Amphawa Floating Market is the one Floating Market to go to! Why? Simply because it’s the one that locals go! It’s the second most popular floating market in Thailand after Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. However, the downside is that they are only open during the weekends from the afternoon.

Getting here requires a 90mins drive from Bangkok. You will arrive in Samut Songkhram province where Mae Klong Train Market is located too. If you are hungry, why not drop by a Thai Wanton Noodle Stall to have Ba Mee Kiao before driving inwards towards the market?

Want to know how Bangkok looked like in the past where there were more canals than roads? Amphawa fulfils that and offers you a quaint view!

Don’t miss out Amphawa Floating Market when visiting Bangkok! You can get here either by driving or by minivan. You can travel like the locals by taking a minivan from Victory Monument at about 80 baht per pax or you can travel with a group with arrangements from travel agencies or hotels.
