Damnoen saduak floating market.

Day 2
Wake up early in the morning around 7 am as my next destination was to Damnoen saduak floating market. Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is in Ratchaburi Province, about 100 kms southwest of Bangkok (Highway No. 4 (Phetchakasem Rd.) and turn left at Km. 80 for another 25 kms. along Bangpae- Damnoen Saduak Rd). To get there, we took car (THB 1200 per-trip).

Arrived there around 9 am and it was the busier earlier morning. Generally, the market opens around 7:30 am to 12.30pm. Historically, Damnoenssaduak was actually the name of the canal dug in the reign of King Rama IV.

First, indoor shopping
