Description
Damnoen Saduak Floating Maket: Located in Ratchaburi Province about 55 km southwest of Bangkok, this unique traditional old Thai style floating market is the kind that any tourists would love to experience.  A true floating market of Thailand, you will get to see authentic Thai villagers selling their items and products in an old Thai style long tail boat. Hundreds of boats float along the canal selling a variety of authentic Thais hand crafted goods and foods such as exotic fruits, vegetables, and handmade trinkets and gifts.  It will truly make you feel what it was like for Thais to live and appreciate their cultural heritage. 

Maeklong Railway Market: Located in Samut Songkhram Province about 70 km southwest from the outskirts of Bangkok close to the Maeklong Railway Station, this market has everything that we’ve come to know and love about Thai markets. With its vast stalls full of different variety of exotic fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, as well as sweet desserts, clothing, and beautiful flowers. Maeklong Railway Market is the old style market that is truly unique because the market is located right on top of the train tracks. When the train is running through the market, all vendors will quickly pack their goods and prepare to close their awning and move from the train track as the train passes by. Once the train is gone, the market stalls are re-erected in less than a minute back on the tracks again and its business as usual. They get a charming little bell alarm to warn them of the coming train with a few minutes for the vendors to move their carts or stalls. To the locals this market is called “Talat Rom Hoop” which translates to “Market Umbrella Close”. The train runs through the market 3 times a day, every day. You must see this remarkable market for yourself. ​

Wat Bang Kung is a temple erected during the Ayutthaya-era that sits along the Mae Khlong River just north of Amphawa. It is famous for being the temple that is completely encased by the roots and branches of Banyan trees. The temple’s thick stone-walled ordination hall is quite small, but it appears larger than it actually is thanks to the banyans that have risen up around it. The thick roots and branches of the three different kinds of Banyan have snaked through the windows, making it difficult to recognize any structure at all. Also called “Bot Prok Po” this Temple was also used as a naval fort for King Taksin, the site of a fierce 18th century battle between Siam and invaders from Burma.  This site was then abandoned for almost 200 years. It was later redeveloped by the Ministry of Education. Inside the heart of the compound there is an ordination hall made of bricks and mortar while the entire outside is completely covered by Banyan tree and roots. Since the temple is related to the war during the 

Ayutthaya period, the temple has exhibits of Muay Thai Statues and puts on the "Gra-bee-Gra-bong" show which means “the Old Thai style sword fighting”. Today Wat Bang Kung still serves as a Buddhist temple for locals to worship in as well as a memorial to honor past warriors for their heroism.

三个人才划算

因为这个行程是2人成行独立成团才定的,我们是三个人,算下来每个人250块的样子,两个人的话每个人就是300块。。汗。。携程上面也查了那种拼团的168块,我们最后还是不想拼团,没有导游,司机能说点简单的英文,勉强也能沟通,还好提前做了攻略不需要太多讲解,中间路边我们看到卖水果的,他还停车给我们买,就是比较自由,总之还不错吧。
