BANGKOK FLOATING MARKET..
BANGKOK FLOATING MARKET AND TRAIN MARKET TOUR
Early in the morning around 07.00 a.m. your private Thai guide and driver with luxury van will pick you up at your hotel for this Bangkok floating market day tour. After about 1 hour and 15 minutes drive you will arrive at the first market of the day. This is the crazy but exciting train market. Whenever the train passes this market, all the shops will fold up their roofs and collect their goods and everybody will jump aside quickly. Once the train has passed it just takes 5 seconds and it seems like nothing has ever happened! The most famous Bangkok floating market is Damnoen Saduak floating market. But in the weekends there is also Tha Kha floating market. Both are just about 15 minutes away from the train market. Both floating markets are great places to explore Thai market culture. We will make sure you have the best experience on either a long tail boat, or a rowing boat to let you enjoy the countryside and views along the way.
BANGKOK FLOATING MARKET AND TRAIN MARKET
The local Thai people that you will see on the boats in the canals are selling lots of fruits and typical Thai foods. This is a great place to taste some noodlesoup or some fried chicken as well. It’s all mouthwatering and it should all be enjoyed and tasted by you once you’re there. So once you enjoyed the sights and tastes of these delicious fruits and foods, it’s time for an early but real Thai style lunch which will be another superb moment on your day. After lunch we will let you decide where to go next. You can choose to get on and ride a majestic elephant for about 20 minutes to get a feel of an old Thai tradition. But we can also visit the lesser known Erawan Museum which houses precious ancient Buddha statues and artifacts. This is a real masterpiece for people who love architecture and Buddhist statues. It is also not known by most visitors to Thailand so it will take you to a place not visited by many tourist yet.
BANGKOK WEEKEND FLOATING MARKET
During the weekends there is also another Bangkok floating market. This is Lat Mayom floating market and it’s inside Bangkok city. This market can be visited in the morning and then you have more time to explore other highlights in Bangkok.

TOUR BOOKING FORM
Tommy was a great guide for the floating market. He first took us to the local area. It was much less crowded than the tourist area. We tried some soup and coconut ice cream from the local market. It was fun to get served from a longtail boat and to eat in a longtail boat. We then went to the more crowded touristy area. It was fun to look at all the activity around. Tommy offered to help with purchasing if we wanted to buy anything, but we had fun taking pictures and people watching.
We had an amazing day trip 100 km far from Bangkok. We visited very nice sites such as the coconut fields, the swimming markets, the train market. We experienced how to ride on an elephant, how it feels to snuggle with a snake or a baby tiger!! What made the tour something special was the nice and warm contact with Penny, our guide. She told us many extra details and stories about the country and its people. She is a really nice woman and we had a very pleasant time together. Our driver also was very attentive and drove us resp. picked us up wherever we wanted and moreover provided us with fresh drinks and refreshing tissues at any time. This tour is more than recommendable and more than worth the money. Although, home again, we are somewhat still caught in this extraordinary trip.
Had the most enjoyable time in Bangkok touring with Angmo. We visited all the sites, experienced some of the best tastes (Thai Fried Chicken and iced coffee!!!), had some serious laughs, and made some incredible memories. Best Day Tour ever! Angmo and our driver were so attentive, fun, and knowledgeable. Thanks Angmo & Thai Sabai Life!
