Bangkok Railway & Floating Markets Tour

  • 20 reviews | 276 travellers
    We were lucky that we had the same guide as the previous day „around the times in bangkok“ so we already had a very good relationship. The guide showed us the different markets and the different dishes to try in the future days. The great thing about the private tour was that he took so many pictures of us during the visit. Recommend for those who want to take a private tour without anyone else together.

Bangkok Railway & Floating Markets Tour

We'll pick you up from your hotel at the chosen time, and make our way to Mae Klong, home to one of the Bangkok area's most unique sights: the railway market. This surreal shopping experience is carefully orchestrated around the train schedules; vendors set up their stalls right on the edge of the tracks - some even on the tracks themselves - selling fresh produce, handmade fabrics and more. Like clockwork, when a train approaches, sellers and shoppers alike move themselves and their belongings aside before resuming business as usual as soon as it leaves - you have to see it to believe it!

Having enjoyed this incredible taste of Bangkok life - and hopefully sampled some local delicacies too - you'll set back off on your route. The next stop will be at a palm sugar plantation, where one of Thailand's most important ingredients is produced. You'll discover the sugar processing process and even taste some sweet local delicacies based on the crop.

Your tour will then continue onto the water, taking a boat trip through the narrow canals which have earned this area the nickname "the Venice of the East". It's here that you'll discover the floating market of Damnoean Saduak, one of the most famous markets in Thailand. You'll then climb back onto land and walk around the rest of the market, taking in the lively atmosphere of typical Bangkok daily life.

With free time to explore the market over, we will take you back to the hotel, putting the experience to an end.
