Amphawa Floating Market & Maeklong Railway Train Market Tour (Join-in)

Experience the energy of the vendors by the Maeklong railway, taste the fresh flavours of the Amphawa Floating Market and end your day with a magical firefly boat tour

Bustling Bangkok is a must for any Thailand trip, but so is getting out! If the metropolis is too much, let us take you on a memorable adventure to our favourite cultural spots outside the capital. Get ready for ancient temples and colourful local life as we journey to:

Maeklong Train Market: Firmly off the tourist train, this vibrant local market dates back over 100 years. While the fresh local produce, trinkets and souvenirs are worth browsing, the real attraction is the steam train that thunders through several times a day, sending market vendors scattering.

Wat Bang Kung: Hidden inside the roots of an ancient Banyan tree, this charming temple has Angkor Wat vibes for sure. Once you make your way through the knotted roots to the shrine enclosed inside, you’ll find statues dedicated to the long-gone soldiers and generals who protected Thailand from the Burmese in the 1800s. 

Amphawa Floating Market: Measuring more than 50 kilometres in length, Amphawa is one of the largest markets of its kind in Thailand. Locals sell fresh produce and edible delicacies from rowing boats as they circle the market looking for business. Soak up the colourful, chaotic atmosphere and sample fresh local food hot off the boats!

Firefly boat tour: We’ll finish the day on a real high as we board a riverboat for an early evening adventure. As the sun sets, you’ll start to spot shimmering fireflies hovering above the water. A truly magical way to spend a day!
