Damnoen Saduak (Thai: ดำเนินสะดวก, lit. Comfortable travel) is a district (Amphoe) in central Thailand in the province Ratchaburi. The central town is most famous because of its floating market held every day till noon on a khlong not far from the district office. However as it has become a prime tourist attraction of the Bangkok vicinity the market has lost its authenticity.
Neighboring districts are (from the east clockwise) Ban Phaeo of Samut Sakhon Province, Mueang Samut Songkhram and Bang Khonthi of Samut Songkhram Province, Mueang Ratchaburi, Photharam and Bang Phae of Ratchaburi Province.
The district is subdivided into 13 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 105 villages (muban). There are two townships (thesaban tambon), Damnoen Saduak and Si Don Phai. The non-municipal area is administrated by 11 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
