What To Expect

Your trip to Thailand will be incomplete without visiting floating markets – a traditional beauty of Asian culture. There are countless floating markets throughout the country, many within a couple of hours of Bangkok. The colorfully clad merchants at these lively markets paddle along congested canals in sturdy canoes laden with fresh fruit and vegetables to sell to shoppers on the banks. We will take you to explore three most famous floating markets in Bangkok. In addition, we also visit some temples on the way. It would be an unforgettable experience of your Bangkok trip!

Description

From 6:45 to 7:30am, we pick you up at your hotel in Bangkok and drive south to start our bicycle exploration of the Mae Klong Delta area at Klong Lad Pli Floating Market. Walking through Klong Lad Pli gives us a chance to see wooden houses perched on the edge of the canal including one that once was an opium den. We arrive at Damneon Saduak floating market – the biggest and most colorful in Thailand and a must for any visitor. Here you can purchase just about anything from the vast array of “shops” on the river.

After discovering the sights and sounds of the floating market, we embark on a long tail boat and cruise through a maze of canals cutting through local villages and various plantations. This eye-opening boat ride offers a glimpse of Thailand of old where local people are going about their daily life with the canal as the focal point. Hop off a long tail boat and get on our saddles, we start a short ride to Wat Bang Kae Noi, which is famous for its teakwood carving. The magnificent teakwood interior of the Unosot is delicately carved to portray the story of Lord Buddha. Our ride then takes us further into coconut plantations and fruit orchards along quiet back roads. We will stop to visit an Unseen Thailand at Wat Bang Kung – a quirky temple held up by a huge banyan tree. After lunch at a riverside restaurant, we continue cycling on picturesque trails towards Amphawa floating market. After some refreshments, we explore a temple complex and a local market and finally ride back to Bangkok. End trip at your hotel around 5:00pm.
