- Admission fees are included
- Transportation fees are included
- A lovely local guide to show you around, every step of the way!
Floating markets are a big part of the Thai culture, and now you have the opportunity to explore the Khlong Lat Mayom market with a seasoned English-speaking local. You will trek around Bangkok adventurously and memorably by local means of public transportation. Although Bangkok city keeps growing and expanding so fast, the outer part of the city still has some villages that keep a more traditional way of living. You will reach one of the best floating markets in Thailand on this tour and most visitors of the market are Thai.
Canals in Bangkok are still used as transportation in areas in and around Bangkok; many of the canals have been filled in to make way for roads, and boats and have turned into cars. The actual “floating” part of this market is very quiet (while the non-floating part is massive), and there are just a few vendors who sell things like potted plants, flowers and fresh fruits and vegetables from their boats, with just a few restaurant boats too. You’ll be able to walk around and visit any vendor that gets your attention - but you’ll have the added bonus of having a local by your side!
Tasting the local food and dessert is an absolute must in Thailand and you will have the opportunity to do plenty of that here! It is better that you will have a guide, Fon, as a Bangkoker to help you recommend and explain all the local stuffs that you may otherwise be too intimidated by to try. Fon is from Bangkok, Thailand and she loves to travel around the world. She also loves to show everyone her world too and is an excellent tour guide.
