Bangkok Railway & Floating Markets Tour
Experience authentic daily life in Bangkok by visiting two unique local markets: explore the floating stalls of Damnoen Saduak and discover the train track shopping strip of Railway Market.
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'll take you back to the hotel, putting the experience to an end.
