The Most Popular Floating Market
The Most Popular Floating Market The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is located at
Damnoen Saduak District, Ratchaburi Province, about
105 kms from Bangkok. According to history around
1866 King Rama IV ordered that a 32 kms long canal
be dug at Damnoen Saduak. This canal would connect
the Mae Klong River with the Tacheen River.
The excellent quality soil beside the canal is very fertile
and suitable for growing many kinds of fruits and vegetables.
The area is famous for Malacca grape, Chinese grapefruit,
mangoes, bananas, and coconut. The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is a very attractive
place for tourists to see the old style and traditional way
of selling and buying fruits, vegetables, etc., from small
boats. Tourists will also see traditional Thai houses, the
way they live and travel by boats, and please try riding
on a small boat to experience the floating market and to
see more. This is a worthwhile trip.
