1. Longtail Boat Adventure to the Local Weekend Floating Market

Looking for an authentic Thai adventure? Join us as we visit the Weekend Floating Market in one of our authentic teak boats. Experience firsthand the traditional Thai way of life as the locals did 100 years ago when Bangkok was just a small town at the mouth of the Chao Phraya River. We provide you with a chance to see many local spots that most tourists never glimpse, no matter how often they visit the area. A fresh and different cultural experience, this is sure to be an unforgettable tour of Bangkok. You can see the Weekend Floating Market, the exotic Orchid Nursery, the Hidden Forest Temple, and many others. You might also witness local children enjoying the water, or the ice cream boat going by.

Local Weekend Markets: Khlong Lat Mayom & Chatuchak Tour

2. Local Weekend Markets: Khlong Lat Mayom & Chatuchak Tour

After pick-up from your hotel at 8:00 AM, you will be driven to Khlong Lat Mayom floating market. This small market is a great place to stroll around and sample delicious Thai street food dishes. Although not many vendors sell things from their boats, the fantastic market on land right next to the water makes up for it. This charming market will give you a taste of local life, as nearly no tourists come here. You will leave Khlong Lat Mayom at about 11.00 AM to visit Or Tor Kor market, known for its premium fresh fruit, vegetables and food. The Or Tor Kor market is packed with perfect produce, and is full of exotic fruits and vegetables that are unique to Thailand, as well as imported specialties from around Asia. Customers also shop here for seafood, sweets and cooked foods. The market offers a wide selection of prepared curry pastes and spices for you to take back home, and there is a food court filled with Thai specialties. The last stop will be at Chatuchak Weekend Market. With more than 15,000 retailers in 27 sections, this market is the largest weekend market in the world. Enjoy the fun of bargaining as you browse the incredible variety of merchandise on offer, from the latest fashion items and vintage decor, to Thai crafts and wooden tables. Although the market officially opens at 7:00 AM, shoppers usually go in the afternoon when the weather is cooler. After finishing your shopping, you will be driven back to your hotel at around 4:00 PM.

We had such an amazing time! Our tour guide was fantastic and was passionate about her job and teaching us about the local foods. Our driver was great as well and both were very professional and always on time. We enjoyed the boat and all our stops along the way including the orchid farm and walking around several markets. We would highly recommend this tour as it exceeded our expectations. We learned about different foods and were given suggestions on what to try, and also were able to learn more about Thai culture along the way. We had plenty of time to explore the markets and shop - we never felt rushed. Would highly recommend!

interesting tour,

A tour on which you get a lot of information and gain new impressions. We only booked this activity in the late afternoon of the lecture. The local organizer immediately contacted us by email to clarify the exact procedure. And everything went really well. Our guide Hai picked us up from the hotel. On the tour, he provided insights into Thai culture and everyday life. Driving along the Khlongs one found a lot of that again. We especially enjoyed shopping for our lunch at the market.

Great tour, well organized and wonderful guide.

We were met by Nui right on time at our meeting point. Nui is a great guide that shared practical information about the Thai culture. We really enjoyed visiting the temples, the market and artist village. It was really a backwaters adventure, off the beaten track. We got to mix with the locals and were even invited to eat with the family celebrating the passage of their son to become a monk. Very unique!

My guide “Lin” was excellent, her knowledge, and generosity highly appreciated. The lat mayom market was lovely and had kept the local feeling, as there was not many tourists around this early in the morning. Lin knows the Chatuchak market like her back pocket, and it was very helpful to have her help in navigating through all the alleys.

Great day out

Had a full and very interesting day with visits to two floating markets, the railway market (train runs through the middle), a temple, and enjoyed excellent food and shopping. Well worthwhile. Champ (the guide) was excellent
