Practically every voyager has a visit to a floating market as a primary concern on his first trek to Bangkok. It's far (100 km, or more than an hour's drive outside Bangkok) Some will succeed, however the substantial lion's share will be disheartened by the separation, the cost of the visit and unquestionably the outrageously early wake up time, who needs to get up at 5 a.m. while on vacation? In any case, why considerably try awakening so early when there are quite than five drifting markets around Bangkok open throughout the day, including a little however exceptionally decent one only 12 km from Siam Paragon? You can be there before lunch without sacrificing your rest, Damnoen Saduak has been Thailand's best known floating market for a very long time but it is also the most touristy one. It's not 'real' anymore as most of the transactions are tourist-oriented and buyers are almost exclusively tourists.
