Full description
In the morning, meet your private guide at your hotel and head to Wong Wiang Yai Train Station. From this station, travel by third-class train with wooden seats. Along the way, you'll see many paddy fields and the homes of local Thai people. Once arrived in Mahachai, take a boat trip to a fishing community and ride a local tuk tuk, or rickshaw. After lunch at a local restaurant, board a boat which will bring you to Baan Leam. From there, travel by train to Maeklong where you will visit Thailand’s largest fresh seafood market. When you reach the Mae Klong Railway Train Market, watch the busy locals buying and selling their products. Enjoy the spectacle of how the market transforms when a train passes: listen out for the piercing siren which signals for the shoppers to disappear and the stallholders to whip away their produce. Marvel at how the vendors hold on to the poles supporting their awnings to make way for the train to pass. See how the train traveling at about 15mph almost touches the fruits and everything else at the market as it squeezes through. After visiting all of the sights, transfer back to your hotel in Bangkok by around 5:00 PM.

    Our lovely guide Ben enhanced the trip, with her local knowledge. Everything was very organised and the chosen place for lunch was some of the best food we'd eaten in the area. Its a long day, but enjoyable to get out of Bangkok and see the local countryside. Would recommend.

    Sehr zu empfehlen 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 Toller Ausflug, unsere Tour Guide Jill hat sich super um uns gekümmert. Wir waren tatsächlich nur zu zweit 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 Viele Eindrücke über das Leben der Thais gewonnen. Waren mit den öffentlichen Transportmitteln unterwegs. Der erste Zugmarkt Mahatchai kaum Touristen, fanden wir fast noch besser als der mittlerweile sehr bekannte Zugmarkt Maeklong.

    Nous avons passé une superbe journée accompagnés de notre guide. Elle a été aux petits soins toute la journée et nous a fait vivre des expériences inoubliables. Nous avons découvert des spécialités locales que nous n’aurions pas tester sans elle. Je recommande vraiment !
