tourists travel here to shop, eat, and absorb the atmosphere of Thailand water markets that have been like this for over a 100 years.

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. It took over 2 years to dig, and was eventually finished under the reign of his successor King Rama V. 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.

 

The floating market is at its best early in the morning before the crowds arrive and the heat of the day sets in. The best photos of this colorful scene are from the bridge at Ton Khem, which crosses over the canal. The market is bustling with activity from the early morning hours until around 11:00am. The floating markets are at their best early in the morning before the crowds arrive and the heat of the day sets in.

The Damnern Saduak floating market is actually a combination of 3 different markets. The principal market is at Ton Khem. Merchants paddle their small boats piled high with fresh fruit and vegetables along the crowded, narrow canal, offering their goods to buyers standing along the banks of the canal. The canal is lined with food stalls and souvenir shops. If you’d like to buy souvenirs from the shops here, remember that bargaining is expected.
