Hi,

Need advice how to go to Damnoen Saduak floating market from Sukhumvit Bangkok Montein Hotel and the cost ?
What is the best time to go there to avoid crowd and any suggestion of what food or thing must taste or buy ?
Regards

The drive to the market takes about 90 minutes to 2 hours depending on traffic. Your best option would be to join an organised tour, however the best time to visit the market is early in the morning before the tour buses arrive. If you check my pages there is more information, plus if you want to make the trip on your own Mr Tom is a driver I use when in Bangkok and I am sure he will give you a good price - his contact details are also on my Bangkok pages.

Regards

John

Going to Damnoen Saduak floating market, I suggest you to join the tour. It is not expensive. They will pick you up in your hotel at a.m.
From Bangkok to the floating market will take 2 hours journey. The best time to arrive there is at a.m time. If you come there after 10 a.m, there is nothing so much to see. Tour agent really know the best time to reach there so you don't miss the nice view there.
I tried many food there such as spring roll, duck soup, and some tropical fruits. I could eat those food meanwhile I enjoyed the scenary. It is really fun.
Happy traveling

You can sign up for a tour through local travel agencies. There are lots of travel agencies all over the Bangkok. It doesn't cost anything to ask questions and check prices. Tour company picks you up at your hotel and returns you there at the end of the tour. Pretty simple. One price I remember is 500 baht. Expensive hotels may charge more for the same tour than a private travel agency.

Good luck.

If you are visiting over a weekend, and want to see a "water" market more geared to Thai customers, you might also check out Bang Nam Phueng.

NY's Eve in Thailand

by bulldogtwo

You don't give very much info on your budget as far as what type of hotel that you are looking for.
If you are staying in the Khao San rd area (backpakers) it may be busy but you should still be able to get a room. And there are rooms around Bangkok but your 3-43-and 5 star places are going ot be busy. As John mentioned about the Gala dinners, it is compulsary and expect to pay double or more for that NYE night, in addition to the dinner fee, whether you eat there or not. The Thia's do celebrate NYE but they do have their own NY's celebration per their calandar. This will be the case all over Thailand, not just in Bangkok.
Again, don't know what you are looking for as far as entertainment, or how long you have, but no matter where you go you should be able to find some sort of celebrations going on. Are you looking to stay in the hotel and take advantage of their festivities that are going on or go out?

NIGHT MARKETS

by Adeline_Foo

Enjoy the many NIGHT MARKETS throughout Bangkok. PATPONG ROAD has turned out to be a busy place for shopping at night in the night bazaar. A lot of traders come in the evening and even at 8-9 p.m. to assemble their small outdoor shops.

Walking along this area is an exciting event for visitors. Many kinds of products, e.g. clothing, leather bags, watches, handicrafts, ceramic, wood carving, paintings, etc. are sold every night.

Not only the night bazaar, Patpong area offers many
kinds of entertainment, bars, beer bars, discotheques,
pubs, a-go-go dancing, and shows.

It is easy to have drinks, refreshment, and foods there Here I am ... shopping again!!! You can find lots of things in this so called Pasam Malam'stalls

Songkran Festival

by yen_2


Songkran Festival
(April 7-15, 2003 at Sanam Luang and citywide, Bangkok)

This traditional Thai New Year may be celebrated all over the city, but the main spectacles center around the old area of Bangkok near the Grand Palace, Rachadamneon Avenue and Khaosan Road. At Sanam Luang, the revered Phra Buddha Sihing image will be displayed and bathed by thousands of Buddhists, while, not so far away from Sanam Luang, in the town’s main backpacker haven, Khaosan Road, several thousands of locals and tourists have a blast in the city’s biggest water battle. During this festival, Rachadamneon Avenue’s charm will be enhanced by beautiful fountains along the avenue.

A Little Advice

1. If you get involved in the water splashing, remember that older people are exempt. It's not a great idea to splash policemen either.

2. If you decide to get into the splashing, approach people with respect. Don't get too carried away, or you may accidentally give offence.

3. Take it all in your stride. Maybe you didn't realise that you were going to be in Thailand at this time, and hadn't planned on getting soaked. Well. no amount of getting annoyed is going to change that -- it's their country and their most important festival and the Thai people are going to enjoy it. Put on your worst clothes (or buy some cheap ones) and get into it. You're on holiday -- forget everything, look, learn new things, and just have FUN. You might just find yourself feeling cleansed.

I took the photo just this afternoon along the way to the park and they really put us some water even my little one:)

Empty suitcase is a must!

by Greylady

Luggage and bags are very cheap and good quality so use old cases and bags, then buy new. Wear cotton to keep cool. I always wear comfortable sandals as otherwise your feet will get too hot. Sandals are very cheap to buy. Everything you need is here. I suggest buying tiger balm as it helps headaches, aches and pains, bites and is generally a very handy thing to have. I always make sure I come home with a few jars. The one with the red label is slightly stronger. It is all natural and very safe. Do travel light as you will want to buy so much. Clothes are very cheap and the choice is superb. Beware though, if you are a large size, you may have difficulty in having a choice as Thai people are small and dainty, so their clothes tend to cater for this. However, go to MBK the large department store as they have large sizes there.
