Worth the time and money you spent. The little details which Klook prepared is amazing, and the tour guide is fantastic, she can speak dual-language (Mandarin & English). A must visit place in Bangkok Damnoen Saduak Floating Market & Maeklong Railway Market. At the floating market, must have the scrumptious coconut ice-cream and local food. As for buying the items, bargain more! While at the Maeklong Railway Market, it's a must visit place as hard to get such market where train will passby and all shops need to be moved away. A unique experience! Thank you Klook and would love to use more curated plans in the future!
Wonderful experience booking this tour. Klook provided a bus that made us so comfortable travelling approximately 2hours heading to Floating Market and Maeklong Railway Market. Our tour guide, Bon, was a nice man. He gave us details needed in our tour and he even gave us recommendations about what to do in Bangkok. Good job, Bon! Thanks, Klook for the experience!
Good value for money (a taxi from Bangkok to the market costs around 1000 bth), the departure time was respected. Our guide (Phaisan) was awesome. We took the excursion with our 18 month old boy and it was not a constraint for the excursion. It was great I highly recommend ????
Booked the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and Maeklong Railway Market. Meeting location was easy to locate. Jenny was our tour guide. On our way to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Jenny told us the basic history of Bangkok and taught us some basic Thai language.
At Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, we sat on a boat and travel around the floating market for about 40 mins. The foods price are fix but the souvenirs are allow to bargain. There's halal restaurant after the tour.
At Maeklong Railway Market, we are allowed to walk on our own for about 2 hours. The train can be seen twice at 11.10am and 11.30am. There is also a massage parlour which cost about 350 baht. We don't see any halal restaurant there.
On our way back we were allowed to choose to drop at IconSiam, Asiatique or Siam Paragon. Jenny bought us some fruits and she gave us drinking water during the tour.
An amazing tour! Highly recommend the early tour that starts at 7am. The traffic is not too bad at the time and you will get time to sleep on the bus. You also get back to Bangkok with a half day remaining! Our tour guide Wasim was amazing! He was so friendly and knowledgeable. He definitely made the tour more enjoyable. He taught us Thai phrases to use while bargaining. The tour gave us enough time to wander on our own and take in the scenery. Highly recommend this tour if you want to go to floating and railway market conveniently!

This tour package deserves to get 5 star rating. Everything just run smooth as expected, from check in before embarking to the bus, along the way and getting back to the assemble point. We got also some surprised services such as hop in a train ride and a visit to Wat Bang Kung – a unique temple hidden within the roots of a banyan tree.
There are also some more unique items you will see at Wat Bang Kung such as Statues of soldiers in 18th century dress, Statue of General Taksin (he would eventually become King Taksin) an A pier to enter the temple if arriving by boat from the MaeKhlong river.
Then cruising along MaeKhlong river is very enjoyable during evening to see fireflies on the riber bank. Not so many there but we saw some of them.
