Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hub), Si Champa Alley, Samut Songkhram 75000 Thailand

First, we head down to the authentic rural Maeklong Station Market, a vibrant place to see the various fresh fruits and vegetable produces from the region displayed here.


Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Damnoun Saduak, Ratchaiburi, Damnoen Saduak 70130 Thailand

After Maeklong, we will visit the famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market which is seen as one of Bangkok’s icons.
It dates back to 1866 when King Rama IV ordered that a canal 32 kilometers long be dug at Damnoen Saduak to connect the Mae Klong and Tacheen Rivers (his reason for doing so lies in the fact that the quality of the soil on the banks of the canal is excellent for growing many kinds of fruits and vegetables). The Floating Market is an ideal place for tourists to see the old style and traditional way of selling and buying fruits, vegetables and other from small boats. Tourists will also be able to see traditional Thai houses and the way locals use boats in their everyday lives.
During your visit, there will be lots of activity and bargaining is part of the fun of the sale. The market’s popularity among visitors has grown over the years and outside the traditional means of selling and trading food and drinks, souvenir shops around the market are home to some of the best local handicraft one can buy.


Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Pass By: Wat Phra Pathom Chedi, T.Phra Pathom Chedi, Amphoe Mueang, Nakhon Pathom 73000 Thailand

Before heading back to Bangkok, we admire the largest pagoda in Southeast Asia; the Phra Pathom Chedi in Nakorn Pathom. This golden-tiled dome of the Chedi towers almost 116 meters into the air.
