During this full-day tour, which includes a delicious restaurant lunch, you’ll visit Damnoen Saduak, Thailand’s best-known floating market followed by a visit to the famously beautiful Rose Garden for an excellent cultural show and demonstrations of elephants at work.
Bustling, colourful floating markets are one of the first things you think of when you picture Thailand, and the most famous of these is the Damnoen Saduak market.
Enjoy a leisurely drive passing rice paddies and salt fields en route to the market which lies around 100km from the centre of Bangkok.
Board a long-tail boat for a journey along the canal to the market, where you’ll see the colourfully-clad merchants as they paddle along the congested waterways in their sturdy canoes laden with fresh fruit and vegetables.
Lots of chatter, activity and bargaining is common and all part of the fun, although you may not haggle down more than a few baht.
Next, you’ll visit the nearby Rose Garden for a delightful restaurant lunch (included) overlooking the river.
After lunch, explore the beautiful gardens before enjoying the excellent show at the Thai Village.
Sit back, relax and enjoy representations of all aspects of Thai life which may include Thai dancing, a wedding ceremony, monk ordination ceremony, sword and long-pole fighting, kick-boxing and fingernail dancing.
Before returning to Bangkok, enjoy the last spectacle of the day with a demonstration of elephants at work.
