Experience the original Thai Culture, Tradition & Food at the Damneon Saduak Floating Market & River Kwai on a day trip from Bangkok.

•Thai-Japanese Memorial Bridge.
Damnoen Saduak is a world-famous floating market and the busy scene is an exotic Thailand’s timeless snapshot. Located 100 km from Bangkok city centre, this trip makes it convenient for anyone to see for themselves this unforgettable sight. Decorated long-tail ships glide down the tight canals, tiny wooden buildings bordering the banks on stilts, some with bigger lakes than lawns.
