A Trip to the Floating Market

In the holidays after Songkran festival in 2001, I went to the floating market in Damnoen Saduak. It is about two hours from Bangkok. I went there in the late afternoon and stayed in the hotel called "Nok Noi" (Little Bird). If you want to go to the floating market, I suggest that you should go there early in the morning before 8 o'clock. Because if you go there later, there will be more tourists and more boats. We went on the boat at 7.00 in the morning. It was perfect at that time.

In floating market you can rent a boat to go around the canal. The price is not fixed, it's around 300-400 baht per boat.
Lots of stuffs are selling on the boat everyday. Most of them are food, fruits, vegetables and souvenirs.

Most of the tourists in the early morning are Thai people. The boats are going around the canal and you can ask an oarsman to stop to buy some stuff.
