To the South of Bangkok in Ratchaburi province, it's an early morning start for a visit to the most authentic of the old Floating Markets at Damnoen Saduak. You can get some beautiful pictures from above the jostling boats filled with flowers, fruit, food and drink, plying their trade as they have done for centuries. It's also worth hiring a row boat around the market's -canals for a closer look.
We then go back towards Bangkok and stop at the Sampran Riverside Resort. Its former name was the Rose Garden, and it was one of Thailand's very first tourist attractions. It's a resort by the Ta Chine River that includes a riverside hotel, antique Thai houses around a lake, and an organic farm in extensive grounds and gardens, 4 restaurants, and its famous Thai Village Cultural Show. The show is a fast paced and interesting snapshot of everyday Thai life, important Thai ceremonies, Thai folk dancing and Thai martial art skills from all 4 corners of the Kingdom. Show time is at 14:45.
