💎 Why we love it ?
This tour is an exciting experience for young and old! You will be picked up at your hotel and then drive to the outskirts of Bangkok. You have to take some time to explore a local market that is called The Train Market. Vendors display their goods on the track of the train and before the train comes, they need to remove their products – you will await the arrival of the train and see a busy activity of local people. We continue then to the boat station and take a long tail boat to the heart of Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. From there, we change to a paddle boat and you will mingle with the merchants and taste some local foods. Great place for taking pictures – we later continue for a local lunch and we can stop at a Temple before returning back!

We had an exceptional time. The tour guide was a very kind and the driver was amazing. The boatride to the market was so fun. Everything was very well organized. Thank you
What a lovely place to visit. The boat ride along all the canals gave a nice preview of the whole market place. It is huge market place but no bargaining is accepted. However, there was something awful, which was seafood smell along the food stalls in the market place.
