Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Ratchaburi is one of the most popular floating markets in Thailand. Every day, many Thai and foreign tourists come here to shop, eat and soak up the atmosphere of Thailand’s water markets, which has been going on for more than 100 years. Klong Damnoen Saduak Damnoen Saduak is the longest and longest canal in Thailand. The canal was built at the royal initiative while King Rama IV of Thailand wanted to link the Mae Klong River with Chinese waterways to support transportation and trade. It took more than 2 years to dig and was finally completed under the reign of his successor, King Rama V. The canal is 32 km long and has more than 200 branches. The popularity of the Damnoen Saduak floating market reached a new peak in 1971 – in 1973, when the river was full of farmers on their boats selling their goods. And this is how exchanges are made in this area until today.
Marketed as a major tourist attraction and marker of Thai culture, the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is one of the most popular floating markets in the world. The boats dangling on the water are driven by locals and Thai traders who sell all kinds of farm produce, fruits, souvenirs and freshly prepared local food, which visitors can enjoy while sailing in their own boats.
