Your Experience

The Must-Visit Floating Market

If you’re wondering what a floating market is, it is exactly what it sounds like: a market afloat a maze of canals. Experiencing the floating market of Damnoen Saduak is a rare opportunity when in Thailand, a great way to engage with the locals and pick up on their culture and lifestyle.

You will take a long-tail boat and sail along the Damnoen Saduak canals. Notice the local houses lined along the canal and take a peek at their intriguing ways of living. When you arrive at the market, be mesmerized by the stunning array of merchants and local vendors selling their products on their boats. Indulge in tasting the local food, such as Pad Thai, Mango Sticky Rice, Boat Noodles, and Coconut Ice Cream. Don’t forget to take back home a souvenir of this vibrant floating market.

Damnoen Saduak is not only famous for its floating market, but its exciting elephant village as well. Get down at this elephant village on your way back, and wave at the majestic animals. You may ride an elephant if you like, at your own expense.

Visit the Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo (Optional)

The Samphran elephant ground and zoo ensures there’s something in store for all age groups. The two main highlights of the Samphran include the Elephant Theme Show and the Crocodile Wrestling Show.

The Elephant Show is quite the display, bursting with colors and culture. It includes an all-encompassing sound system with narrations, making it easier to understand various stages of the performance. The stars of the show, the elephants, engage the audiences by performing dances, playing soccer, and even fighting battles, much like the “Yutha Hathi.” The Yutha Hatti is a historical battle scene that involved elephants during the fight.

The Crocodile Show is yet another beguiling experience where the “master crocodile catcher” involves the crocodiles in some breathtaking stunts. You’ll be sitting at the edge of your seat the entire time!
