Damnoen Saduak Floating Market Reviews
KLOOK的一日遊行程，加上樹中廟，一整天曼谷近郊遊，很方便。 中文導遊一團兩車，一車配兩個導遊，參加大多是香港、馬來西亞、台灣人等散客，可能會有人覺得過度觀光化，但對初次到訪者來說省去交通勞頓、講價來回，清楚的提示是滿實用的。 more »KLOOK's one-day itinerary, coupled with Zhongzhong, is very convenient for a full day in the suburbs of Bangkok. Chinese, with a single, plus mostly Hong Kong, West China, Taiwan people and other casual visitors, may be people to get a degree of light, but for the first time visitors to say to save traffic, come back, clear tips are useful.
8月下旬にツアーで行きました。ここの水上マーケットが観光地化していると分かっていての訪問です。 まずスピードボートで手漕ぎボート乗船付近まで向かいます。結構スピードが出るので風が気持ちよく、アトラクション感覚で楽しいです。手漕ぎボートでは女性の船頭さんが何も言わず船を進めてくれました。土産物やフルーツに揚げ物焼き物…船や川の両端で色々と売っていて、時には売り子さんに声を掛けられますがしつこくありま... more »I went on a tour in late August. I know that the floating market here is becoming a tourist destination. First of all, it goes to the vicinity of the rowing boat boat by the speedboat. Because the speed goes out considerably, the wind is pleasant, and it is happy in the sense of attraction. In the rowing boat, the female boatman said nothing and proceeded with the boat. Fried food on souvenirs and fruits... They sell a lot on both ends of the ship and the river, and sometimes they are talked to by the vendors, but they are not persistent. In advance, the tour guide told us that souvenirs are more expensive than buying them in Bangkok, so we bought coconut ice cream (60B) and enjoyed the atmosphere. The rowing boat was crowded, but it was not enough to move forward, and the boarding time was about 20 minutes. The guide says that it is vacant today. It is recommended if you want to taste the atmosphere of the floating market.
It is a very interesting experience but the entire floating market is a big tourist trap. The "Coconut Farm" is no exception. Having said that, I bought two bags of coconut sugar (which tastes similar to maple sugar) for 100 baht. I have never seen in Canada and can use it when making Thai curries.
DO NOT take a taxi to the market and try to get a long tail boat there. They will charge you an exorbitant price. MAKE SURE you take a group tour that includes the long tail boat. Do not fall for the private tour scam! Other than that, as an experience it was great and we really enjoyed it.
