AFB15-Damnernsaduak Floating Market and Risky Market article

Half day - Every Morning from 07.30-13.00 hrs.

The tour leaves Bangkok early to arrive at Mae Klong market in Samut Songkram Province. This is no ‘ordinary’ market, but one that justifies the epithet of “Amazing Thailand” – in fact, few believed the first traveller’s reports that - several times a day - a scheduled passenger train cuts right through the crowded stalls. It is indeed true, and the sight is quite extraordinary – as the approaching train driver sounds the horn, overhead canopies lift, tables move, vendors retreat and the line clears seconds before the thundering locomotive arrives. The rail passage is so tight that ground level vegetable displays disappear from view as the carriages pass directly over them. Moments later, the sequence happens in reverse – and the market returns to normal as if nothing has happened. From here, visit a local house to observe how coconut sugar and other coconut products are made, then enjoy a longtail boat ride past fruit orchards and stilt houses to arrive at Thailand’s most famous floating market of Damnoen Saduak. Enjoy the unique spectacle of all kinds of different products sold from open boats, a colourful image you may have often seen portrayed on tourism posters and a delightful treat to observe in real life.
