Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hub)

Pick up from hotel in Bangkok center will be at 06:45 hrs. Our first stop will be the amazing Mae Klong train market, one of the most unique markets in Thailand. Imagine a train going straight through a public market! It is exciting and fun to watch the vendors in a rush to fold and remove their goods and umbrellas away from the railway track while the train is passing by. On the way to market we will also make a short stop at the salt fields where people still make salt in a traditional way.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

After we visited the train market we continue to a boat pier where we board a typical Thai long-tail boat for a small ride through the canals before we reach the world famous floating market of Damnoen Saduak. This market is a place bustling with activity, crowded with boats loaded with fresh fruits and vegetables from surrounding orchards.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Don Kai Dee Benjarong Village

After lunch (included) we visit the Bencharong porcelain factory. Bencharong is a traditional form of Thai ceramics, well-known for its multi-color hand-painted patterns. The history of Bencharong can be traced back to the times of the ancient Thai Kingdom of Ayutthaya (1351-1767) where it was used as household items and decorations exclusively by the Royal Court and nobility. The word Bencharong derives from the Sanskrit panch rang meaning 'five colors'.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Wat Bang Kung

Wat Bang Kung is famous for the small chapel that is completely enclosed within the roots of a banyan tree called Bot Prok Po. It is almost like the tree itself is the pillars of the temple and that without the roots the chapel would fall down.
