TOUR DESCRIPTION


This day will begin when our team collects you from your hotel in Bangkok for an early start to this charming and colourful market in Damnoen Saduak. An early start is necessary since the ride to Samut Songkram takes a little more than one hour and the colourful boats at this market are not to be missed. On the way to Damnoen Saduak floating market, we will make a stop at the Mae Klong Train Market; witness market vendors sell their goods directly across the train tracks of a functional railway line. Be patient and witness the amazing scene of merchants rushing to retract their stalls as the scheduled train comes in the station! Before proceeding to Damnoen Saduak market, we will make one more stop at the wonderful palm sugar production. Taste the stunning sugar being made here as well as other candies produced from palm sugar. At the village of Damnoen Saduak , you will step aboard a privately chartered motorboat which will bring you through a series of canals, enabling you to witness how locals interact with their water environment. We will reach the market by boat and you will then be free to walk around the area; you can explore the market and even flag down vendors on their boats carrying various produce. You can also enjoy the paddle boat option and really witness the action from another perspective. After you market visit, we will return to Bangkok. If an elephant ride is something you would like to experience, please let your tour guide know and he or she will be happy to bring you to an elephant camp for a 30-minute ride. We will have lunch immediately upon our return to Bangkok. After lunch you will need to make the choice of visiting either Wat Po OR the city’s most important temple and palace complex, The Grand Palace. For those visiting The Grand palace this remarkable structure was constructed as a royal residence and through the years it has seen many additions including the beautiful Wat Prah Kaew which is home to the Emerald Buddha, a stunning Buddha image made from a single piece of jade! For those or choose to visit Wat Po they will be treated to one of the capitals largest reclining Buddha statues which is housed amongst the plethora of beautiful Buddhist temple buildings. The last visit of the tour will be the magnificent and iconic Wat Arun, one of Thailand’s most famous temples. You have the opportunity to get close to the temple and even climb part of the Pagoda and take in the view over the neighboring Chao Phraya River. Following your last visit you will be escorted back to your Bangkok hotel.

Clarification: In this programme you can choose to visit Wat Po OR The Grand Palace. Unfortunatley there is not enough time to visit both. Entrance fee to Wat Po is included in the tour price below. If you want to take the Grand Palace option then we ask you to pay 400 baht/person to cover the extra cost of the Grand Palace ticket entrance.

Important Update - Sept 2013:

Because of a change to the train timetable it is unlikely that you get to see the train go through the Train Market at Mae Klong on this tour. Officials have put back the first arrival of the train at a later time and this now interferes with our visit to the Damnoen Saduak floating market. (We are currently keeping the visit to the train market in this itinerary, as it is still an interesting visit). In the event that the timetable does resume its previous times, we will move the train from this description. Sorry for any inconvenience.
