This is an enchanting private tour, starting from your hotel in Bangkok, and go to explore the floating market of Amphawa, to experience a traditional market where business is conducted on the water.
Only available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays this floating market is occupied by vendors who pack their boats with food and drinks, such as fried sea mussel, noodles, coffee, sweets, etc. Visitors can enjoy a cozy atmosphere and local music broadcast over loud speakers throughout the market.
Amphawa Floating Market
Travel by private car from Bangkok with your English speaking local guide, and arrive in Amphawa, where you can walk along the canal and find most stalls selling their food, spices and clothes. There are some vendors on small wooden boats that cook and sell their food to visitors with a small wooden table in front of those boats. Take a coffee break, eat a snack and enjoy the charming local atmosphere. We go on our long tail boat to have a look on the market from the water, a great fun experience.
Meklong Railway Market & Tree Temple
Another great visit on this private tour is to a unique market that is held every day literally on the railway tracks, where vendors have to move quickly to get their goods off the way when the train comes. We continue to Wat Bang Kung, that is probably the most iconic in Amphawa district, with roots from banyan tree has swallowed and covered a whole entire temple and golden buddha!
Dinner & Firefly Boat Cruise
On the way back to Bangkok there is a Thai food dinner at local restaurant and an evening firefly boat tour on the Mekong River. The boat will cruise along Mae Klong River to see the fireflies swarming in the trees along the river bank. Be amazed with the sight as entire trees are flashing, yellow lights.
We return to your hotel in Bangkok in the early evening. This is a tour not to be missed, full of great experiences, privacy and comfort. We guarantee you will get the most out of this tour with our knowledgeable, informative and friendly English speaking local guide.
