Destination: Bangkok, Thailand
Duration: Full Day
Meal: Thai Lunch
Pick up at the lobby of your hotel at an appointed time and transfer to a meeting point in Bangkok where we leaves at 08:00 a.m. to Damnoen Saduak floating market, in a fully equipped air-conditioned car/minivan, will take about 1-1.5 hours.
At Damnoen Saduak we start with a long-tail boat ride through a maze of canals cutting through local villages and plantations and you will be able to see how the locals live here. Furthermore, we visit a coconut plantation where they make palm & coconut sugar in a traditional Thai way.
After we have visited Damnoen Saduak floating market, our bicycles are waiting for us to continue this adventure.
We ride along quiet country back roads, plantation trails and unpaved flat roads. Depending on the season, we’ll see grapes, lychee, pomelo and coconuts growing in trees and plants, ready to be harvested. Besides the overwhelming nature along the Mae Klong River delta there are a few beautiful temples we would like to show you and tell you more about. Wat Bang Kung dates out of the Ayutthaya period, is more than 500 years old, and is famous for the small chapel that is completely enclosed within the roots of a banyan tree, called Bot Prok Po. It’s like the tree itself is the pillar of the temple and without it will fall.
Wat Bang Kae Noi, built in 1868, inside is covered with wood carving depicting the life of Buddha. Three life sized wax statues of famous Thai monks complete this remarkable temple.
The ride continues over small wooden bridges hanging over canals along the Mae Klong River until reaching the ferry to cross us to the Amphawa market. Here you will have a chance to stroll the local market and/or visit King Rama II park before heading back to Bangkok by car/minivan.
Arrive in Bangkok and transfer you back to the hotel.
