Get Planning! →

A fantastic tour for travelers who wish to explore the famous floating & railway markets and learn about local communities in great depth in the same day. In the floating market, you will ride the boat to traverse through the Damnoen Saduak floating market which many travelers dream of. After that, you will go to the railway market, where you will watch “Unseen-Thailand” chaotic moments. You will see many sellers detract their umbrella to let the train passes by their stalls. In next few minutes, our guide will lead you to a coconut farm, which you will learn how to boil coconut sugar and make sugar loaf. As a bonus to your tour, our guide will lead you to visit the salt farm and tell you about the salt making process in great details.


This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Damnoun Saduak, Ratchaiburi, Damnoen Saduak 70130 Thailand

Roundtrip Transportation from Hotel to Market is total of 3 hours and 30 minutes. 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 icecream, and Thai-style boat noodle.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hub), Si Champa Alley, Mae Klong 75000 Thailand

The Railway Market is humorously called as the “life-risking” market! You will have fun riding a local train toward the Mae Klong station. While on this train, you will see the “Unseen-Thailand” experience. When the train signal rings up, the chaos will happen! Vendors will rush to detract their stall and clear away all goods that obstructs the running train at a great speed. Once the train passes, all shop owners will resume their stalls again.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Samut Sakhon, Samut Sakhon, Samut Sakhon Province

The whitish salt field, not a rice field, of course. A special bonus tour for our guests who join our floating and railway market tour in 2020. This sea salt is produced by Thai local wisdom. The salt farmer will rotate the sea water in different levels matching the strength of wind and sunlight. The rotation will continue until the salt becomes a “salt mountain” which are ready for cooking, skincare, and agriculture. On the Highway 35 in Samut Sakhorn province, our guide will lead you to rub the salt to your hand and take amazing photos!

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Coconut Sugar Farm, 296 Dumnoen Saduak Tambon Damnoen Saduak, Damnoen Saduak Thailand

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 coconut shell using a traditional Thai “rabbit-teeth” wooden machine.
