If you have a chance to visit the charming province of Ratchaburi, don’t forget to partake in one of its primary activities: Shopping! You will love its rich variety of unique local Food and products with delicious flavours, high quality, and reasonable prices. The province is also home to a number of markets for you to explore including local fresh markets and some of Thailand’s famous Floating Markets. Here are two of Ratchaburi’s recommended shopping places – don’t miss out on the fun!
Located in front of Wat Rat Charoen Tham in Damnoen saduak District, Ladplee Floating Market was established long before the more well-known Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Nowadays, the old Ladplee Floating Market has been renovated and is ready to welcome visitors with satisfying local Foods and products and is one of the province’s places to shop for souvenirs.
Ordinary stalls are too basic for this market…instead you will be buying goods from boats in the Canal! Popular souvenirs range from handcrafted straw hats to seasonal fruits and vegetables. You’ll love this warm and lovely atmosphere of this local floating market.
