Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.   It's huge, lively, full of boats selling food and fruits, and it's colorful - exactly how people imagine a floating market will look like - with the opportunity to capture the perfect photo to show off once back home. Here you can take an hour boat trip around the small rivers and the market.

Meklong Train Market

Meklong Railway Market is a local market in Samut Songkhram Province, commonly called Siang Tai (life-risking) Market. It is considered one of amazing-Thailand attractions in the province. Spreading over a 100-metre length, the market is located by the railway near MeKlong Railway Station, Mueng District, Samut Songkhram Province. It is a common fresh market selling seafood, vegetable, fruits, fresh and dried food, meats and other miscellaneous goods. MeKlong Railway Market is open from 6.00 a.m. -6.00 p.m. 

Wat Bang Kung Tree Temple

Wat Bang Kung is famous for the small chapel that is completely enclosed within the roots of a banyan tree called Bot Prok Po. It is almost like the tree itself is the pillars of the temple and that without the roots the chapel would fall down. You can also go inside to pay respect to the Buddha image. Also in the grounds of the temple are many statues of men in different fighting positions.The temple is free to visit, you can give a donation if you want.

Elephant Village

Elephant feeding or riding.  Only a short distance from the market area is a wonderful little elephant home. Elephants that used to work hard on the land are now looked after here. The money earned from them is used to feed and take care of them.

Here you can chose to buy some bananas and just feed them or you can ride them through the river for 30/60 mins.

Feeding the elephants costs about 100b and riding on one is about 600b per person for half an hour. If there is six or more people I can get you 100b per person discount.

    We will take a private van to this area. It is about 1.30 hours from Bangkok.  Help a small fishing community restore their livelihood. This former fishing village has been severely impacted by over-fishing and destruction of mangrove forests for shrimp farming. Over the years, this has meant the slow death of the community as fishing became impossible. As a result, they started a small Community Based Tourism (CBT) program, and this social business, allows the local people to restore their livelihood and community while also providing a fun and interesting experience for tourists. Our presence not only allows this way of life to continue, but by replanting mangrove trees where many important species grow before heading out to the open sea, we will be maintaining this for future generations 08.00 a.m. meet at your residence or hotel Travel to the village Learn about the issues and travel to see their way of life including aquaculture. Lunch will be in one of their houses in the middle of the sea. After lunch, head to the estuary to plant mangrove trees, expect to get dirty. Clean up and head out to the market. In the afternoon we will head to the Amphu Wa Floating Market. Probably the most picturesque and famous floating market among Thai people.
