About
Maeklong Market is a unique, 'must-see attraction' that should be on every visitor's itinerary. It is called 'Risky Market' because there is a train track that runs directly through the middle of the market. Literally within seconds of the train passing through the market vendors have to pull their goods, and themselves, out of the way. The precision timings and movements of everyone involved are fascinating to witness. Amphawa Weekend Evening Floating Markets is equally unique and special and well worth a visit!

The overall tour was nice and interesting. We were able to buy plenty of things in the Maeklong Train Market and eat lots of seafood in the Amphwa Floating Market, but sadly we were not able to see much of the fireflies because it was not in season when we visited (October is the season for fireflies, we went during February)

If you need just transportation to the markets; this is it! And that is exactly what you'll get.

Our "tour guide" was Elf. I have no idea when the markets started, why or any other details. The almost two hour ride there and back was spent in near silence. No explanation of what we were seeing such as the salt fields or life in general. Nothing about the markets. Elf spent his time on two cell phones; one for watching YouTube and the other for playing games. And that's the best part of the trip.

The ride was in the most uncomfortable van ever; without shocks. Airline economy seats are better! We were the last to get picked up, so naturally we got the back seat. First, the windows in the van are low and tiny. Good luck seeing anything out of them and impossible in the back seat. And then the shocks, or lack thereof. Every bump in the road made your head hit the ceiling. And oh, no leg room. NONE. And it was hot. I was going to get car sick; so I squeezed on the top of everyone to get to the front and squatted where there wasn't a seat. We asked Elf to ask everyone if we could rotate seats. He said he would try which meant, heck NO!

At the two stops, we told us where and when our meeting point was and left. When he did speak, he spoke softly and was hard to hear.

The markets in itself was fun. I am pleased we went.

However, that van ride as the ride from hell.

Dear SirannaA, I will certainly check into the claims made about guide Elf, however, investigating your description of Elf's performance has been made more difficult due to your description of the vehicle. This is a vehicle which is used on a daily basis and it seems you are the only passenger not satisfied with it. I do regret that you find the windows in this Toyota van to be unsatisfactory, but this Toyota van has the same windows in the back as every other Toyota van of same/similar model wherever in the world. Kind regards, Christopher Manager Tours & Activities Online Department I Asia Thailand
