Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour starts when you meet your private guide at a location in Bangkok and take a taxi together to one of the city's original floating markets. 

When you arrive, you can walk around for a few minutes before hopping on a private boat for a ride on the canal around the market. You'll get a look at daily life along the water while listening to stories from your guide and admiring the water lilies. Then take in the bustling atmosphere of the market as your guide leads you around the produce, food, and crafts. Vendors might offer you tastings, and you'll have the chance to purchase souvenirs or gifts, if you wish. 

Perhaps buy some fresh fruit from a boat vendor on your way to your lunch spot, where you'll enjoy a meal featuring janglon (fish ball), grilled chicken, papaya salad, and coconut pudding. After lunch, check out the final parts of the market before returning to your starting point, where your tour ends. Feel free to ask your private guide for any recommendations for the rest of your time in Bangkok.

Ok to start off we had to meet our guide at the skytrain - we then got off at a station where she had a taxi organised to take us to the market. The entire market is a food market and you really get to experience the full Thai food experience here. But it's clear that there are some stalls that are favoured over others. We sampled quite a bit of tasters and bought a few items and then climbed on the boat and were taken around the canals. It wasn't too bad but to be honest, it was a bit long and we could have been done within an hour so felt a bit bored after a while. Our guide was very sweet though and loved showing off her culture.
