Stop At: Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Damnoun Saduak, Ratchaiburi, Damnoen Saduak 70130 Thailand

Embark aboard your long-tail speed-boat on your journey to the Damnern Saduak floating markets. The floating markets are a fascinating experience, a complete contrast to how we shop for food in the west and are made up of Thai style canoes laden with colorful and succulent fruits, vegetables, sweets, and meats - gently plying their way through the canal, selling as they go. It is one of the most popular Thai sightseeing experiences and not to be missed. If you want to take a closer look your local Thai guide will help you organize a local boat ride through the markets (optional extra).

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

You will then board your coach for the journey west to Kanchanaburi, home to the River Kwai and it's infamous bridge

Stop At: Bridge Over the River Kwai, Tha Makham, Kanchanaburi 71000 Thailand

The building of the bridge in 1943 was part of a wartime project to link existing Thai and Burmese railway lines to create a direct route from Bangkok, Thailand to Rangoon, Burma (now Myanmar) in an effort to support the Japanese occupation of Burma. Over 100,000 conscripted laborers and 12,000 prisoners of war died during the whole project.

If you are looking for a way to see the floating markets and the river Kwai as an independent traveler who is looking for a way to get there then this is the tour for you. Our tour guide did not spend a lot of time on giving us any information on the market or on anything else. I would say this was one of the more disappointing tours that I have been on. This turned out to be a four bus transfer from Bangkok to the floating market to Kwai and back again. This tour, in my opinion, is nothing but a transportation service thinking it is otherwise will leave you very disappointed.

Very knowledgeible guide but difficult to understand. Interesting trip and we enjoyed it. No water or cold cloth provided which makes a huge difference when you are wilting. Lunch was very poor,meat was tough and tofu shrivelled.Floating market- paddle boat good fun, sadly motorised boats ruining atmosphere and bad fumes for genders.Long trip but good experience.

This was a good overview of he floating markets and bridge. Could have been a little more history and point out things along the long journey to get there.

As described the tour visited the 2 places we wanted to see and each was as expected if not a little fake. On the way we visited a very distasteful theme park with elephants and women with rings around their necks. In this day and age we felt paying for a picture of a baby elephant in a small ringed area was unreasonable. While the women were traditional and very keen to discuss this the group found this very awkward exhibiting them in their surroundings. Driver and guide managed the 'long' day well.
