Full description

Depart Bangkok and journey southwest for about an hour past the sea salt farms and local villages on the side of the road. Arrive at Maeklong Railway Market and learn how the stalls of fresh seafood built on the train tracks respond every time a train passes through. Continue to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, via a coconut farm if time permits. Immerse yourself in the everyday hustle and bustle as the locals buy their food and household goods. Ride through the market by boat, and try your hand at haggling for a bargain.

Select the private option to also have an experience at a local farm. Learn how to harvest coconut and take a rewarding drink from it.

An all-round successful day trip, about 6 hours. Pick up punctually directly at the hotel. Great guide (Steve), perfect tour guide. Provided us with water and local treats (no extra charge) at the markets all day and shines with his knowledge of Bangkok and Thailand. He also takes great photos of his guests. Also the car (Nissan SUV) and the driver were great! Full recommendation

Picked up at our hotel on time and left at the end of our day to another hotel we booked for that night. Steve our guide was explaining us everything we needed to know. The train market is really nice but try to go early in the morning to avoid too many tourists and the floating market is nice too but we were expecting a little more local life than just a tourists souvenir/food/extra activities set up. Coconut sugar farm was nice too. It’s worth if you spend more than 3 days in bangkok otherwise there are many Day and noght markets in the city that are also nice.

Very friendly and loving care from Gigi (guide) and your golf driver. Both of them fulfilled all of our wishes and said a lot about their country. They also went out of their way to look after our little child and, especially when it came to the train market, they were very careful. Very comfortable mini-van including cold drinks.
