Be Thai for a day and mingle with the locals

Crazy Markets tour

Get a glimpse into true Thai lifestyle by visiting two of the strangest markets you'll ever see.
Become Thai for the day as we use lots of local transport to experience part of the lifestyle not usually seen by foreigners. You'll see the jaw-dropping train market where the train passes inches from your face and leaves you asking why? why? why?
Another market we'll visit is one of Thailand's largest seafood
markets where it's not only seafood that you'll find, but also
a unique way of life, centred around centuries old customs and
traditions.
This is a non cycle tour but as always we take you behind the
scenes, by including some "local guides" to take you on a
"sam lor ride" along to the river for some amazing
experiences of hearing about their lifestyle, viewing
spectacular scenery and just having fun - all in a town where
the people are helpful and friendly and everyone and everything
is at peace with each other and themselves.

Itinerary

We meet at 7.30 at the Just Nok shop where we’ll go over the day's program, before taking our first local form of transport south-west out of Bangkok.
Out first port of call is the train market which the locals call the "Take your life in your hands" market. Be prepared for a sight that will rank amoungst the weirdest in your life.
After spending some quality time in this town, we'll take the train to Mahachai where we'll take a "sam lor" ride before having lunch at the port.
We'll spend some time walking around the market which sells mainly seafood with one or two things that you wouldn't think is edible.
Once we've had our fill of Mahachai, we'll head on back to Bankok by local mini-van, arriving about 3.30.
