Overview

We bet not everyone on the ‘Gram can attest to experiencing Bangkok like this. Imagine walking through a narrow market of local produce when you hear the deafening sound of a horn. Immediately see shop fronts drag their awnings back to just the precise inch that lets the public transportation through get a glimpse of what it’s like for local Thai to buy and sell at the Maeklong Railway Market. It’s best to arrive early and be prepared to walk to really gain the full experience.

“It's an experience not to be missed when you are in Bangkok. Cheaper to buy souvenirs here as compared to floating market.” – Chatelaine, Singapore

“If you are visiting Bangkok this is a must do experience. I only knew of this market from an internet video, but it has to be seen to be believed. It feels authentic Thai and doesn’t feel like a tourist trap.” – Jeremiahm, UK

“We were actually on the train that slowly rolled through the market and so we had a bird’s eye view of the tourists, locals and the stall canopies as they folded back into place.” – Warrnambool, Australia

While there, walk to the biggest and most colorful floating market in the city. The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market outside of Bangkok is a tourist destination that has claimed its fame from the orchid farm and coconut producers it visits along the way. Guides give guests the freedom to wander the winding tunnels of the market, but even from within the boat, visitors can feel the vibrancy of the floating market. Piles of vegetables and flowers line the stalls while bargains of the produce await.

    I have never seen a market build right beside the railway! And there still have real trains passing by, that´s soooo much fun! Very interesting way to experience local life, and you can also buy some local food and products in the floating market, if you want to feel the real Thai style life, you can never miss this one!
