Why Markets & Farms of the Tha-Jeen - Experience the river’s bounty is special ?
The Markets & Farms of the Tha-Jeen tour takes you to the heart of rural Thai life. It’s an especially great choice for flower enthusiasts, couples and families.
What to explore at Markets & Farms of the Tha-Jeen - Experience the river’s bounty?
9:00: Meet at Wutthakat BTS Station, Exit 2, and drive for around 45 minutes to a century-old market along the Tha-Jeen.
9:45 – 11:45: Explore the market and sample a range of local specialties, then drive to Jesada Car Museum.
12:00 – 12:30: Check out Thailand’s largest vintage car museum, located in an unlikely spot surrounded by farms. Along with dozens of decades-old roadsters and a Delorean, the collection includes countless examples of tiny Asian-inspired vehicles that look more like overgrown insects.
12:45 – 14:00: Enjoy lunch at one of our all-time favorite restaurants: a no-frills countryside eatery serving exceptional Central Thai fare that relies heavily on locally caught fish and is made from scratch by the resident family.
14:15 – 15:00: Paddle a boat through a large lotus pond.
15:15 – 16:15: Visit an elderly farming couple and take a spin through their fruit orchards on the back of a Thai-style tractor. Here you’ll also sample fresh and dried fruit that’s produced on site.
