Full description
Meet your private guide at the pre-arranged meeting point and take a taxi to the most authentic floating market in Bangkok. Upon arrival, stroll around the market for a few minutes before hopping aboard a private boat to navigate the canals and get a glimpse of the real Thai lifestyle. Listen to your host’s stories as you pass water lilies and their beautiful flowers. Discover the local food produce and crafts on sale as you soak up the atmosphere and taste bites the vendors will offer you. Purchase gifts for your friends back home, or simply indulge in all the food along the way. Sample fresh fruits en route to a lunch spot, where you will be served a 3-course menu, including the traditional street food of jang-lon (grilled, minced fish with curry paste), grilled chicken, papaya salad and an authentic coconut pudding.

    We had a great Tour in Bangkok with our guide Tuangtip. She is a very good guide and showed us a different side of Bangkok. It was a great experience to taste all these traditional thai food at the floating market and get to know the local life. Also the boat trip was very relaxed and fascinating. Also our two little Kids had a lot of fun and Tuangtip always took care of them. I can really recommend this tour, uncomplicated handling and you can get to know the real local life, away from the tourist attractions. Thank you!

    Great trip

    Great, nice guide and everything well organized, from dr pick up at the BTS, taxi ride and the way back. The time in the market was great. You could try everywhere and enjoy the boat trip through the small canals. Trip can be recommended and the destination is certainly better than the "main floating market".

    A great experience to get to know the country and its people, we were driven through the canals with a gondolier that was pure nature. Then our guide Samy just great an authentic guide with whom we had a lot of fun and have learned a lot about the farmers from the area who offered their goods. Our full recommendation who would like to visit a floating market.
