If you have only one day tour out of Bangkok and youre looking for an experience that shows you a typical way of life for many rural Thais AND wish to see a museum that can best be described as being very different! then this is the tour for you.
Enjoy a leisurely drive of less than 100kms from Bangkok to Rachaburi Province, home to the world famous Damnern Saduak floating market. But on the way there, stop by a coconut farm for a quick look at the process of making sugar from this useful native fruit. It is just a little further on where you will begin an exhilarating narrow long-tailed speedboat ride through the marshes and stilt houses to get you to this unique market. Thai style canoes laden with colourful fruits, vegetables, sweets and meats gently ply their way through the canal.
After this it is about a 90 minute drive to Woodland in Nakorn Pathom Province, where you will sit down to a delicious set lunch. Then be fascinated as you wander through Woodland. Woodland is a private, and very unique, wooden collection like you've never seen before! Just about everything here is wooden, not to mention wooden arts from Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar and Bali and have been inspired from Thai beliefs, Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity.
