The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is located in southwest Bangkok about 2 hours away by car. The market still maintains the flavor of old water markets in Thailand. The market dates back more than 100 years. Many movies have been filmed here, including one in the James Bond series. The market generally lasts from early morning until around 2 pm, and you will see local people wearing straw hats and rowing boats carrying vegetables, fruit, and small goods in canals lined with tropical trees. The boats traverse the narrow waterways as vendors hawk their goods. This is still a portrait of life in Bangkok.
