    Make today your "market- day!"

    You will be picked up in the morning from your hotel in Bangkok and transferred to Mahachai market. Take a stroll across the market and get a glimpse of the daily Thai- life, before heading for Samut Songkhram.

    Finally you reach the "Umbrella Market"- the market is located directly on the left and right side of the railway- track. When a train signals its approach by whisteling, the vendors fold away the roofs (hence the "umbrella"- reference) and wait patiently for the train to pass. When the train is through, roofs will be unfolded again and life continues.

    From a good viewpoint by the tracks, you can see the train leave the station and watch the strange ballet of train and vendors. On the way back to Bangkok, pay a visit to the temple Wat Bang Kung, which appears almost like an jungle temple with it`s roots embracing the building.


    Duration: 5-6 hrs depending on the hotel location and traffic situation.
