Private Tour: Weekend Floating Market with a Local from Bangkok
From $27.67
Overview
Take a private tour in Bangkok to visit the floating market. This 4-hour experience provides the opportunity to walk past lots of food stalls, enjoy a lunch of local dishes, and take a boat ride along the off-the-beaten-path canal. You'll gain insight into a piece of local life in Bangkok.
What to Expect
Your tour starts when you meet your private guide at a location in Bangkok and take a taxi together to one of the city's original floating markets. 
When you arrive, you can walk around for a few minutes before hopping on a private boat for a ride on the canal around the market. You'll get a look at daily life along the water while listening to stories from your guide and admiring the water lilies. Then take in the bustling atmosphere of the market as your guide leads you around the produce, food, and crafts. Vendors might offer you tastings, and you'll have the chance to purchase souvenirs or gifts, if you wish. 
Perhaps buy some fresh fruit from a boat vendor on your way to your lunch spot, where you'll enjoy a meal featuring janglon (fish ball), grilled chicken, papaya salad, and coconut pudding. After lunch, check out the final parts of the market before returning to your starting point, where your tour ends. Feel free to ask your private guide for any recommendations for the rest of your time in Bangkok.
