Damnoun Sadouk Floating Market
1. How to go there
BY bus - take the bus at Sai Tai Mai Staion from Bangkok to Damnoun Sadouk. Take about 2 hours. The first bus is at 5am. For more info all +662 435 5031 (the Sai Tai Mai station)
By car - you can rent a car at any car rent shop :D Now it costs from 800 - 2000 THB depends what car, if you got the license recomend this so that you can go to other places easily
With travel agent - About 2500 THB each (or more) I don't remember sorry but they will take you to two places : Tiger Temple and Floating Market
Hiring a boat
When you're at the floating market, you can hire any kind of boat. But better take a paddle boat more than the one with the engine.
The paddle boat will cost 300THB but you can negotiate. The one with the engine cost 600 THB. It can contain 8 people. They will take you around the canal. To see the old thai lifestyle. To see how to make sugar. Takes about 45 minutes.
It's a must to negotiate everything that you want to buy but food :)
Food you should try
1. Boat noodles
2. Kanom Krok
3. Cold Coconut
4. Chao gouy - thai dessert serves with syrup and ice. The colour is black has no taste but can make you feel good when you're hot.
