Overview

Hello, fellow seafood-lovers! Foodies know that one of the best ways to travel is with your senses, and there is no more enjoyable way to do that than: To eat. Everything. At the Amphawa Floating Market, enjoy the underrated pleasure of having the freshest produce right at your fingertips. From just-steamed fish to classic Thai dishes to refreshing fruit drinks, everything can be on the menu in the market.

The floating markets of Thailand are some of the country’s most quintessential features, and they can give you an exciting peek inside the more traditional culture of a country that lives by water while offering the convenience and excitement of a conventional tourist attraction.

Bring your walking shoes, because this tour is going to keep you the move. The day begins at the Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hoop), a fresh market situated right by the well-worn railroad. Watch the vendors expertly close and open their awnings to make room as the trains pass by. Business continues as usual, even during the busy hours.

The tour continues at the Amphawa Floating Market proper, where you can shop and eat local goods. Come prepared with an empty bag and empty stomach, which will be a pleasant experience to fill.

After sunset, when the lights have dimmed, the day ends on a relaxing river cruise boat that will take you a little further out where it is dark enough to see the fireflies. End a day of simple pleasures and tastes with a beautiful sight.
