Full description

Discover the way Bangkok used to be as you travel approximately 100 kilometers outside of Bangkok.

Visit Damnoen Saduak Floating market with its many colors, flavors and exotic fragrances. Start with a scenic ride on a narrow longtail-speedboat, passing riverside villages and fruit plantations, before entering the vibrant market. There will be many photo opportunities along the way and on the colorful market on the water.

Afterwards visit the tiny unique temple of Wat Bang Kung, it appears almost like an jungle temple with its roots embracing the building. The temple dates back to 1765 from the Ayuthaya period and was once a military camp.

Then proceed to the Railway Market in Samut Songkhram. The market stalls are literally on the railway tracks, so when a train approaches, vendors scramble to clear away their produces from the tracks. A truly unique experience.
