Amazing! 4.3/5 AirAsiaGo Guest Rating

Spend a day discovering the stunning Thailand countryside by train. Pass colourful traditional houses made of wood, and visit several local marketplaces, some literally built around the train tracks. Sample delicious seafood and relax as you admire the expansive landscape.

Meet your guide and board the sky train for a quick ride to Wongwian Yai, where a brief walk gets you to the main train station. All on board as the train departs, passing amazingly close to local homes built alongside the tracks. Bangkok's skyline becomes smaller as you enter the countryside, where rice fields and houses built on stilts over water dot the landscape.

Make a stop at the Mahachai fresh market, and follow your guide through the narrow alleyways hiding some of the best seafood in Thailand. Eat at a famous local restaurant renowned for its quality. After lunch, ride a boat across a sea bank to board the train to Mae Klong market. Along the way, gawk at salt plans and rice fields stretching into the horizon.

Arrive in Mae Klong market, also known as the Umbrella Market. The train literally moves right through the market, as shop keepers move their stalls and umbrellas away from the tracks to allow passage. As soon as you're through, watch as they move back. Get off the train and walk around the market, perusing the wide variety of local goods. At the end of your visit, ride in a minivan and go by boat back to Bangkok.
