Experience the world’s most unique shopping excursion—a trip to Damnoen Saduak floating market.|
From Bangkok, it’s a beautiful 109-km (68-mile) drive to Samut Songkram province for a glimpse at the timeless lifestyle of Thais who live along the canals at Damnoen Saduak. Even though they live on the water, they are farmers in a naturally fertile area, using the canal for water to irrigate and as transportation.
On the way, you will stop at Tao Tan for a fascinating and delectable look at how palm sugar is made from the coconut palm. Following your floating market shopping spree, you’ll visit a Royal Thai Handicraft Village.
After a delicious Thai lunch, the next stop is the Sampran Elephant Ground and Zoo, featuring a crocodile wrestling show that will take your breath away. You’ll be entertained by demonstrations of elephants at work and at play, even dancing and playing football. An exhibition of combat in ancient Siam shows how elephants were used dressed in full battle gear.
To put the finishing touch on a perfect day, your tour will stop at The Rose Garden, 75 exquisite acres of landscaped tropical gardens and lawns around a small jewel of a lake. The Thai Village Culture Show is offered every afternoon with a fascinating cross section of Thailand’s culture, heritage, and way of life, including dances, ceremonies, ritual, sports, and handicrafts.
