Damnoen Saduak Floating Market - Second trip to Bangkok

a dirty floating market.. and not so crowd and wonderful as talked

Regret! Menyesal!

That's what I felt when I finally visited this floating market (#&(*#&*!%#$). I have been doing some research before I visit and read that wont be very expensive to visit this place! (please consider I brought 5 people with me and its all charge on me, or lets just say my treat).

I rent a car/taxi for THB 2000/10 hours. I think its cheap since the floating market is out of Bangkok, it is in Ratchaburi province which take 1.5-2 hours by free way. You can

The driver didn't take us to the main floating market, but to the port so we need to rent a boat/very small boat/kayak with machine that cost me THB 700/person or in total THB 3,500 or USD 120!
I was shock with the price but no bargain, I want to cancel but our trip there is taking 2hours so canceling would be a very disappointing for my Mom and Mother in law. So I paid. I went there because i want to buy "Durian sticky rice" which the hotel person said plenty there, but its not the season of Durian +__+ *burst in tears*. So we actually went there for nothing!

The view is ugly, the river is very dirty ( i have seen Chonggye Cheon river in Seoul, its amazing clean).
the life was very bad to see, and the price of the items is the most expensive of all. For example, I bought t-Shirt in Chatucak for THB 150 and they sell same stuff at the cost of THB 900!! Crazy price isn't it?!! The food not really nice, the people are annoying and unfriendly, I really hate this floating market.

My mom is complaining because this place is like untouchable, and also its not clean after all. we spent only 1 hours and back to our car and do sightseeing in another place.

Its not worth the price is USD 120, I can use the money to pay the hotel in luxury for 3 nights at i-Residence hotel. So, if you want to see the wonder of beauty of Bangkok do not visit this place.

Here is some picture!
