    Floating Market & Rose Garden

Full Day Guided Tour from Bangkok

Enjoy your drive through attractive countryside to Damnoen Saduak about 100 kilometres west of Bangkok. Here, board a long‐tail boat and navigate the ‘Klongs’ (canals) built around 1866. The klongs facilitate easy transfer of fruits, flowers and vegetables. Damnoen Saduak is one of the largest and most colourful floating markets in the country. During the boat ride you will pass orchards, traditional teak houses and see the klong‐dwellers going about their daily lives.

The ride is about 20 minutes and ends at the floating market. On arrival you will have some free time to browse the many crafts and clothing in the market area. For the full experience, hop into a row boat and visit the canal-side stalls around the floating market. This is at an extra charge

From Damnoen Saduak we drive to the Rose Garden, a beautifully landscaped 70‐acre botanical park by the Ta Chine River, where the Cultural Centre recreates a typical Thai village. Here, you will see the interesting and informative Thai Village Show, enabling visitors to experience first‐hand rural Thai lifestyle. In addition to the show, there are demonstrations of Thai boxing, cock fighting and fencing, as well as an ordination ceremony into monkhood. Around the Rose Garden are villagers working at traditional crafts – silk weaving, pottery making, umbrella painting, Khon mask carving, mat weaving, doll making, fruit carving, garland making and the intricate working of silver and lacquer ware.

Also includes is a elephant show and stop at a local craft market. Lunch is enjoyed at a local restaurant, included in your tour.
