An off-the-beaten-path tour for travelers who wish to enjoy a unique experience from other travelers. While this tour introduces you through the popular destinations such as the floating markets and the railway markets, our guide will also show you the local Chinese shrine in the railway markets. This Chinese shrine has a 100+ years relationship with the locals with Chinese lineage who live nearby the railway markets. Our guide will tell you an intriguing history of this Chinese Shrine and may introduce you to the sacred methods to worship the Chinese Gods if you like (voluntary participation). As a bonus to your tour, our guide will lead you to a coconut farm, where you will learn how to boil coconut sugar and make sugar loaf, before bringing you back to your comfy hotels.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Bangkok

Pickup from hotel and travel to Maeklong market.

Stop At: Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hub)

The Railway Market is humorously called the “life-risking” market! You will have fun riding a local train toward the MaeKlong station. While on this train, you will see the “Unseen-Thailand'' experience. When the train signal rings, chaos will happen! Vendors will rush to detract their stall and clear away all goods that obstruct the running train at a great speed. Once the train passes, all shop owners will resume their stalls again. Note: travel from your hotel to the Maeklong Market takes about 1 hours 45 minutes.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Coconut Sugar Farm

You will observe how Thai farmers produce coconut nectar and palm sugar loaf. You will see a demonstration of coconut flower cutting, pouring the nectar into a bamboo container, putting preservation woods in the container, boiling up and pasteurizing the coconut nectar into the drinkable one. You will try squeezing coconut milk from a coconut shell using a traditional Thai “rabbit-teeth” wooden machine. Note: travel from the coconut farm to your hotel takes about 1 hours 45 minutes.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

The floating market of Damnoen Saduak is among one of the most attractive floating markets in Thailand. Motor boat rides are already included in your tour! Many Thai and foreign tourists come here to absorb the atmosphere of Thailand water markets that have been like this for over a 100 years. At this floating market, you can try a number of delicious Thai fruits and foods such as sweet mango on sticky rice, freshly-made coconut ice cream, and Thai-style boat noodles.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
