What To Expect
Let's begin your trip by catching the Maeklong train as it passes through the Maeklong Railway market. Witness the scene unfold as the train approaches and the vendors start pulling back their stalls, canopies, and wares to make room for this train to squeeze through the narrow market. The Maeklong Railway open market sits right upon an active railway, which makes it distinct and attractive to curious visitors.
Then, we will drive to Amphawa floating market, where you will see hundreds of paddle boats selling Thai traditional food along the river. Grabbing a bite to eat is recommended and many of the waterborne boats will be preparing and selling a plethora of foods to feed the hungry market goers.
When the night falls, we'll board the motorboat to take a trip through the backwaters to Amphawa Floating Market. The motorboat route will take you along the rivers and waterways while observing traditional Thai ways of living.
If you are lucky enough, you will get to see hundreds of fireflies lighting up the night like twinkling stars!
