What to do in Bangkok? Travel Bangkok to Amphawa Market, shop for Thai souvenirs, try delicious grilled seafood & much more

While the drive from Bangkok to Amphawa is not too far, a visit to Maeklong Railway Market and Amphawa Floating Market will have you feeling like you’ve been transported back in time. The Maeklong Train Market, as it’s also known, is a traditional fresh market located in an untraditional spot – on top of active train tracks. Eight times per day, the local train market vendors quickly pull back the awnings of their stalls and adjust their baskets carefully between the tracks to ensure that oncoming trains don’t crush the produce, clothing, or Thai souvenirs they are peddling. By the time you’ve caught your breath after this close encounter of the ‘train’ kind, the vendors will have already readjusted their wares and returned to train market business as usual.A short distance past the Maeklong Railway Market lies Amphawa Floating Market, one of the most authentic places to visit in Bangkok and its surrounding areas. Situated on the lively canals of the Mae Klong, Amphawa Floating Market is famous for its quaint shophouses and fleets of traditional wooden boats selling everything from handmade Thai souvenirs to succulent grilled seafood. Amphawa is a foodie paradise and remains a favourite for Thai tourists and weekenders. Unlike its nearby cousin, Damnoen Saduak, Amphawa Floating Market manages to hold on to its traditional Thai roots and charm. After filling up on local snacks and grilled seafood, there’s no better way to end your Amphawa Floating Market tour than with an evening boat ride on the river. Discover the natural beauty surrounding the market, as well as the mesmerising light show that takes place nightly courtesy of the Amphawa fireflies that live along the shores. Smile as the trees come to life and the waters twinkle to the beat of these sparkling lightning bugs.The Amphawa Floating Market tour lets you dodge oncoming traffic at the Maeklong train market, buy grilled seafood from floating vendors, and take in the glittering lights of the Amphawa fireflies – all in one day! So, grab your appetite and sense of adventure as you embark on this incredible journey from Bangkok to Amphawa.
