Train and floating market

Me and my husband loved the train and the market and it was nice to be able to have the ride on the long tailed boat to the floating market. It was quiet when we went. Our guide was brilliant very informative. I do feel that this is worth a visit

Amazing Market experience
Lindsey_W
, Mar 2020
It was an early pre-breakfast start, we were collected from our hotel at 6am, but necessary as its quite a long journey. We enjoyed visiting the railway market very much, a buzzing and colourful market and an amazing experience to see the market traders move everything away from the track so the train can pass through, seconds afterwards everything is returned so easily. We were offered to travel on the train for an extra 100 bart, but pleased we resisted the pressure to do that as it really wasn't necessary. The floating market was a bit disappointing in comparison, it was very quiet on the day we visited. Not sure if it was because it was a Monday or because of the corona virus or a movie that was being filmed there. Also we think it would have been better for the paddle boat to be included in the tour price instead of asking for extra money once you get there. Overall though, I would recommend this tour.

Awesome Fun Tour

This tour was amazing. It is easily one of my top favorite tour here in BKK. We were on a Private tour, picked up on our hotel and brought to this railway market with vendors moving their goods and umbrellas aways from track as train approaches, it was a fun sight and experience from inside and outside the train when it was all happening. You can do shopping in the market as well with cheap and local prices. The second part was this coconut farm which is the least fun stop of the tour, nothing much to say as this is like a tour filler IMO. And lastly, you will be taken to this Damnoen floating market with boat ride while checking the vendors.. tip: DON’T buy souvenirs there, too overpriced. Haggling are expected though. And lastly, our tour guide Ms. Jim aka as our photographer and Ms. Bee, the most energetic and fun driver ever are both awesome and the reason why this trip was super fun. Overall, it’s so worth it for the experience. Highly recommended.

Thank for recommending our Guide Jim to worldwide travelers. Warm regards to you, Mr. Joseph.

Excellent tour with an excellent guide

We enjoyed our tour with Mod. She was very knowledgeable and we learned so much about the places we visited and about Thailand in general. The Railway Market is amazing and it is very nice to see the action form both inside the train and from the market. The market is very authentic and Mod showed us many produce we didn't know about. The floating market is more touristic, but a must see. It's amazing to see the floating market tradition still alive. As part of the tour, you get to see a salt farm and a coconut farm, both very interesting. I highly recommend this tour!

Dear Ms. Liliana. We are so glad to hear that you enjoy your day with our Guide Mod. Sure, she is very knowledgeable and tell you many interesting stories. Yes, all private guests will have the "double tour", inside and on the rail tour. The market is very authentic since Thai people do their shopping here. Floating markets are alive and full of Thai culture. Absolutely, the salt farm and coconut farm are interesting. Pls let us service you again, Ms. Liliana.

There were 8 in our party, including 4 teens, on a short stopover. Everyone agreed that it was an excellent tour. Great way to see Bangkok area highlights during a brief stay and get out of the busy city. Vicky is an excellent tour guide and was able to answer all of our questions and provide a lot of detail about the Thai culture. She is friendly professional. Thank you! Van was on time to pick us up at our hotel and driver was courteous.

Dear Ms. Praxxxx [BR-756070144]. You don't specify your hotel when you make your join tour booking. We can show TripAdvisor system screenshot that "My hotel is not yet booked". You tell us later that your hotel is Sukhumvit 101 IT Apartment, which is 14 kilometers away from Bangkok downtown. We could not pick you up since you purchase our join tour. You agreed to meet us at BTS Siam 6.30am: our guide called you but you were still in your bed. We have your WhatsApp screenshot that you agreed to come to our pickup point at 6.30am. After failing to show up at the agreed meeting point, you insult our reservation staff with many inappropriate words but we didn't fire you back. We have WhatsApp screenshot of your insults. We issued you a partial refund but you are still not satisfied. With our professional manner, we didn't show your full name to worldwide travelers. Pls ask yourself, your moral, and your conscious, Ms. Praxxxx [BR-756070144].

This was an excellent tour. Our guide Jasemine was very thorough And very friendly throughout. Would thoroughly recommend this trip especially as you get to ride the train through the market and then after see the train pullout yourselves. It’s incredible to see the speed in which the the stalls are cleared from the tracks and then retuned as if nothing had happened. Only in Thailand.

Dear Ms. Cosmopolitan279888. Our Guide Jasmine is very happy to service you. Thank for your recommendation to worldwide travelers about the railway market tour. It is one of the Unseen Thailand attraction where you can see the train running into the stalls. After the stalls are clear from train, the sellers resume selling as if nothing happened! Thank for enjoying your great experience with us in Thailand, Ms. Cosmopolitan279888.
