The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, 95 km away from Bangkok is one of the oldest and iconic floating market in Thailand.
It is considered the most important floating market in Bangkok, although it is often criticized for being more modern, and losing its authenticity as it is catering more towards the overseas rather than the local market.
The 32-kilometre long Damnoen Saduak Canal was constructed in in 1868 to connect the Mae Klong and Tha Chin rivers.
The market is busiest with tourists and boats in the morning, and is open until noon.
The floating market actually comprises of three smaller markets - Ton Khem, Hia Kui, and Khun Phitak,
Damnoen Saduak is especially noted for its fresh fruits from surrounding orchards.
The Amphawa market is also another famous floating market in Thailand, but since it is opened only during the weekend, it is not as popular as the Damnoen Saduak.
