Unreal!!! What an amazing day. I would highly recommend getting a private tour guide for this special experience. We visited the salt flats, took the train into the heart of the 1st market, and saw the intimate details of how the stall owners have to work around life on the train tracks. For the 2nd market, we had a private long tail boat take us to the heart of the market where we had the option to buy food, beer, souvenirs - all from our boat. This is a must do if you’re visiting Bangkok. Special shout out to our amazing guide, Siri.

If you are thinking of booking this trip just book it! brilliant way to see so much in one day outside of the business of the city! special mention to our tour guide Theravadh(Wat) and his driver, both were excellent at their jobs and Wat is such a friendly, and funny man who made the experience so much more enjoyable! the whole tour is amazing, beautiful spots to visit and is a must on a Bangkok trip if you want to see something different! would definitely recommend.

Katy was our guide and she was SO CUTE. She was so knowledgable and chirpy the whole entire trip. This was one of the key highlights in Bangkok - what a unique experience! Totally recommend

Simply put: excellent! You see and experience a lot, in just one day! Many memories to share also with family and friends.

The day trip to the rail market and then to the loating market was a real travel experience
