Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is situated an hour outside of Bangkok. As the name suggests, this market consists of boats not shops. This is not a new addition but in fact is a continuation of a very old tradition. It is also called the Venice of Asia as it consists of interconnecting rivers and canals.
