This half-day tour from Bangkok brings you to two amazing local markets that are like no other!
Maeklong Railway Market
Also known as Train Umbrella Market, or The Folding Umbrella Market. See how the market gives a way to trains that pass through the market 4 times a day!
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
See how local people has been trading their products on paddle boats for more than 150 years.
06.15-7.00AM Pick up from your hotel or meeting point in the following areas: Khaosan, Silom, Sathorn, Sukhumvit (Soi 1-24), Asoke, Pratunam.
07.30AM Depart from Bangkok to the Train Market (The Folding Umbrella Market). Probably the most exciting fresh market in the world as trains will run through the center of the market 8 times a day. Then depart for Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.
09.30AM Arrive long tail boat pier, ride on the long tail boat (10 minutes) to the main part of the market. Walk around the market to see local handcrafts products, or ride on a paddle boat (30 minutes, pay extra 150 THB)
11.00AM Depart from the floating market.
01.00PM Send you back to Khaosan Road Only, in order to control time. (Khao San Road is a famous destination of backpacker)
This is a join tour, operator will be picking up each guest in order, so please kindly wait patiently at your hotel. If waiting for too long, please contact operator immediately.
This itinerary may be subject to adjustments by the tour operator according to traffic and/or weather conditions.
Some vendor at the market may convince you to buy their goods at "tourist price". Please feel free to negotiate for the price you feel comfortable. You don't need to buy any goods, actually.
Everything was organized perfectly. The only thing I regret doing was paying the 150 Baht tickets for the paddle boat as it was not worth the money and time. This however is not organized by Click2Go and so they don't have any responsibility for this
a good and well organized tour. thank you
Bellissima escursione, tutto perfetto. Sono venuti a prenderci all'hotel in orario, il mini-van trasporta circa 15 persone ed è dotato di aria condizionata. Viaggio comodo e piacevole. Prima tappa al mercato galleggiante dove non è incluso il giro in barca a remi (la più caratteristica) per lo shopping ai mercatini di souvenir lungo le sponde del fiume. Ma costa solo 150 Bath e ne vale la pena anche se non comprate niente, solo per la bellezza del paesaggio. È invece incluso un breve tragitto con una barca più grande a motore su un canale in mezzo alla natura e ai villaggi locali. Mercato lungo la ferrovia molto bello e caratteristico, anche se con moltissimi turisti. Escursione consigliatissima per il prezzo e la comodità degli spostamenti!!
Muy bien tardaron un poco en recogernos.pero bien. Añadir 150 baths para el viaje en bote, ya lo pone en la reserva. Muy recomendable. Es muy turístico, hay que tener en cuenta que en el mercado flotante tienen animales vivos NO HACER FOTOS! NO FOMENTEIS ESE TURISMO! El resto divertido y muy recomendable!
Waiting time is a bit longer in 7 bolder but overall okay
Too little time, just visited the train market for 20 minutes
