Full description
Start the tour by meeting your small group at one of the two meeting points, or get picked up at your hotel if you upgrade to the private tour option. Leave Bangkok around 7 AM by air-conditioned van, and get to know your Spanish-speaking guide and learn some insights about Thailand on the 1.5-hour ride to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Upon arrival in Ratchaburi province, board a longtail boat and enjoy the ride to the floating market. Don't forget to take a photo or video of this unique experience. Once there, immerse yourself in the floating market for 1 hour. See locals selling their food from paddle boats, and shop for food, snacks, or souvenirs right from the boat. Spend your leisure time walking around the market with no rush and try authentic Thai food, if you like. After exploring the market, get back on the van and drive to the famous Maeklong Railway Market centered on the railway. Wander around with your guide waiting for the iconic moment when the local train comes at 11:10 AM. As the train approaches, watch the awnings and shop fronts get moved back from the rails, and then replaced once the train has passed. Make sure to have your camera ready as the train will not wait for you. Then, gather with your group and board the train to be ready to leave Mae Klong station at 11:30 AM. Take in the views of the rice fields and local way of life on the railway side. Arrive at Ban Na Kwang Railway Station at 11:57 AM and hop on the air-conditioned van for the return trip to Bangkok. Call it a day and get dropped off around 1:30 PM.

El mercado sobre las vías del tren espectacular, nuestra guía Pawan (espero que se escriba así, si no, perdóname tita Pau) fue una guía excepcional, nos indicó todo incluso de cosas que se veían por la ventana en el trayecto de ida en la mini van. nos echó fotos, se portó de 12 sobre 10. respecto al mercado flotante me decepcionó mucho. por culpa del covid hay muchísimos puestos cerrados, estaban limpiando y preparando, pero en diciembre de 2022 no merece ni la pena ir al damnoen saduak, nos dieron una vuelta por 4 puestos y luego por canales vacíos (ya que estaba todo cerrado) los atascos de botes y las 2000 tienda-barco flotantes solo son una expectativa que no encontrarás (al menos a fecha de este comentario)
