    Some of the best things to do in Bangkok happen outside the city centre where you can interact with locals and see life away from the bright lights. This Damnoen Saduak Floating Market tour first takes you from Bangkok to Ratchaburi, one of Bangkok’s neighbouring provinces, to explore what many visitors describe as, ‘the best floating market in Bangkok’. After a scenic drive you’ll arrive at a pier and where a longtail boat which will bring you to the market’s main canal where the real fun begins.You will be greeted immediately by the boisterous calls of food and souvenir vendors peddling their beautiful handicrafts and wares. Small sampans fill the canal below as merchants and hawkers alike show off their freshly picked produce and beckon you to try their grilled seafood. Challenge yourself to try something you’ve never eaten before, practice your bartering skills with the lively merchants, or glide through the network of canals aboard a traditional boat. It’s not often you can tell your friends and family that you spent the morning exploring Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.Sample even more exciting Thai flavours at lunch before spending the afternoon discovering Kanchanaburi attractions, like the famed River Kwai Bridge and the humbling JEATH War Museum. While there are many things to do in Kanchanaburi, these two landmarks represent a very chilling period of history during the construction of the Death Railway during World War II and provide visitors with an in depth look at what went on during that time. The River Kwai Bridge is the same bridge made famous by the Hollywood film, The Bridge Over the River Kwai. Stand on the still-active train tracks and take beautiful photos as you walk across the mellow river below. At the JEATH War Museum, you will gain more understanding of what prisoners of war (POWs) from Japan, England, America, Australia, Thailand, and Holland experienced under the harsh construction conditions of the Death Railway. It’s a touching way to pay honour to those who fell during a difficult time in modern history.Prepare to check off a few items from your travel bucket list after this Damnoen Saduak Floating Market Tour and visit to Kanchanaburi attractions. You will visit the best floating market in Bangkok, taste incredible Thai foods, walk across the River Kwai Bridge, and learn about WWII conditions at the JEATH War Museum. What an unforgettable day!
