DescriptionStart your trip from your accommodation in Bangkok and depart to Samut Songkhram on a day trip. Thaka Floating Market will give you a truly authentic experience! Here, the locals' way of life is still very much preserved. Glide through the water on a wooden rowboat while seeing vendors' paddle boats piled with fragrant lotus blossoms, coconuts and handicrafts, selling their wares in a palm-lined canal. Absorb the local scene and learn about the tradition of water commuting. Afterwards, visit an authentic Thai house and see how the locals make brown coconut sugar. Then, take a visit to Wat Bang Kung, once a navy campsite during the reign of King Taksin the Great. Following the second defeat of the Ayutthaya kingdom in 1767, the king relocated his navy to this campsite. The temple is honored as one of the unseen temples of Thailand. After an enjoyable day, transfer back to your hotel in Bangkok.
