The Samnoen Saduak Floating Market is every sat/sun and is open from 7am-4pm. For the last 20 years the markets have moved away from a traditional farmers market towards tourism.

Due  to modernization, roads, scooter etc the canal systems are no longer the Major source of transport.

Truthfully, it was very touristy and still worth seeing. The canal system was packed with wooden canoes, all of which were full of fruits, vegetables, food vendors etc. It was a brief window into Bangkok's past.
