Full description

Depart from Bangkok in the morning and head to Ratchaburi Province, home of the famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.

Along the way, make a quick stop to visit a traditional Thai house, where you can see locals making brown coconut sugar. Explore the house and its surrounding area, which is home to many different animals living on the coconut plantation.

Continue your trip by boarding a paddle boat for a ride along narrow canals to the floating market. See the local houses lining the canals and take a quick glance at their way of living, while you pass by. 

Once you arrive at the market, see the amazing array of vendors in their boats selling fresh products, from fruits and vegetables to prepared dishes.

Explore the floating market at your leisure for about an hour and take time to try some authentic Thai foods, such as Pad Thai, Mango Sticky Rice, Boat Noodles or Coconut Ice Cream sold along the canal. 

Meet up with your guide to head back to the meeting point in Bangkok, where you will arrive between 1:30 PM and 2:00 PM.

They picked us up at the meeting point super punctual. We went to a coconut farm, where we could try and see how they make the different products (from coconut sugar, coconut chips…), we also took advantage and tried one (coconut price is 20THB). Finally we went to the floating market and got on a boat to browse some of the market stalls. Pen was our guide throughout the journey, very friendly and talkative, she made us videos uploaded to the boat that she later sent us via WhatsApp. Without a doubt, a highly recommended experience.

Tour well organised, we went to coconut farm first and then the floating market. Both are really interesting and the guide was super helpful, she showed us typical Thai house and customs, helping taking pictures. Tip: don't buy souvenirs in the coconut farms as you will find them cheaper anywhere else.

the tour was well organised. we shared the van with other tourists so there were 9 of us in all. our tour guide, Suzie with driver, Turk was very good in explaining Bangkok customs and traditions and was very patient in answering our questions. we also learned a lot from our coconut sugar plantation tour and got to try some sugar samples. the floating market was also a fun experience seeing all the colourful and curious items for sale in others’ boats. it was a half day well spent and would highly recommend it.
