What to Expect

I will pick you up early in the morning, then the Floating Market is 110 kms south of Bangkok and the activities at the market usually die down by noon. So, with a distance, closing time and many things to see on the way we need to leave hotel early.

We will drive along the shore-line and pass by salt farms before we make our first stop at the local market in Samut Songkram. It is fun to stroll the market full of foods, fruits and view life style of people in this town. The highlight is to witness the dramatic scene as a morning train bully through a crowded market place. People back off from the track and fill over it again in just a few seconds after the train had left. This is truly a unforgettable moment.

We will ride a boat on the river pass fruits orchards, villages and embark at the heart of floating market. We will have a good view where boat vendors are congregated and barter their products.

At the Coconut plantation we will see the whole process of coconut sugar making and learn about how every coconut tree is being used in Thailand.

We will stop at a Wood Carving center to see number of Thai artisans at work and those beautiful finished wooden products mostly made by teak woods.

After a local lunch you will see and experience the real Thai rural life style.

The majority of the Thai population are farmers, this tour will give you a clear vision and understanding of Thai farmers way of life on what they do, how they earn their living in contrast to the life style of people in Bangkok.

The best way to explore this area is by boat, so we will go with a long tail boat on the canal and visit four different places. We will visit a Orchid farm and see how they produce the thai orchids. Next stop is at a fruit orchard where you are invited to taste various kinds of tropical fruits. We enjoy a fun cart ride through the orchard to see paddy fields and where the fruits are grown.

We will visit a Lotus farm to see how the farmer grow and earn their living on lotus flowers and learn why lotus is so important in Thailand. We will paddle a boat to pick lotus flower and learn to wrap the flower up.

The last stop is made at a Thai farmer’s house where a group of house’s wives are making various kinds of preserved fruits and rice cracker currently favorite by the princess including others such as dried fruits and iodine fostered salt eggs. Guest is invited to taste their products freshly cooked at the house.

Back to your hotel in Bangkok late afternoon.
