We will meet you at your hotel at 7 am. The trip goes in the southern direction to Samut Songkram and further on to the floating market of Damnoern Saduak, the only floating market still active in Thailand. In a small boat you will be rowed through the market canals and the nearby khlongs for about one hour. Like a hundred years ago, people from the surrounding areas come here to sell and buy fruits and vegetables on their wooden row-boats.

From Damnoern Saduak it will take another 90 minutes by car to get to Kanchanaburi. You will make a train-ride along the famous “Death-Railway” and the last stop for today will be at the famous “Bridge over the Kwai River”.
