TOUR OVERVIEW

Get ready for an early start as this day will combine all the sights,sounds and colours of the early morning floating market at Damnoen Saduak as well as taking you to the beautiful province of Kanchanaburi where we will tour the cities highlights and take an option to get up close with real live full grown Tigers!           

 

TOUR DESCRIPTION

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. We will proceed to Kanchanaburi where you visit the allied prisoners or war cemetery and the famous Bridge Over The River Kwai, we will also visit the Thailand Burma Railway Center which houses an excellent museum for those who are interested in the history of the railway and its construction. After this we will have the option to take a boat to get a closer view of the river before proceeding with the trip back to Bangkok or you can take the option to try some elephant riding. This is a great day to get out of the city and sample the history and beautiful nature that Kanchanaburi province has to offer as well as all the colours, sites and smells of the vibrant floating market at Damnoen Saduak.

Important Update - Sept 2013: Due to a train timetable change it is unlikely that you will get to see the train passing through The Mae Klong Train Market on this tour. The train has been put back to a later time and now clashes with a visit to the floating market (For now we are leaving a visit to the market in the itinerary as the market itself is still of interest) Sorry for any disappointment.
