Maeklong Railway Market

What You'll Do

Visit the Maeklong Railway market, lunch at a local restaurant and then spend the afternoon in Baan Bang Phlap Village in a homestay with surrounding orchards.

Get an early 8am start and head to Mahachai city where you’ll catch the local train to Maeklong Railway Market. This market is located right on the tracks of an active railway line.  When the trains come, the vendors quickly fold away their umbrellas, tables and goods, then set up again once the train passes.

After lunch in a local restaurant, you’ll head to Baan Bang Pllap village.  Enjoy this authentic Thai experience in a peaceful, comfortable homestay surrounded by orchards.  You’ll meet local producers who specialise in dried fruits, as well as learn how they can be made into charcoal.

The last house in the village is where kite makers have worked for more than 50 years, and you’ll  get a chance to enjoy a kite making workshop – the perfect souvenir to remember your day. Here they guarantee that all kites fly!

The day will finish around 5pm, when you’re transferred back to the city.
