Samut Songkram Province, one of Thailand’s small provinces, but it offers a wealth of natural and cultural heritage. Within a compact area, you can experience ancestral arts, pilgrimage temples, place of royalty, floating markets, bountiful nature and communities that preserve their rural way of life. Many Thai Visitors come here just to eat the fresh shellfish, crabs, shrimp, squid and fish, especially its emblematic
(Pla Too) mackerel sold paired in bamboo baskets
There is a unique Maeklong Railway Market that is held every day literally on the rail tracks. Just before the train arrives in the town, the market stallholders have to pull back their awnings and remove their produce from the tracks. They then have to repeat all of this when the train returns. Fortunately it is not a busy track. The train leaves three times and it arrives three times
*It will take about an hour from Bangkok
*Opportunity to taste some local foods & fruits
*At Maeklong Market, we would like to show you the unique local fresh market and maybe you don’t see the train go through the market because the train schedule can be changed without notice
On the way, experience countryside and look for the windmills, this has long been a salt- producing area, and wind sails still revolve quietly above the flats. Traditionally, ocean water was drawn into the drying pans with wind power, using windmills made with bamboo frame and canvas vanes.
Amphawa Evening Floating Market, this one doesn’t start to get going until the late afternoon. Very good news for late risers and It is also more authentic as you won’t find the rows and rows of stalls selling the same tacky souvenirs. This is where the Thai tourists come to experience a floating market.

What Travelers Say
I am throughly stoked that I chose Thai Tour Guide to go with. My guide was Joy, and we visited the Grand Palace, several temples around the area, stopped by for some pork satay at a local market which we walked around in, and visited the flower market where I picked up flowers for cheap! Also went on a canal tour and fed catfish.
Our tour Guide Andy was excellent! He shared many insights into the Thai culture that made it very interesting. He was funny, informative and flexible. I would 100% recommend him. We have been on many tours over the years and this was the best. Our driver Happy was also very funny and had cold cloths and water for us after each stop. The food was amazing on our food tour and the sights on our regular tour were all amazing.
This was our first visit to Thailand and only having one day (we were on a cruise) wanted to experience Bangkok to its fullest.
The whole experience from the initial inquiry to the tour itself was fantastic. Mr Chob was so accommodating and tailored the tour to suit our time in Port.
As for the tour, simply amazing.
This was our fourth time using Mr. Chob's THAI PRIVATE TOUR GUIDE company and our second experience with Ms. Joy (Rapeepan Pongkasamepongon) and, as always, we were 200% satisfied! From our arrival at the airport to our last hugs goodbye, our three day's in Bangkok were thrilling.
We’ve got two different days tours with Mr. George.
One in Ayutthaya and the second one in Bangkok going to the Railway and the Floating Market!
Both were amazing, Thai Tour Guide was the cheapest of all the option that we ask for, and we don’t regret of our choice.
