Bangkok: Floating Market Tour by Bike and Boat with Lunch
- Explore one of Bangkok's floating markets
- Take a ride on the canal in a traditional teak wood boat
- Have lunch next to the river at the floating market
Once you arrive at Lad Mayom Floating Market, take some time to explore on your own and see the vibrant stalls selling everything from local Thai food to traditional Thai clothes. Afterwards have lunch and order a dish cooked on a tiny wooden boat anchored just next to your table.
Next the bikes get loaded onto a traditional Thai teak wood boat and it’s time for a canal trip. While on the boat you’ll see the canal side lifestyle with its colorful scenery. If you’re lucky you might get a glimpse of a water monitor sunning itself on the banks of the river. The boat will make a stop at an orchid farm on the banks of the canal before dropping you off at a local temple where you will continue your ride.
Your last stop will be Baan Silapin, an old Thai house on the banks of the canal which is now a gallery and puppet theater. From here you will make your way back to where the ride started.
