Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is a floating market located in the Damnoen Saduak District, located about 100 km (62 mi) southwest of Bangkok. It is often considered the most famous floating market for both foreign and domestic tourists.
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market consists of a maze of narrow khlongs (canals), and can be navigated by boat. Female traders, often wearing traditional mo-hom apparel (blue farmer shirt) with ngob (wide-brimmed straw hats) use sampans (small wooden boats) to sell their wares, often produce that comes directly from farms. These boats are often full of vegetables and fruits. Canoe cooks can be found preparing and selling boat noodles. The market is often the busiest in the morning around 7 am to 9 am, and is active until noon.
The market has been featured in several films. A canal chase scene in The Man with the Golden Gun with Roger Moore as James Bond was filmed at the market, and the 2008 film Bangkok Dangerous starring Nicolas Cage includes a scene that takes place at the market.
Right next to Nakhon Chaisi River, the Rose Garden occupies an area of 137.5 rais or about 55 acres and it is utterly blossomed by multitude of beautiful floral. Visitors are stirred by gracious Thai-style houses and a daily, afternoon Thai cultural show. Besides, some parts of the area are hotel, lodges, and golf course.
