If you want to see not 1, but 2 iconic markets near Bangkok, then Samut Songkhram is the place to be! Come on our trip, and you'll get to visit Maeklong Railway Market where a train runs through the market. Also, you'll get to visit a local temple near Tha Kha Floating Market, where the ordination hall is covered within the Banyan and Bodhi trees.
Meet up at hotel lobby (in Bangkok area)
Let's start our day of exploring markets by visiting the Umbrella Market or Maeklong Railway Market. Here, the vendors sell their produce along the train tracks and actual trains run straight through the market many times a day. Here, you'll see how fast the vendors pull down their umbrellas and pack away their goods to make way for the arriving train! When the train arrives, this is the perfect photo/video opportunity for you to take home with. You wouldn't find something like this very often!
After checking out the railway market, Let's go visit Tha Kha Floating Market together! This floating market is one of the more local ones where you can mostly find locals with not many tourists. Here, we'll ride the boat along the canal together to see and absorb the local life. Best of all, we'll learn how to make coconut sugar the traditional way!
After that, we'll have lunch together at a local restaurant. If you don't know what to eat, ask me!
After having lunch, we'll visit Wat Bang Kung together to see the one-of-a-kind ordination hall. Believe it or not, the ordination hall is covered within the Banyan Tree and Bodhi Tree! This is unique even for the locals, so I think it's great to take pictures back home! After checking out the temple, we'll start heading back to Bangkok
We should be back in Bangkok by now! I'll drop you off back to your hotel safe and sound. I hope the trip was memorable for you to take back home, and I wish you safe travels!
