    • Morning
      • floating market

      • There are countless floating markets throughout the country, many within a couple of hours of the capital. The colorfully clad merchants at these lively markets paddle along congested canals in sturdy canoes laden with fresh fruit and vegetables to sell to shoppers on the banks. There is lots of chatter and activity – bargaining is common – that’s all part of the fun -- but don’t expect to get the price down more than a few baht.

        The most famous of the floating markets is Damnoen Saduak, about 100 kilometers southwest of Bangkok. This buzzing market is at its best in the early morning before the crowds arrive and the heat of the day builds up.
    • Afternoon
      • Secret Garden (ซีเคร็ท การ์เด้น)

      • Every girl would love this place because besides delicious cakes the shop has cute and warm interior designs with sweet floral prints that would be great for an afternoon tea or a romantic date at night.

        Must try: The Crepe Cake is one of the Secret Garden's must try.

        For chocolate lovers: Try the Choc Chip Crepe.

        For a locally inspired cake (only in Thailand): Try the Thai Tea Cake, a soft and fluffy cake texture dressed and topped up with light aromatic scent of Thai tea cream with just the right amount of sweetness.
      • Chatuchak Market Section 2

      • Chatuchak Weekend Market has reached a landmark status as a must-visit place for tourists. These alleyways are grouped into sections, with 27 sections in all. The market has more than 15,000 booths selling goods from every part of Thailand (plants, clothing, silk, hill-tribe outfits and even fluffy pets!).

        Must see: Check out the Teh Tarik ( literally "pulled tea") pouring stunts by the man selling it. It is wonderful feat to watch & delicious to drink. Teh tarik is a hot Indian milk tea beverage.

        Must eat: Coconut ice cream served in a coconut husk , complete with slices of coconut flesh, two toppings and complimentary cup of pure coconut water.
    • Evening
      • บ้านน้ำเคียงดิน (Ban Nam Kieng Din)

      • Baan Nam Kieng Din is a beautiful scenery restaurant on the most beautiful road in Thailand, which is Udhayan Road which is between Nakorn Chaisi and Phuttamonton. The name of Baan Nam Kieng Din in Thai language means "The house next to river". Once you arrive at a restaurant will amuse you with the green garden, it’s lively with the bunny rabbits and half a dozen pink flamingoes are walking and running around, while the a pair of black swans and the teals are swimming in the river. Look over the garden you will see the romantic 2 homes which is the European country style combine with the waiters and waitresses dressed in German traditional costumes that make you
        wonder if you are in Europe.
