Let's start our day by visiting the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market! We'll start by walking around the market and enjoy the lively scenes along the canal. You'll also get to buy fresh fruits and delicious food from the boat vendors. I'll recommend you the best food and desserts to try, of course. Best of all, you'll get to tour the canal! How? By taking a long-tail boat ride, where you'll enjoy the local scenery along the way!
After checking out the local canal scenery, we'll leave for Maeklong Railway Market, or the "Umbrella Market". Here, the vendors sell their produce along the train tracks and actual trains run straight through the market many times every 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! Amazing, isn't it!
Look! The train is arriving! This is a good time for you to take lots of photos/videos to take home! Believe it or not, this unusual scene is completely normal for the locals. Just check out how casual each vendor pack away their goods and sell them again as if nothing happened!
Then let's enjoy our local lunch at the Railway Market. There are lots of shops here selling affordable Thai food where you can enjoy. After that, it's time to go back to Bangkok before the rush hour!
We should be in Bangkok by now, and this is when I'll drop you off right back at the meeting point. I hope you enjoyed this 2 in 1 market experience! Have a great day!
