TOUR DESCRIPTION


Visiting Bangkok is not complete without visiting the world famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. This half-day tour will start when our team collects you from your hotel in Bangkok for an early start for the trip to this colourful market located about one hour from the city. An early start is necessary as this is a morning market and we want to catch all the colourful boats and the hustle and bustle. On the way to Damnoen Saduak, we will make a stop at Mae Klong Train Market. Here, you will witness market vendors set up their produce directly across the tracks of a functioning railway line. Wait and watch in amazement as an extraordinary scene unfolds when the passenger train rides through this market! Before reaching Damnoen Saduak, we will stop for a short visit at a wonderful little Home industry that produces delicious palm sugar. You will get to see how this sugar being produced and also try some of the delectable candy made from the palm sugar. Upon your arrival at Damnoen Saduak, you will step aboard a privately chartered long tail motorboat on which you will travel through narrow canals leading to the floating market and you will witness the life on this charming waterway. Once at the market, you will disembark the motorboat and will be free to walk through the market; wander up and down the areas surrounding the canals flagging down vendors on their boats loaded with produce. You can even take the paddleboat option to get amongst the bustling action on the canals. Once our floating market visit over, we will board the awaiting transportation and return to Bangkok. This tour will finish when we escort you back to your hotel. Optional on this tour is also an elephant ride; you may opt for this as we return to Bangkok.

Important Update - Sept 2013: Because of a change to the train timetable, it is unlikely that the train will be passing through the market in Mae Klong on this tour. The train’s first arrival time has been changed to a later time and now interferes with activities at the floating market. (We are leaving the visit to the train market in the itinerary, as it is still an interesting activity.) If the previous timetable does not resume, we will be removing the train from the tour description. We apologize for any inconvenience.
