1. Damnoen Saduak Floating Market 6-Hour Tour

Depart from Bangkok at 7:30 am, and head to Ratchaburi Province, home of the famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.

Explore the house and its surrounding area, which is home to many different animals living on the coconut plantation. Continue your trip by boarding a paddle boat for a ride along narrow canals to the floating market. See the local houses lining the canals and take a quick glance at their way of living, while you pass by. When you arrive at the market, see the amazing array of vendors in their boats, selling fresh products, from fruits and vegetables to prepared dishes. Explore the floating market at your leisure for about an hour and take time to try some authentic Thai foods, such as Pad Thai, Mango Sticky Rice, Boat Noodles or Coconut Ice Cream sold along the canal.

Bangkok: Railway Market and Floating Market Private Tour

2. Bangkok: Railway Market and Floating Market Private Tour

Experience Thailand's unique market culture on this unique tour. Start with a drive to the railway market, located about 2 hours from Bangkok. Watch as vendors set up their goods along active railway tracks, with fresh produce, cooking supplies and more all lined up a mere few inches from the track's edge. See what happens when the train comes through: vendors gather up their things and lower their canopies and step aside as the train travels right through the middle of the market, getting back to business as soon as it has departed. Afterwards, continue on a short drive to a palm sugar plantation, where you’ll visit the house of a villager who still makes palm sugar the traditional way. Next, board a small boat for a ride through narrow village canals, to reach the famous floating market of Damnoen Saduak. Get off the boat here and walk around to explore more of the market. Around noon, head back to Bangkok and return to the meeting point which is right next to BTS (Skytrain) station National Stadium. Your local guide will be happy to give you directions back to your accommodation or to other sites you should see.

Could not go to the Thai house due to COVID but instead was able to go to Maeklong train market which was really awesome. Floating market was really cool and bus tour guide was extremely nice and had a lot of good info to share. Overall amazing experience.

Everything went without problems. We were picked up in time, got free water and overall had great experience. We did a lot of pictures and bought tasty goodies.

Very pleasant guide, beautiful tour. At the market, make sure that the prices are not excessive and bargain well. We would do it again and again :)

Nice experience, it wasn't crowded but you could still get the feel of the experience before covid. I learned a lot during the tour.

The Maeklong Railway Market was well worth seeing, the Floating Market was a bit empty, but I was able to buy the last souvenirs.
