About Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
Located in Ratchaburi province about 90km southwest of Bangkok is the original Thai floating market, it is large, bustling and very popular. You need to get up early for this trip as the market opens around 6am until 12 noon, to get the best out of this gem, you should arrive before 9am.
The market was the concept of King Rama IV when he ordered its creation in 1866 by connecting the Mae Khlong and Taachin rivers with a 32km canal. More than 200 minor canals were dug to branch off the main one, which irrigated the area. For more than a hundred years farmers have used these canals to take their locally grown fruit and vegetables to market by barge.
This market is now the second most popular tourist attraction in Thailand with tourists outnumbering the local customers. Fruit and vegetables are still the main produce but nowadays just about anything that tourists will buy is for sale.
Boat hire is 250 baht per person per hour for a 6 seat motor boat including driver.
The Rose Garden
A beautifully landscaped tropical garden 30km west of Bangkok famous for growing orchids and roses, 60 acres of gardens, lawns, a small lake and children’s playground. There are displays of local crafts such as pottery making, parasol painting and traditional rice farming.
There is an elephant show followed by the Thai Village Cultural Show. One hundred and fifty performers portray the many facets of Thai culture, including traditional Thai dances such as the Fingernail dance, the Bamboo dance and Kala dance. There are displays of Thai martial arts, Thai boxing and sword fighting skills, which date back over 600 years. The entrance fee is only 200 baht.

Just a short note to thank your company on its professionalism. Your drivers are prompt and made us feel very welcomed. This was the 2nd time I have used your company and have no hesitation in recommending you to friends, in fact I will be back in October and will use your services again.
Thanks for the smooth arrangements, and in particular for the pre-arrival e-mail communication and advice in the light of the red shirt protests. The Chatrium hotel which you recommended we should change to was out of this world and more than made up for our inability to go to the city centre. As suggested, river transport enabled us to see as much as we needed to. Your driver was waiting for us upon arrival and transported us efficiently to the hotel. He picked us up as arranged later in the week for a memorable visit to the Kwai bridge and Tiger Temple, producing scented towels and cold water from a cool-box filled with ice in the boot of the car – most welcome after a few hours in the sun with the tigers! He was early and waiting for us on check-out and once again a smooth journey to the airport was accomplished. With prices lower than any competitor I could find (and not much more than taxi fare!), and hassle-free service I would recommend BAT to any other visitor to Bangkok.
Thanks for organising the airport transfer at Bangkok for us. The service was very good. It was great to have a reasonably priced pre-booked transfer and avoiding searching high and low for a local meter taxi, especially with 2 young children after a long flight. We’ve had problems in the past where our taxi driver had no idea where our hotel was and ended up on the other side of the city! Also, it was great to walk straight past the bombardment of expensive airport limos when we came through customs. Will definitely use again…and will also not hesitate in recommending to friends.
The service was superb. The car was nice and the driver very friendly and professional. Would definitely use again.
The transport process was excellent. The driver was on time, made contact with us easily and transferred us to the hotel with comfort and helpfulness. The car was very comfortable and I would recommend your services to others.
I found the service spot-on, e-mail confirmation, greeting at the airport and very reasonable price – Excellent service that I wouldn’t hesitate to use again.
I used your service for 4 trips and was very impressed with the service. On-time for all the pick-ups, friendly but not too chatty and good quality cars. Excellent communication via email and sms. I will certainly use your service again.
It has been a pleasure using your company and I will give you my recommendations when I have friends coming to Thailand.
The service we received was great, our driver was both friendly and honest and helped us with different questions we had. We would certainly use this service again when we return for another great stay in Thailand.
The airport transfer service was excellent! We were met on time by a friendly driver and taken to our destination in good time. The price was very fair and the cab was most comfortable. Thank you!
