Damnoen Saduak is the most popular floating market and located around 110 kilometers west of Bangkok. A trip to this Thai phenomenon is like traveling back to the ancient times of the Siam Kingdom, where colorfully clad merchants paddle along the narrow canals. The Floating Market is an ideal place for tourists to see the old style and traditional way of selling and buying fruits, vegetables and other from small boats. Tourists will also be able to see traditional Thai houses and the way locals use boats in their everyday lives. During your visit, there will be lots of activity and bargaining is part of the fun of the sale. The market’s popularity among visitors has grown over the years and outside the traditional means of selling and trading food and drinks, souvenir shops around the market are home to some of the best local handicraft one can buy. The tour includes a visit to the rural Maeklong Railway Market or Talad Rom Hoop (closing umbrella market).
Return to your hotel and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.

In the evening, you will head on a tour of Bangkok by Night Food Tour by Tuk Tuk. Go beyond tourist zones for the most enjoyable midnight eating adventure. After the moon comes up, cruise along Bangkok streets via this city’s iconic 3-wheel, Tuk Tuk, to visit Bangkokian’s favorite places to eat. Taste a variety of savory menus, including the local favorite Northeastern Thai Food (Esan Food), the town’s Best Pad Thai, and the popular home-style Thai snack. Between the bites, visit old-town landmarks and temples for a different perspective compared to the busy day time scene. Discover the side of Bangkok wholly unknown to visitors. We will finish the tour by Cinderella’s time.

Day 7: April 16, 2021 - Phuket

 Breakfast at the hotel. Today you will head on a half-day morning visit to Phuket Elephant Sanctuary with lunch included. A morning with the elephants is an eye-opening and inspiring experience. Following a scenic drive along a local village, you will arrive at Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, a picturesque jungle dotted with ponds, wide open fields and hillsides for the elephants to roam around. Your visit starts at our Tree Top Reception and Observation Platform, where we will watch an educational video to prepare you for your encounter with the elephants and to help you understand why they need to be protected. Next up, you will feed the elephants. While they enjoy their baskets of bananas, pineapples, and cucumbers, you have a chance to learn from our guides about the background of each elephant. Once the elephants are fed we walk with them down into the jungle. By keeping a safe distance and watching them from our Observation Salas, the elephants have the freedom to express their natural behavior, from bathing and playing in our pond to socializing with each other. The sanctuary does not offer rides, shows, bathing, trunk hugging, elephant kisses, sitting on or lying on the elephants, loud noisy groups, or people crowding around the elephants.
