A fantastic tour for travelers who wish to explore the famous floating & railway markets and learn about local communities in great depth in the same day. In the floating market, you will ride the boat to traverse through the Damnoen Saduak floating market which many travelers dream of. After that, you will go to the railway market, where you will watch “Unseen-Thailand” chaotic moments. You will see many sellers detract their umbrella to let the train passes by their stalls. In next few minutes, our guide will lead you to a coconut farm, which you will learn how to boil coconut sugar and make sugar loaf. As a bonus to your tour, our guide will lead you to visit the salt farm and tell you about the salt making process in great details.

What To Expect

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
Roundtrip Transportation from Hotel to Market is total of 3 hours and 30 minutes. The Floating Market of Damnoen Saduak is among one of the most attractive floating markets in Thailand. Motor boat rides are already included in your tour! Many Thai and foreign tourists come here to absorb the atmosphere of Thailand water markets that have been like this for over a 100 years. At this floating market, you can try a number of delicious Thai fruits and foods such as sweet mango on sticky rice, freshly-made coconut icecream, and Thai-style boat noodle.

1 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hub)
The Railway Market is humorously called as the “life-risking” market! You will have fun riding a local train toward the Mae Klong station. While on this train, you will see the “Unseen-Thailand” experience. When the train signal rings up, the chaos will happen! Vendors will rush to detract their stall and clear away all goods that obstructs the running train at a great speed. Once the train passes, all shop owners will resume their stalls again.

1 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Samut Sakhon
The whitish salt field, not a rice field, of course. A special bonus tour for our guests who join our floating and railway market tour in 2020. This sea salt is produced by Thai local wisdom. The salt farmer will rotate the sea water in different levels matching the strength of wind and sunlight. The rotation will continue until the salt becomes a “salt mountain” which are ready for cooking, skincare, and agriculture. On the Highway 35 in Samut Sakhorn province, our guide will lead you to rub the salt to your hand and take amazing photos!

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Coconut Sugar Farm
You will observe how Thai farmers produce coconut nectar and palm sugar loaf. You will see a demonstration of coconut flower cutting, pouring the nectar into a bamboo container, putting preservation woods in the container, boiling up and pasteurizing the coconut nectar into the drinkable one. You will try squeezing coconut milk from coconut shell using a traditional Thai “rabbit-teeth” wooden machine.

Lin was really knowledgeable and informative. We love the experience of taking the train to the railway market and also off the train at the market. The coconut farm was really nice with plenty of things to see. We ended up at the floating market for some delicious food!
An easy way to travel around Bangkok

As a “lazy” traveller who has done zero preparation, I think it was great to hire a private tour. Everything was made simple. Our guide Chaiya knows all the great spots for taking photos :)
Book book book don’t think twice

What an amazing day it was with Nok Jason & Big Boy. We knew this was a long day excursion and we worried but to be honest it was the best idea and excursion ever!!!!

During our drives Nok will teach us the history of the beautiful city, culture and temples. As well as spoke to us about the history of Thailand. We got super super lucky for having Nok because he was Able to answer many questions we felt we didn’t know who to ask.

I can’t pinch and point at one thing was my favorite because it’s in all bundle of experience. They made sure our time was right for each stop.

If you ask my husband and I if we would do it again in a heart beat.

Thank you Nok for your kindness and love for this beautiful country. You only made us fall more in love with Thailand.
First time in Thailand- toured with Nok Jason! He’s amazing!!

It’s our first time in Thailand and we kicked off our first tour day with tour guide Nok Jason (man). Jason was amazing!! He was in communication with us the day before thru WhatsApp and the morning of. He’s very friendly, humorous, and accommodating to our needs- there we’re 6 of us. Jason was knowledgeable about the Thai culture. The tour itself felt like we were being guided by a friend, not a “tour guide”. He also took lots of IG worthy pictures of us! We’d recommend this tour to anyone with Nok Jason who’s visiting Thailand. Lastly, our driver was great and a safe driver in the busy traffic.

Good even though we did not like much the floating market. It would be better to spend more time to railway market
