Price From : 1,600 - 6,450 Baht
If you are short on time then this is a great day to see some of Bangkok's highlights and the famous floating market at Damnoen Saduak. Mae Klong Train market, Palm sugar home industry, and Wat Arun as well as the Grand Palace Complex all feature on this full-day Bangkok tour.
This tour will begin when we collect you from your Bangkok hotel for your early start to this colourful market. An early start is essential as the drive to Damnoen Saduak is a little over one hour and we do not want to miss the colourful boats of this morning market. On the route to Damnoen Saduak, we will stop by at Mae Klong Train Market where you witness the market vendors goods set up across the tracks of a working railway line. Just wait and see the amazing scene unfold when the scheduled train passes through this market! Before Damnoen Saduak we will make a short stop at a wonderful little Home industry producing palm sugar. You can see the sugar being made as well as try some of the sweet candy produced from the palm sugar. At Damnoen Saduak you well board a privately chartered motorboat where we will travel some of the canals on the way to the market and you can get a glimpse of real canal-side life. we will disembark the boat at the market and you will then be free to explore the market, you can wander up and down the canals flagging down boats and vendors as you please or take the paddle boat option where you can really get amongst the action on the canals. Following the market, we will make our way back to Bangkok. On arriving in Bangkok will have lunch before you can choose to visit Wat Po OR visit Bangkok's most important Palace and temple complex. If you visit Wat Po you will get to see a plethora of Buddha statues, temple buildings and Wat Po's highlight which is the giant reclining Buddha. For those who visit The Grand Palace (extra charge applies), the Grand Palace was built as a Royal residence and over the years many additions have been made including the stunning Wat Prah Kaew which houses the Emerald Buddha carved out of a single piece of Jade! The last stop of the day will be Wat Arun one of Bangkok's most iconic temples. You will be able to get close up and climb partway up the Pagoda to get a panoramic view over the Chao Phraya. At the end of the day, we will transfer you back to your Bangkok hotel.

The entrance fee to Wat Po is included in the tour price below.
