Bangkok Day Tours:
FD104 Full Day Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Mangroves & Oyster Farm Tour
Enjoy this full day water themed adventure that will take you outside Bangkok to visit the world famous floating market Damnoen Saduak as well as a water excursion through mangroves and to an oyster farm in the Bay of Thailand. Other interesting stops during this day will include The Mae Klong Train market and a home industry where you will enjoy delicious palm sugar.
After our team collects you from your hotel in Bangkok, you will begin the drive south towards the Mae Klong Train Market. At this unique market, you can witness the vendors set up their produce stalls directly over the train tracks of a railway line in full service! Simply wait and witness a surprising scene unfold as the train rides through this market and vendors hurry to pull away their stalls! After our Mae Klong Train Market visit, we will make a stop at a small palm sugar home industry; witness how they produce this fantastic sugar and have a taste. We’ll then resume the short drive to the boat pier located near Damnoen Saduak at which point you board a private motorboat which will bring you to the floating market via a series of narrow canals and backwaters; enjoy the spectacle of real canal life along the way. We will step off the boat once at the market and you will be free to venture through the market; you can walk up and down the various canals and flag down boats and merchants as you please. You will also have the option to board a paddleboat and really get close to the action in his colourful waterborne destination. After the morning’s visits at the train and floating market, we will begin driving to the river where you will board a boat that will take you to a small local fishing community in the estuary and will visit mangroves swaps. These mangroves are home to a group of macaque monkeys; some of them will even come swimming out to your boat hoping to be fed a few bananas! The boat ride will continue through the river estuary and further out into the sea where we will come across an oyster farm where you will be shown how local fishermen cultivate them. The day will finish when we escort you back to your hotel in Bangkok.
