In the market for a cool cultural experience? This guided tour from Bangkok lets you be a part of Thailand's unique market culture. Start your day early at Maeklong Railway Market, and see why it's nicknamed Talat Rom Hup (umbrella pulldown market). Watch as vendors expertly lower their awnings as the train approaches and passes right over the fresh produce still laid out near the tracks.
From one unique Thai market to another, the journey continues to the meandering waterways that make up Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Ratchaburi. Your tour includes boat transportation to the market, but to float inside its premises, you can rent a long-tailed boat on-site and be steered through the market. Cruise right up to stalls to sample local produce and food for an unforgettable experience.
You may find the local supermarket to be bit boring after this!
