Your Day Tour
There are countless floating markets throughout Thailand but the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is the most famous. Situated 110 km from Bangkok in Ratchaburi province, this market is like a trip back in time to the Siam of old. Watch merchants paddle along the busy canals with fresh fruit, vegetables and other items to sell to shoppers on the canal banks.
The tour also visits the Phra Pathom Chedi in Nakorn Pathom, reportedly the largest pagoda in South East Asia. The golden-tiled dome of the Chedi towers stands almost 116-metres into the air. Enjoy a buffet lunch at Sampran Riverside and stroll around the luscious gardens or on the weekend visit the canal side market and Sookjai Weekend Farmers’ Market. The trip is also includes a workshop at “Patom Organic Village” where you can learn more about sustainable and responsible Thai products/craft.
