  2. Tour Itinerary

    Day 1 : Maeklong Train Market, Ratchaburi,

    12.00 am Pick up from Hotel

    13.30 pm reach the Maeklong Railway Market who has been around since 1905. It is found in the province of Samut Songkhram, located on the Gulf of Thailand. Fishing was (and still is) one of the main livelihoods of the people who lived here, and the market was another way in which to sell their goods. Officials decided to build a railway to better deliver these goods to provinces around Thailand, including the capital. The market remained, however, despite the new tracks that cut through it. 

    You will hear the train long before you see it. Vendors and merchants collectively begin to coolly move their belongings and umbrellas away from the tracks as the train barrels forward, laying on its horn every now and then to warn people of its inevitable passing. Baskets of goods are dragged away from the tracks, the overhead tents are drawn back, and the tracks are cleared, making way for the train. 


    Amphawa Floating Market

    15.00 pm Amphawa is frequented primarily by Bangkok weekenders. While visually, its historical accuracy may not be as comparable, this evolution of a centuries-old trading style into modern day is unique in and of itself. Along the 50-kilometre stretch of the Amphawa Canal, Buddhist monks still paddle in the morning to accept alms from villagers, residents patronize the floating markets for their produce and other groceries, and those settled along the waterfront continue to rely on its resources within routines of their daily lives like cleaning and bathing.
