"PALM SUGAR" Floating Markets Tip by RoyJava

Floating Markets, Bangkok: 2 reviews and 1 photos

by RoyJava

Favorite thing: Oowkee, we had to go for a 2 1/2 hours drive from Bangkok to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, which I did not enjoy that much. I loved the overpriced flowers of Mamasan Floating Market, and enjoyed the family business where they produce palm sugar. It was a bit of touristy, but not that pushy!

Fondest memory: So when we had to cross the overcrowded canals with the rows full of souvenir stands we got very happy to see wooden canoes with multicoloured fruits, flowers and vegetables, paddled by Thai mamasans with big smiles and strow head-wearing canal-vendors. Ofcourse this famous image of the Floating Market is no current snapshot anymore, though they still are there! Included the PALM SUGAR boat ... you can make so many lovely dishes with this kind of sugar... mmmmmhhh, I love it!!!

Address: Damnoen Saduak
Directions: 65km SW of Bangkok
