Contrary to popular belief, for best results, one must not just float like a butterfly and sting like a bee but also remain as headstrong as a mule in a titanium helmet. Today’s Groupon exercises one-third of ideal animal instincts with a half-day tour of Damneon Saduak floating market from GM Holidays. Choose from:
- For RM49, you get a tour package for 1 person (RM87 published rack rate)
- For RM89, you get a tour package for 2 people (RM174 published rack rate)
Slumbering souls and their physical vessels wake in time for early departures from city chambers, ready for half-day tours that begin with neck-craning visits to coconut habitats. Level vision lines an hour later, keeping a sharp eye and bargaining instincts on floating watercrafts offering authentic Thai cuisine, fruits, vegetables, spices and souvenirs followed by optional odysseys through tour canals via paddle boat and self-reflection. Further jaunts to the homes of distant relatives may be embarked on as elephants, monkeys and snakes ponder frayed familial ties though injured feelings may be revived with purchases at jewellery and handicraft centres. Tour takers return in peace to hotels by 2pm, leaving them ample time for an afternoon siesta if so inclined.

we went to this floating market and really enjoyed it. our family of 4 went in a long tailed boat that had a woman paddling it for us. she gave us straw hats to wear. our ride lasted just over an hour, which was more than enough time. if course it is touristy, but i believe all the floating markets are at this point, but i felt it had an authentic feel to it as a first time visitor to Thailand. i bought some spices, some fruit and some souvenirs. i liked the fact that we rode through the canals where Thai people actually lived and got to see their homes. – Sep 12, 2011
I'd recommend you go. We visite it last week - took a long tail boat into the market and shopped. It was fun,good food (try the mango sticky rice) and interesting. We were there a total of about 1.5 hours. The ride along on the boat was worthwhile. Shopping was fun. – Sep 12, 2012
