DAY 3 Bangkok – Floating Market
Breakfast at the hotel. You will be picked up by the driver and the guide to go by road to the town of Mae Klong where we can see a curious market installed on the same train tracks. If time and luck allow it, we can see how the train crosses the market and, in record time, merchants collect all the products they have on the train tracks (it is not guaranteed that the train passes during the visit to the market because this has very irregular schedules).
From there we will go to the floating market of Klong Damnersaduak, in the province of Ratchaburi, considered the most important in the country. We will arrive at a jetty in the vicinity of the floating market in Damnersaduak and from there we will take a motor boat ride through the canals until we reach the market where we will disembark and have free time to walk, explore their products and enjoy the lively atmosphere. After completing the visit to the market, return to Bangkok and transfer to the hotel.
