Our 1 day Floating Market program you will introduce you to the floating market in central Thailand. You will visit the more popular Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in the morning and visit the less known Amphawa Market in evening. Both of them have got their unique charisma.
You will also visit one of the most unbelievable markets in Thailand - the Rom-Hoop Railway Market. The unusual thing is that a train runs through this market and where market stalls are set up on the rails. The siren signal for arrival of the train and the vendors have to move their goods to clear a passage way for the train. You will notice that most of the market vendors had some kind wheels installed on their stalls so that they can slide out of the way and pull down their awnings while others have to physically lift their goods from the rails where the train is due to arrive. The train moves slowly and passed over the left over items. Once the train is gone, the vendors push back the stalls and awnings into position and resume its business again as if nothing has happened.
Also a visit to Ban Kateng Chao Lay is part of this program, which is a bamboo village on the river. There you can see swimming monkeys. They will swim to your boat and look for fruits. You can feed them some fruits.
