Vendors sell everything from fresh fruits and vegetables, dried shrimp, fresh fish, fresh meats and offer many prepared foods to buy. The fresh market is located along the tracks of a functioning commuter train. It’s truly amazing to watch as the public transportation train comes through the market and the vendors will pull aside their tents, umbrellas, stalls and fresh foods to allow for room for the train to pass in between their stalls and the tracks. The Railway Market makes some great photos & videos to bring home and leaves you with a memory of a lifetime.

Using a private van with air-conditioning on tour:     

bangkoktourguide-privatevan.jpg

The private commuter van is highly recommended for an easy and relaxing way to travel around Bangkok. It’s very comfortable with air-conditioning to keep you cool in Bangkok’s high temperatures and high humidity. Average temps in Bangkok 29-38C/85-100F with high humidity 70-90%. We will provide all refreshments such as cold waters, cold towels, and umbrellas on all trips.

    On tour, the approximate walking distance to anticipate is 6 – 8 kilometers / 4 – 5 miles on tour. The boat riding takes approximately time 1 – 1.30 hours. The approximate driving distance from Bangkok to the Train Market and Floating Market are 1.30 – 2 hours in each way.

     The tour uses an Air-Conditioned Minivan for easy transportation. This is suitable for large groups, friends, families with young children who may not be used to the high temperatures and high humidity in Bangkok. Anyone who is unable to walk long distances on tour and also for those who might be tired from jetlag or long flights the day before your tour begins.


THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE WITH THE BEST TOUR GUIDE

Our family consists of my husband, me and our three children (8, 6, and 5). We booked a tour with Mandy after reading all of the fantastic reviews we had read, and we were certainly not disappointed. Booking the tour was very straightforward with constant communication from Mandy. She was able to advise on the type of tour that would work best with our children in the short time that we had. Our children fell in love with her and were holding Mandy’s hand as first choice!
