The experience

-Highlights-

・Get an up-close experience with authentic Thai 'shopping culture' at the Maeklong Railway Market (aka Risky Market) and Amphawa Floating Market.
・Purchase the sweetest fruits, freshest vegetables and authentic Thai crafts, while learning more about the area's culture and history from your English-speaking guide.
・Take in charming local villages during a motorboat ride on the iconic Amphawa River.
・Treat yourself with this great value deal to visit two of Bangkok's must-visit sights, with hotel pick-up and drop-off included.



-What You Can Expect-

Leave from downtown Bangkok on a journey to two of the capital's most iconic sights: the Maeklong Railway Market (aka Risky Market) and Amphawa Floating Market. Experience a surge of excitement as a train rolls through the busy Maeklong Railway Market and watch how shopkeepers scatter to pull in the trays and tables of their wares out of the train’s way.
Submerge yourself in the strangely organized chaos of the floating market, and purchase your fruits and vegetables from one of the hundreds of paddle-boat vendors, floating on the Amphawa stream. End the day with a gentle cruise on the Amphawa river alongside the villagers' houses to get a peek into their daily lives.
When the day's fun is over, you'll be brought back to your accommodation in Bangkok City.
