Description

Spend a day discovering some of the best markets and temples that Bangkok has to offer. Enjoy a combination of local culture, sightseeing, and food tastings. First, visit the Maeklong Railway Market. Called 'Talat Rom Hup' which roughly means 'umbrella pulldown market', watch the vendors scramble to pack up their stalls when a train goes by along the track that runs through the market. Explore and hopefully see the train pass before making way to the next stop, the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Discover one of the more famous floating markets in the city, which is made up of a network of narrow canals dotted with vendors paddling their boats filled with their wares. From local produce to souvenir items, take in the organized chaos on the river before stopping for lunch in a local restaurant, at your own expense. After indulging in a variety of tasty Thai foods, set off to visit Wat Phra Kaew, also known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, which is one of the country’s most sacred temples. Take in the tranquil and spiritual environment before making your way to the Grand Palace. Marvel at the exquisite architecture and numerous images here, once home to the Thai royal family up until the early 1900s.
