Colors of Damnoen Saduak
Colors of Damnoen Saduak is a relaxed bicycle tour from Damnoen Saduak floating market into the green Amphawa district.
The tour starts with a pickup from your Bangkok-hotel by air conditioned minivan to bring you to Ratchaburi province. Markets of Thailand are some of the country’s most quintessential experience. They give a lively peek inside the more traditional culture of a country that often lives by water. That’s why our first stop will be at the famous Maeklong railroad market in Samut Songkhram. The market stalls are set up directly on the train tracks, and vendors sell a variety of fresh produce, seafood, meats, clothing, and other goods. When a train approaches, the vendors quickly retract their awnings and move their merchandise to make way for the passing train. Once the train has passed, they promptly resume their positions, and the market returns to its bustling state.
At Damnoen Saduak we start with a long-tail boat ride through a maze of canals cutting through local villages and plantations; Visit a coconut plantation where they make palm & coconut sugar in a traditional Thai way.
After we’ve visited Damnoen Saduak floating Market, our bicycles are waiting for us to continue this adventure. We ride along quiet country back roads, plantation trails and unpaved flat roads.
On the way we will enjoy a delicious Thai lunch at a Maeklong riverside restaurant.
Depending on the season, we’ll see grapes, lychee, pomelo, and coconuts growing in trees and plants, ready to be harvested.
Besides the overwhelming nature along the Mae Klong River delta there are a few beautiful temples we would like to show you and tell you more about. “Wat Bang Kung”
dates out of the Ayutthaya period, is more than 500 years old, and is famous for the small chapel that is completely enclosed within the roots of a banyan tree, called Bot Prok Po. it’s like the tree itself is the pillar of the temple and without it will fall.
“Wat Bang Kae Noi”, built in 1868, inside is covered with wood carving depicting the life of Buddha. 3 life sized wax statues of famous Thai monks completes this remarkable temple.
This will be the last stop before heading back to Bangkok by minivan.
