Things to do:
The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is an excellent example of the central region’s distinctive culture and way of life. Between the Tha Chin River and the Mae Klong River, the Damnoen Saduak Canal functions as a capillary. It is a small waterway but very important because it brings the community of the local people together. If you look at the old houses at a glance, you will see that their fronts face either the river or the canal as they are the primary routes of transportation, just as our homes face the road today.
The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market opens early in the morning. We suggest you come early because the vibe is vibrant, and the weather is not too hot. When the market starts, all the things you can buy are nicely set up, making it a great place to take pictures.
