Damnoen Saduak Floating Market: Ratchaburi, Thailand

Located 100 km southwest of Bangkok in Thailand’s Ratchaburi province, Damnoen Saduak is one of Thailand’s last surviving floating markets.

Waltz along slender longtail boats… witness old world village life by the riverside… exchange smiles with elderly fruit and vegetable vendors.  And of course, there’s the obligatory pit-stop for a bowl of delicious Nam Tok pork ‘Boat noodles’, cooked straight out of a canoe.

Despite a heavy tourist presence and an increasing number of boats flaunting knick knacks and souvenirs, there is still plenty of the old ways here to take in.
