Private Tour: Floating Markets and Sampran Riverside Day Trip from Bangkok (9 Hours)



Private Tour: Floating Markets and Sampran Riverside Day Trip from Bangkok (9 Hours)

         Your day trip from Bangkok starts with pickup at your hotel by private vehicle for the drive to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, 68 miles (110 km) west of Bangkok. During the drive, admire views of salt fields and rice paddies, and get an introduction to the market from your private guide.

          When you arrive, board a long-tail boat with your guide to explore the busy, colorful market where vendors sell fruits, vegetables, flowers and sweets right from their canoes. This is one of the most famous floating markets in Thailand, and it can be crowded, but if you wish to get off the beaten waterways, you can rent another boat to take you through the smaller, often more peaceful canals (time permitting; own expense).

          Once you’re back on dry land, you’ll be driven to the Sampran Riverside Thai Village, a resort-style attraction 20 miles (32 km) west of Bangkok.

          Enjoy lunch at the garden’s restaurant, and then spend the rest of your tour immersed in Thai culture.

          At the traditional village within the resort, see Thai villagers make handicrafts and demonstrate other skills such as weaving silk, making pottery, painting umbrellas, weaving mats, carving fruit, pounding rice, making masks and dolls, and crafting silver and lacquerware. See authentic Thai period costumes, different styles of native architecture and antiques from around the country.

           You can also watch displays of cultural activities like Muay Thai boxing, sword fighting, dancing, a wedding ceremony and an elephant show.

          When your time at the Rose Garden is up, you’ll be returned to your hotel in Bangkok, where your tour ends.
