A small town located a hundred kilometers southwest of Bangkok, near Ratchaburi, Damnoen Saduak is known throughout Thailand for its more than famous floating market. It was in 1866 that King Rama IV ordered the construction of a canal about 32 km long to join two rivers, the Mae Klong River and the Tacheen River. Because of the fertile soil around the canal, it was only natural that a market was set up, with the sale of the cultivated products.

This floating market still exists, even if it has lost much of its authenticity. Thousands of tourists, guided by tour operators, come here every day to enjoy the typical setting and admire the nobly installed vendors on boats and moving on the canals.
