Damnoen Saduak Floating Market & Shopping Getaway at Bangkok with Ascott Properties

11 December, 2012

PassportChop was back in Bangkok over a long holiday weekend – this time with Ascott properties at Citadines Sukhumvit 11 Bangkok and Somerset Sukhumvit Thonglor Bangkok.

For a detailed day-by-day itinerary, you can download our PassportChop.com Bangkok Weekend Floating Market & Shopping Getaway Itinerary with Ascott Properties.  You can also download our other PassportChop.com Bangkok Weekend Shopping Getaway Itinerary.

Serviced residences are a good option for travellers to Bangkok – be it business travellers or those travelling with children.  The Ascott residences in Bangkok are fully furnished with modern and stylish fittings. The fully equipped kitchen has a cooker hob and hood, microwave, refrigerator, and glassware, crockery, cutlery and utensils. Also provided are the bedroom linens, bathroom towels and toiletries.

Citadines Sukhumvit 11 Bangkok is walking distance to Pacific Place, Phloen Chit Centre and Times Square, shopping at the local and expatriate favourite – Villa Market and a vast array of trendy restaurants, pubs and nightclubs like the Bed Supper Club, Zanzibar and Q-Bar. The BTS Nana Skytrain station is minutes from the residence with Citadines Sukhumvit 11 Bangkok complimentary tuk-tuk service, making it easy to travel throughout the city and live in the comfort of a stylish serviced residence.

Somerset Sukhumvit Thonglor Bangkok is located in close proximity to the business districts in both Sukhumvit and Thonglor area. Guests will be able to experience the dynamic culture of Bangkok as the residence is only a short drive from a number of popular shopping, dining and nightlife destinations. To check out the hottest bites, bars, events and celebrity scoop near the Ascott serviced residence of your choice in Bangkok, go to Ascott Living website, specifically the Ascott Living Inside Track which provides a quick travel guide to Bangkok.

We had checked out the Maeklong Train Market and Amphawa Floating Market and this time, we checked out the famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market with Rat’s tour (rat_bkk@hotmail.com)

Besides shopping at Pratunam Market and Platinum Fashion Mall and Chatuchak Weekend Market, we also checked out an interesting shopping mall at Terminal 21 – where there are lots of photo opportunities even in the toilets!  You must check out the beautiful themed toilets at Terminal 21 🙂

    How did you find the floating market? I spent almost two months in BKK and around, but never actually went to see the place. I heard you must be there early in the morning to get the full experience.

      Hi Juha

      We went with Rat – a private tour operator. She is contactable at rat_bkk@hotmail.com – just tell her you heard of her service from PassportChop

      If you are just going to the floating market, you need not be up too early – i think we left Bangkok at about 9am. However I would recommend you to combine the tour with the Train Market (then you will need to leave earlier). Both the Floating and Train market provides lots of photo opportunities. See this for more info: http://www.passportchop.com/asia/thailand/maeklong-railway-market/

        Cool, thanks for the info. I definitely must go back to Thailand one of these days. Still so much left to see. But i actually never go with a tour. I find my own way, it’s much more slow of course, but i schedule enough time for everything. Travel slow 🙂 The train market looks kind of interesting 🙂

          Hi Juha – I am not a big fan of tours too. However public transport to the floating market and train market is not easy to arrange especially if you dont know Thai – thus I highly recommend that you take a local tour out to these places for convenience; Rat’s tour is a private tour so it is as good as hiring a taxi to these places – there is also no rush; you pay for the number of hours you use her tour services (as well as gasoline and expressway tolls).
