Discover the heart and soul of Thailand through its bustling markets, a vivid tapestry of local life and culture. This full-day adventure introduces you to two iconic destinations: the renowned Maeklong Railway Market and the enchanting Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.
Start the day with an early morning pick-up, where you’ll board a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle before making your way to the first stop of the day, the Maeklong Railway Market. Here, something truly extraordinary happens daily. Vendors set up their vibrant stalls right on the active railway tracks, creating a vibrant and colorful maze of fresh produce, tantalizing street food, and locally crafted goods. Witness the incredible spectacle as the train approaches, and watch as vendors swiftly retract their awnings and goods to make way for the passing locomotive – a signature feature of the Maeklong Railway Market!
“The market itself is interesting enough as it is, but to see a train pass by millimetres in front of your face in an area where only seconds before a full market is operating scrappy. A fantastic experience.” – Anco, UK
After absorbing the market’s vibrant atmosphere, head to a local Sugar Palm Factory and discover the traditional craft of sugar palm cultivation. Learn how the locals create delectable desserts and sweet treats and even try your hand at crafting these delightful confections. You’ll also be given a variety of sweets to sample before boarding a boat that will take you to the next stop.
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is a testament to Thailand's rich cultural heritage and its timeless connection to its waterways. This iconic market is renowned for its intricate network of canals, colorful wooden boats, and a wide variety of street food and snacks. Soak up the vibrant sights and sounds, explore stalls brimming with souvenirs, and grab a bite to eat before heading back to your accommodation in Bangkok.
