The Floating Market is a favorite with tourists. The Floating Market gained worldwide recognition after it was used in a legendary James Bond scene. It was here that Roger Moore zipped around in a souped-up longtail boat evading crooks and wowing cinema-goers around the world. Today it is a major tourist attraction in the Bangkok area despite being remotely located in Samut Songkhram, an hour’s drive southwest of the city. Situated at Damnoen Saduak, the Floating Market (of Bangkok) is made up of a number of small canals which are patrolled by small boats piloted by crafty ladies always ready to sell their wares and jockey for position with their competitors. The market is hot, sticky and busy; but an amazing amount of fun! You also have to get up really early to experience it at its best.
