    tour details

    Thailand’s most famous floating market is Damnoen Saduak, about 110 kilometres from Bangkok. This buzzing market is at its best in the early morning before the crowds arrive and the heat rises. After arriving at Samut Songkram province, you’ll take a short trip by long-tail boat to the floating market. For amateur photographers, there are plenty of photo opportunities. You are free to walk around the market or hop on a row boat (not included) to get even closer to the action. We’ll then continue to Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo. Here you can watch an elephant show, demonstrations of elephants at work, and re-enactments of ancient battle scenes. There are also opportunities to see elephants playing football, spectacular crocodile wrestling shows, a magic show and an orchid nursery.
