16-Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and Crocodile Farm
Enjoy a private day tour of the floating markets of Damnoen Saduak and get a behind the scenes look at rural life that lies beyond Bangkok. Your expert guide will travel with you some 64 miles (104 kilometers) southwest of Bangkok, where you’ll board a long-tailed speedboat and take a thrilling ride through picturesque marshes doted with traditional stilt houses en route to the markets. Your friendly guide will answer all of your questions and share stories and insight into local life for people on the water. Opt to get a closer look at the markets on a local boat (optional extra) through the network of canoes, piled high with fresh, vibrant produce. Be advised that since the markets are a popular stop for travelers looking to spend a day outside the city, some of the items for sale by local vendors may not seem authentically Thai, and instead geared towards out-of-towners.
