- A visit of Thailand’s most unique railway market
- Travel by boat into a small coastal village that is specialized on coconut deserts
Unique Railway Market and Countryside Life
Just an hour drive south of Bangkok brings you into Samut Songkhram province that offers visitors a glimpse into the real Thai countryside life.
You will start the day with a stop at a local train station to experience a short regional train ride bounding for an amazing country market that has sprouted along the railway tracks.
Here, you will witness the dexterity and speed of the vendors as they quickly pack their stalls right before 10h20 when the train approaches; hence bringing shopping to a brief halt. It is a standard practice and stall holders have learnt the art of assembling and reassembling their wares at a moment’s notice!
Then take a boat ride on the canals out to a small coastal village, where you learn how traditional coconut desserts are made, join hands with the knowledgeable host in this homestay setting and try cooking your own dessert, making a perfect snack for the way back to Bangkok.
