Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

The country’s most famous floating market sets up shop 50 miles from Bangkok. Today, vendors sell more souvenirs than goods bought by locals, but this watery market will show you how commerce in Thailand used to be. Hire a private longboat and visit other nearby local vendors while you’re there.

Getting there: Take an early morning bus from Bangkok or join a tour group.
