Around 08:00 you will leave from Bangkok to Damnoen Saduak floating market, in a fully equipped air-conditioned car/minivan. At Damnoen Saduak, start with a long-tail boat ride through a maze of canals cutting through local villages and plantations and see how the locals live here.

Ride along quiet country back roads, plantation trails and unpaved flat roads. Depending on the season, you will see grapes, lychee, pomelo and coconuts growing in trees and plants, ready to be harvested. Besides the overwhelming nature along the Mae Klong River delta there are a few beautiful temples our guide would like to show you and tell you more about. “Wat Bang Kung” dates out of the Ayutthaya period, is more than 500 years old, and is famous for the small chapel that is completely enclosed within the roots of a banyan tree, called Bot Prok Po. It’s like the tree itself is the pillar of the temple and without it will fall. “Wat Bang Kae Noi”, built in 1868, inside is covered with wood carving depicting the life of Buddha. Three life sized wax statues of famous Thai monks complete this remarkable temple. The ride continues over small wooden bridges hanging over canals along the Mae Klong River until reaching the ferry to cross us to the Amphawa market.
