tour details

Escape the buzz of Bangkok and discover about Thai life outside of the capital in the surrounding countryside. The area is famous for Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and the Maeklong Train Market. We visit these two famous sites in a different way to other travel companies, offering a unique excursion.

tour description

Early morning, we board a local train into the famous Mae Klong railway market. When the train comes through, the goods from the market are moved from the rails in lightning speed. After the train has sped by, everything is moved back within a few seconds. We next visit a local enterprise that produces palm sugar, before embarking on a long-tail boat and ride from the small side canals into the Mae Klong River, passing traditional style houses on both banks and local life. We visit the famous Damnoen Saduak floating market (the floating market you see in most Bangkok postcards) and visit parts where there is still authentic charm.

After learning about Khao Lam (sticky rice cooked in a bamboo tube), you will visit Baan Bang Noi, where you can roll up your sleeves and help to prepare and cook different Thai dishes. Converse in the relaxing surroundings as you take a rest and enjoy the meal you have prepared. After satisfying your hunger, you will explore the surrounding orchards by foot, reached via a short bicycle ride. Return to Bangkok in the middle of the afternoon.
