1. Bangkok: Chatuchak Weekend Market & Floating Market Tour
Whether you’re an avid shopper or simply want to experience Bangkok’s unique market culture, this shopping tour is for you. Begin with a long-tail boat ride through Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market, then take a trip to Chatuchak Weekend Market, popular with both locals and visitors. After hotel pickup, begin at Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market, one of the closest floating markets to the city. Stay in Bangkok to save on travel time and see boats filled with fresh produce and other goods as you sail down the canal on a long-tail boat. See the local communities living along the canals, and look for Bangkok's famous water dragons lazing on the edges or swimming in the water. Chat with the locals and try some local produce along the way. After cruising down the canal, head to JJ Market, more commonly known as the Chatuchak Weekend Market. This market is one of the largest markets in Thailand, with over 15,000 stalls and 11,000 vendors. The market is so large it has its own map. Stroll along the aisles and taste some local street food from one of the many kiosks. Go souvenir hunting for items and clothes to take back home. Your guide is on-hand to help you navigate your way around and find the best bargains. At the end of your Bangkok shopping tour, return to your hotel or you may like to stay at Chatuchak to continue exploring at your own pace.
