DAMNOEN SADUAK FLOATING MARKET TOUR – THIS IS A JOIN IN TOUR THAT MEANS THIS TOUR WILL BE SHARED WITH OTHER PEOPLE
TOUR DESCRIPTION. Khlong Damnoen Saduak is the name given historically to the canal excavated by the soldiers and the local people during the reign of King Mongkut, which was finished in 1868. It is 35 km long, and links the Tha Chin and Mae Klong rivers in the central western province of Ratchaburi. The project was principally undertaken to facilitate transport and trade, by creating smaller canals that link towns and villages along the way. At Damnoen Saduak a good part of the population lives along the banks of the canal; most of them are farmers who grow a variety of tropical fruits such as papaya, oranges, coconuts, bananas, guava etc. The canals also provide a source of water for irrigation.
Today the floating market at Damnoen Saduak is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Thailand. Apart from locally grown tropical fruits, the market vendors also sell a variety of produce including vegetables, meat, fish, handcrafts and souvenirs. The floating market is 109 km from Bangkok.
