  • Your guide and driver will collect you from your central Bangkok hotel, or from Saphon Taksin BTS, in your own air-conditioned, private vehicle
  • Your journey will take you through the Ratchaburi province and your guide will inform you about the Thai way of life in this ancient province which stretches from western Bangkok to Burma, as you drive past salt fields and rice paddies
  • Upon arrival at Damnoen Saduak you will be shown onto a longtail speedboat for an exhilarating ride through the countryside canals built by King Rama IV
  • Your longtail boat will eventually bring you into the heart of the Floating Market itself where you will see many vendors with their boats laden with goods
  • Your guide will treat you to a number of Delicious Delicacies as you make your way through the canals such as sweet sticky rice and mango, fragrant coconut ice cream, sizzling prawn balls, syrupy mini pancakes, homemade sweets or wonderful and exotic tropical fruits.
  • After your time on the canals, you are free to wander along the waterside market where you can continue to browse or shop. This is a photographer’s paradise!
