From Bangkok: Amphawa Floating Markets and Firefly Boat Tour

2. From Bangkok: Amphawa Floating Markets and Firefly Boat Tour

The markets of Thailand are some of the country’s most quintessential experiences; they give you a lively peek inside the more traditional culture of a country that often lives by water (or in this case, by the railroad tracks as well). On this full-day guided tour, you'll be taken to the most iconic markets on the outskirts of Bangkok, ending with a relaxing firefly boat tour to wind down from the day’s excitement. Maeklong Train Market is a fresh market situated right by a well-worn railroad. Watch the vendors expertly close and open their awnings to make room as the trains pass by. Wat Bang Kung is a striking Buddhist temple engulfed by the roots of a massive Banyan Tree. Learn about its bloody battle history and see the Golden Buddha inside. Located on the Amphawa canal, the Amphawa Floating Market is one of Thailand's more popular floating markets. Visit this riverside market and see vendors selling delicious treats like sweets and seafood, or browse some of the shophouses and restaurants. After sunset, when the lights have dimmed, you'll wind down with a relaxing river cruise. Your boat will take you a little further out where it is dark enough to see the fireflies, before heading back to your accommodations at 9:00 PM, ending a day of simple pleasures and tastes with the comforting sight of these lightning bugs.

Ancient City Muang Boran Ticket with Private Transfer Option

3. Ancient City Muang Boran Ticket with Private Transfer Option

Ancient Siam (also known as Ancient City, Mueang Boran) is a park constructed under the patronage of Lek Viriyaphant and spreading over 200 acres (0.81 km2) in the shape of Thailand. The founder's original idea was to create a golf course with miniatures of Thailand's historically significant structures spread around the course. During his research, he found most structures severely damaged and decided instead to create new miniatures, to save the original structures when possible, or to re-create them full size or scaled down. Ancient Siam is dubbed as the world's largest outdoor museum. Located in Samut Prakan province, the 320-hectare "city" features 116 structures of Thailand's famous monuments and architectural attractions. The grounds of Ancient Siam correspond roughly to the shape of the Kingdom, with the monuments lying at their correct places geographically. Some of the buildings are life-size replicas of existing or former sites, while others are scaled down. The replicas were constructed with the assistance of experts from the National Museum to ensure historical accuracy. Outstanding works include the former Grand Palace of Ayutthaya (destroyed in the Burmese invasion of 1767), Phimai Sanctuary in Nakhon Ratchasima, and Wat Khao Phra Viharn on the Cambodian border. You can select to explore this remarkable outdoor museum by tram, walk or bike for free. Alternatively, pay a little extra to get the golf cart, and drive around to save time and enjoy more.

We had a really nice Guide who gave us a lot of information and she teached us a lot about the Thai culture. We wanted to see the canals, so she called a boat for us and gave us the information about the prices and we could decide if it is worth the money. We also had a lot of Thai food in local markets, super cheap and very good. Thank you, would do this Tour again!!

Such a fun experience! The guide was so friendly, funny and knowledgeable about everywhere we went. I think this day was one of my favorite days of my entire vacation! Even the hour drive was relaxing and I was able to relax at the end of the night. Absolutely worth it!

Our guide Oil allowed us to see so much more of Bangkok in one day than we ever could've hoped to manage ourselves. We would recommend her to anyone, she is kind, smart, knowledgeable, and a great asset to your company!

All in all a fantastic day. It doesn't feel too long as it's fairly relaxed, even if it's lots of sights.

Rex was a fantastic guide! Very friendly and informative. Would highly recommend!
