Bangkok: Damnoen Saduak Market and Maeklong Railway Market

1. Bangkok: Damnoen Saduak Market and Maeklong Railway Market

Choose from either a shared group or private guided experience to see 2 iconic markets on a day trip from Bangkok. See a market located on the railway tracks, the Maeklong Railway Market, and a market that floats on the canals at the Damnoen Saduak Market. After pickup, arrive at the Maeklong Railway Market, also known as Talad Rom Hup (“Umbrella Pulldown Market”). Maeklong is one of the largest fresh seafood markets in Thailand and hugs the track of the Maeklong Railway. Gain fascinating insights into how the market is run and what products are sold here from your local guide. Marvel at how market stalls and awnings are pulled back from the tracks every time a train approaches to let the train pass through. Next, head to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, one of the most famous floating markets in Thailand. To reach the market, take a short ride in a paddleboat. Enjoy plenty of time to meander around the colorful market, where friendly vendors sell directly from their boats. Take in the sights and sounds, and try local specialties like mango sticky rice. Your guide will give you advice on what not to miss. Return to Bangkok in time for the early afternoon.

2. From Bangkok: Damnoen Saduak & Train Market Tour in Spanish

Start the tour by meeting your small group at one of the two meeting points, or get picked up at your hotel if you upgrade to the private tour option. Leave Bangkok around 7 AM by air-conditioned van, and get to know your Spanish-speaking guide and learn some insights about Thailand on the 1.5-hour ride to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Upon arrival in Ratchaburi province, board a longtail boat and enjoy the ride to the floating market. Don't forget to take a photo or video of this unique experience. Once there, immerse yourself in the floating market for 1 hour. See locals selling their food from paddle boats, and shop for food, snacks, or souvenirs right from the boat. Spend your leisure time walking around the market with no rush and try authentic Thai food, if you like. After exploring the market, get back on the van and drive to the famous Maeklong Railway Market centered on the railway. Wander around with your guide waiting for the iconic moment when the local train comes at 11:10 AM. As the train approaches, watch the awnings and shop fronts get moved back from the rails, and then replaced once the train has passed. Make sure to have your camera ready as the train will not wait for you. Then, gather with your group and board the train to be ready to leave Mae Klong station at 11:30 AM. Take in the views of the rice fields and local way of life on the railway side. Arrive at Ban Na Kwang Railway Station at 11:57 AM and hop on the air-conditioned van for the return trip to Bangkok. Call it a day and get dropped off around 1:30 PM.

The tour was beautiful. The first stop was the train market. A totally crazy place and experience. Second stop was the floating market. The boat ride was included and lasted around 30 minutes. Unfortunately, one of our passengers felt sick and had to go to the toilet after a short time. However, our great guide managed to arrange a special trip for both of us, so that we could do another round even more through Chinatown than through the market district. We saw five varans. The return trip took 1.5 hours. Everything well organized! Thank you very much!

Very well organized and glad that the guide Jenny didnt just stick with the trip only but gave mini tips and small stories about all sorts about Thailand. It's a very pleasant trip with comfy minivan and good guidance about what to do and expect. The railway market and floating market itself is just alright as a tourist destination in itself.

Highly recommend this trip just outside Bangkok. We visited in May 2022, some of the stalls at the floating markets were still closed due to covid but it was still an amazing experience.

Audi is a great guide, the tour was amazing, it exceeded my expectations, totally recommended
