Tour:

Markets and Thai Community lifestyle (full day)

Bangkok | 1 day | from $ 86,-
You travel into the famous Mae Klong railway market by train and visit a local enterprise to learn about the production of palm sugar. Immerse yourself in the iconic Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, explore narrow canals and local communities by longtail boat.  Than you visit an orchard and try your hand in the kitchen for lunch at a homestay.
Escape the buzz of Bangkok and discover about Thai life outside of the capital in the surrounding countryside. The area is famous for Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and the Maeklong Train Market.  You visit these two famous sites in a different way to other travel companies, offering a unique excursion.
Early morning, board a local train to experience the famous Mae Klong railway market. When the train comes through, the goods from the market are moved from the rails in lightning speed. After the train has sped by, everything is moved back within a few seconds. Next up, visit a local enterprise that produces palm sugar and learn about the process involved. Afterwards, board a longtail boat and ride along the narrow side canals out into the Mae Klong River, passing traditional style houses on both banks and witnessing local life. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the famous Damnoen Saduak floating market (the floating market you see in most Bangkok postcards) and explore parts where an authentic charm remains. The market is a perfect photo opportunity.
After the market, it is time to cook and eat. Enjoy learning about Khao Lam (sticky rice cooked in a bamboo tube) and then visit Baan Bang Noi, where you can roll up your sleeves and help to prepare and cook different Thai dishes. Relax and chat as you enjoy the meal you have prepared. After satisfying your hunger, take a short ride in the sidecar of a motorcycle to the surrounding orchards and spend time wandering around them. Return to Bangkok in the middle of the afternoon.
