Arrive at Maeklong Railway Market and learn how the stalls of fresh seafood built on the train tracks respond every time a train passes through. Continue to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, via a coconut farm if time permits. Immerse yourself in the everyday hustle and bustle as the locals buy their food and household goods. Ride through the market by boat, and try your hand at haggling for a bargain.

An all-round successful day trip, about 6 hours. Pick up punctually directly at the hotel. Great guide (Steve), perfect tour guide. Provided us with water and local treats (no extra charge) at the markets all day and shines with his knowledge of Bangkok and Thailand. He also takes great photos of his guests. Also the car (Nissan SUV) and the driver were great! Full recommendation

The tour was one of the best and most authentic excursions we have done in and around Bangkok. In addition to the arrival of a train in the middle of the market, we were able to marvel at the floating market directly from a small longboat and sip the coconut juice straight from its shell. The tour guide Steve speaks excellent English, so it was no problem at all to follow his explanations. With twinkling eyes, he chats from the Thai sewing box, explains local street food and lets people pass a treat here and there. We have rarely seen such an enthusiastic tour guide. Steve was welcoming and kept making the whole crew laugh. Again any time! Great!
