Damnoensaduak Floating market, Bangkok Thailand
I saw in the TV and also heard about how fun of the floating market before I go to Bangkok. I told to our tour guide must bring us there, and here i come.
We had our best Phat Thai and Tom Yum noodle soup here, and the price is much cheaper if compare to Bangkok city or Chatchuchak market. I also learned how to cook Phat Thai from here.
Our tour guide also brought us to this unseen place in this floating market, a quiet lane where the local peoples living.
Back to busy market, you can find all kind of things selling here.
Since we have to rush back on the road to our next destination Tiger temple, we just stopped here for a short time. If i will visit Bangkok again next time, I must stay longer here as this place is so much of fun. Here was the route that our private tour guide planned for us - Maeklong Train market (reached there by 8.30am for the 1st train) -> floating market ->Tiger temple (must reached there before 1.00pm as to join walk with tiger program -> River Kwai (on the way back). We paid quite a big sum of money for this one day trip. You can get a taxi and follow the above route and I bet you can save a lot of money instead getting a private tour guide. Nevertheless, the tour guide from "Tour with Tong" is very professional and we really enjoyed this trip.
