Full description
Spend a full day visiting popular markets and famous temples in Bangkok on a private tour, complete with private, air-conditioned car and personal guide. Start with a visit to the Maeklong railway market and explore the stalls that are actually set up on the tracks.

Make a quick stop at a coconut farm to learn about the production of coconut sugar, then continue to the vibrant and colorful Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Enjoy a boat ride on a small long boat through the market as you see local vendors paddle their boats to sell things along the canals.

Return to Bangkok for lunch at a local restaurant before visiting the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. Wat Pho is home to a 46-meter-long and 15-meter-high Buddha statue and the first open university of Thailand.

Excellent day ! You can see the essentials in just one day.

Having only one day in transit in Bangkok, we managed to see the essentials, very impressive must-see markets, and the main monuments. Extra guide who adapted the timetable, to our request and even, therefore, extended his day to do the whole program, very caring for us. Program that we particularly recommend! We loved this day (completed with sunset at the Mahanakhon rooftop)
