Damnoen Water Market (Bangkok-Thailand)
Damnoen water market is about 75 km away from the center of Bangkok and is also one of the most popular markets among the tourists. There are not so many local people because of the much higher prices for the tourists. For this reason, You need to be careful when hopping. Namely, the seller will start offering You five times higher prices, so we suggest that You immediately divide this amount and offer at least 7 times less of the price, so You would not be fooled. You can also take photographs on this market with a huge snake, and You can rent Your boat and shop while You are being on the river. The benefits of Damnoen are that it works every day from morning till night so it will always be included in the schedule.Still, if You plan to go on a water market during the weekend, then go to Ampawa water market because it is more authentic and prices are more affordable. However, if You are not able to go on a weekend at the market, visit the Damnoen water market as the water market is something You have to experience.
