Weekend Amphawa Floating Market & Train Market Private Tour
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 6.5 hours
After pickup, the first stop is the Bridge On The River Kwai, part of the Siam-Burma Railway built by WWII prisoners of war. Walk along the “Death Railway” bridge of Hollywood fame, learning about its historical and cultural significance. Next, head to Wat Tham Seua, a Buddhist temple perched atop a mountain. Known as the Tiger Cave Temple, it was named after the tiger paw prints found on the cave walls. Climb to the top and take in the gorgeous scenery, marvel at the large gleaming statue of Buddha, and explore the main temple area. The next stop is Wat Bang Kung. Built during the Ayutthaya period, this Buddhist temple is covered in the roots and branches of nearby Banyan trees, making it seem like a hidden ruin in the forest. Take a peek at the golden Buddha statue inside and snap photos of the iconic entrance. Finally, make your way to the Amphawa Floating Market. Board a boat and ...
Depart Bangkok at 1 PM and travel by air-conditioned vehicle to a unique market held on the tracks of a working railway line. Marvel as the local traders make way for the trains as they pass slowly through the village. Then, continue to Amphawa Floating Market to join the locals as they buy and sell from boats on the canals of the Mea Klong River. Stroll along the boardwalk to watch the scenes unfold as farmers and fishermen sell snacks such as fried sea mussels and papaya salad from their boats. Admire the surrounding area on a boat trip with the locals to see around the area. Return to Bangkok city center for drop off at around 9 PM.

Everything went as planned, no delays, impeccable organization. A very big thank you to our guide who was able to make us discover with passion these fantastic places, advised us well for purchases, photos, behaviors to observe. She also introduced us to local culinary specialties and prepared everything for us. A delight ! These two places are of course to visit, no regrets! Obviously, the guide makes the difference, and if you want everything to go smoothly, opt for a private tour. To recommend without hesitation.
The chance to meet in VIP because alone with the super-friendly guide and the driver in a mini-bus for the 2 of us only! The places are extraordinary! The top, the "long-tailed cruise" at dusk (only the two of us) ... even if the fireflies were shy! Let's travel quite a bit, but this is the first time we've used GetYourGuide = it's a good solution.
Very easy trip from our hotel to railway markets and floating markets and back. Excellent guide, driver, and car. Maybe they should fix the rear seatbelts though
