Your Experience

The Unique “Umbrella Pull-Down” Market of Maeklong

Enjoy the perks of being in a small group and soak up the gorgeous view outside as it changes from metropolitan to countryside in a seamless transition.

After a 45-minute drive to the Ban Na Kwang train station, experience how the locals travel by taking a train to the Maeklong Market. The “Umbrella pulldown market” is a nickname given to Maeklong Market and is the largest fresh seafood market in Thailand. Even though it is located in the centre of the Maeklong Railway tracks, this doesn’t bother the local vendors.

At a certain time of the day, a train will barrel forward through this market, and vendors collectively move their goods away from the tracks. After the train has departed, they shift back their goods and resume their day-to-day activities normally. Interact with the locals and get a taste of their culture.

The Must-Visit Floating Market

After exploring the Maeklong Market, you will then make your way to the Damnoen Saduak floating market. If you’re wondering what a floating market is, it is exactly what it sounds like: a market afloat a maze of canals. Experiencing the floating market of Damnoen Saduak is a rare opportunity when in Thailand, a great way to engage with the locals and pick up on their culture and lifestyle.

You will take a long-tail boat and sail along the Damnoen Saduak canals. Notice the local houses lined along the canal and take a peek at their intriguing ways of living. When you arrive at the market, be mesmerized by the stunning array of merchants and local vendors selling their products on their boats.

Indulge in tasting the local food, such as Pad Thai, Mango Sticky Rice, Boat Noodles, and Coconut Ice Cream. Don’t forget to take back home a souvenir of this vivacious floating market.
