Discover the most famous places in Bangkok in one day with this Railway Market, Floating Market & Ayutthaya Ruins Tour. Visit Maeklong, Damnoen Saduak and the symbolic historical ruins.
Railway Market, Floating Market & Ayutthaya Ruins Tour
We'll pick you up from your hotel in the centre of Bangkok to commence the one and a half hour journey southwest to Maeklong Railway Market.
When we arrive you'll see how the bustling market sits on train tracks that are still in use to deliver goods around Thailand. If you're lucky you'll have the chance to see how vendors move their varied products out of the way for the trains to fly past.
Next, we'll visit Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. This market winds its way around a maze of canals where local vendors sell their array of products in traditional boats. We'll board a boat and start to shop in true Thai style.
After having free time to eat and enjoy the local cuisine, we'll head to the Ayutthaya archaeological complex. It was originally the Siam kingdom capital from the 14th to the 18th century, and an important centre for trade. We'll visit three main temples, Wat Mahathat, Wat Yai Chai Mongkol and Wat Pra Sri Sanphet. The guide will explain the importance of each temple as we admire the Buddha statues that decorate the location.
The tour will end returning to Bangkok at 6 pm.
