TOUR DESCRIPTION


This tour will begin when we collect you from your Bangkok hotel for your early start to this colourful market. An early start is essential as the drive to Damnoen Saduak is a little over one hour and we do not want to miss the colourful boats of this morning market. On the route to Damnoen Saduak we will stop by at Mae Klong Train Market where you witness the market vendors goods set up across the tracks of a working railway line. Just wait and see the amazing scene unfold when the scheduled train passes through this market! Before Damnoen Saduak we will make a short stop at a wonderful little Home industry producing palm sugar. You can see the sugar being made as well as try some of the sweet candy produced from the palm sugar. At Damnoen Saduak you well board a privately chartered motorboat where we will travel some of the canals on the way to the market and you can get a glimpse of real canal side life. we will disembark the boat at the market and you will then be free to explore the market, you can wander up and down the canals flagging down boats and vendors as you please or take the paddle boat option where you can really get amongst the action on the canals. Following the market we will make our way back to Bangkok. On route if you want to ride an elephant then just let you guide know as we will be happy to stop for you at the elephant camp for a half hour ride. On arrive in Bangkok will have lunch before you can choose to visit Wat Po OR visit Bangkok's most important Palace and temple complex. If you visit Wat Po you will get to see a plethora of Buddha statues, temple buildings and Wat Po's highlight which is the giant reclining Buddha. For those who visit the The Grand Palace (extra charge applies), the Grand Palace was built as a Royal residence and over the years many additions have been made including the stunning Wat Prah Kaew which houses the Emerald Buddha carved out of a single piece of Jade! The last stop of the day will be Wat Arun one of Bangkok's most iconic temples. You will be able to get close up and climb part way up the Pagoda to get a panoramic view over the Chao Phraya. At the end of the day we will transfer you back to your Bangkok hotel.

Clarification: In the above programme you can choose to visit Wat Po OR The Grand Palace. Unfortunatley there is not enough time to visit both. Entrance fee to Wat Po is included in the tour price below. If you want to take the Grand Palace option then we ask you to pay 400 baht/person to cover the extra cost of the Grand Palace ticket entrance.

Important Update - Sept 2013: Due to a train timetable change it is unlikely that you will get to see the train passing through The Mae Klong Train Market on this tour. The train has been put back to a later time and now clashes with a visit to the floating market (For now we are leaving a visit to the market in the itinerary as the market itself is still of interest) If the timetable does not return to its previous times we will be moving the train from this tour description. Sorry for any disappointment.

Important: Please read Grand Palace Dress Code below
