The tour to floating market and the famous railway market


The tour leaves Bangkok early and drive west to Rachaburi province, to visit the most famous and traditional floating market in Thailand, the Damnoen Saduak floating market. Prior getting to the market, we will stop at a boat pier to take 30 minute long tail boat ride on the canal to the market so you can enjoy watching the way of life of local people along the way. Continue on visiting the Maklong Railway Market in Samut Songkram which the highlight of the railway market is food stall vendors have only a few minutes to pull back their shade to make way for train before the train approaching the station. It would be crazy and scene that you have not seen before. After lunch, visit an unseen temple, Wat Bangkung, where is must see for visitors.
