Thailand is definitely one of the most exciting travel destinations in Asia.It boasts of unforgettable parties and nightlife especially in the southern islands, cheap clothing, as well as authentic culture and tradition.
One of the most famous tourist attractions in this country is the floating market or what is locally referred to as Damnoen Saduak.
Located in the province of Ratchaburi in central Thailand, Damnoen Saduak has become a staple part of the itinerary of most tourist visiting Thailand.
The sights of locals and foreigners alike buying and goods on small boats called khlongs, is just too picture perfect, and reflective of the colorful day to day life in Thailand.
It takes about two hours to get to Damnoen Saduak if you’re coming from Khao San Road (KSR). Most travel agencies in KSR offer day trips to the floating market and the tour price ranges from 300 to 400 baht depending on the van service.
Visitors can ride the boats for about 10 to 15 baht each and purchase items from the vendors just like regular locals.
During my visit, I was able to buy several sarongs and shirts, as well as fruits from the vendors.
The main dock also has restaurants that service hungry visitors.
