TOUR DESCRIPTION


This Kanchanaburi and Floating Market journey will begin when we meet you at your Bangkok hotel on the day of your tour for an early start. We must start very early as the drive to the district of Damnoen Saduak takes a little over an hour and we want to catch all the colourful boats that are part of the charms of this morning market. Before reaching Damnoen Saduak, we will make a brief stop at the Mae Klong Train Market where visitors can witness the vendors of various goods set up their stalls across the train tracks of this fully functional railway line. You can wait and observe in amazement as the train pulls in the station and the vendors rush to quickly pull back their stalls, and push everything back out once the train has gone through. We’ll travel a bit further and stop at a small palm sugar home industry; here, locals make this stunning sugar out of the flower of this tree and you will be able to try some as well. Once at Damnoen Saduak, you will step aboard a chartered motorboat and commence the canal ride to the floating market; observe villagers go about their day along this waterway and get a glimpse of their daily routine. Once at the market, you will disembark the boat and begin exploring this colourful and photogenic market. Walk along the canals on wooden piers and buy treats as you explore this remarkable market; this destination offers a great opportunity to try out local food specialties. You can also decide to rent a paddleboat and discover the market like this, among the merchants directly on the water. We will then proceed with our drive to Kanchanaburi. Once arrived, you will visit the allied prisoners of war cemetery as well as the world famous Bridge Over The River Kwai. Train and history buffs will love the Thailand Burma Railway Center, home to an excellent museum and popular, which is part of other visits. After this, you will have the option to partake in a boat ride on the River Kwai and get a closer view of this beautiful river before making the return journey to Bangkok. the last item on the itinerary before we transfer you to your hotel in Bangkok is to choose the option to ride elephants.

Important Update - September 2013: Because of a schedule change to the regular timetable, it is unlikely that you will get to see the train come in the train market in Maeklong during this tour. This later arrival now interferes with our other visits, as this train has now been put further to a later time in the morning. (We are currently leaving the train in this itinerary but will be removing it if the normal train schedule is not resumed. A visit to the train market is still very much of interest).
