Now let’s go back on track to food and culture in Thailand… because if you want to explore the country’s iconic floating markets on a fun whole day tour and get immersed in the authentic local life, Amphawa is a good place to start.
Even if Damnoen Saduak is the biggest and most famous market in Bangkok and Amphawa is a bit less popular, its railway market offers a unique shopping experience that is interrupted by a train regularly running right through the market space!
Watching the tracks go from being completely covered in market stalls, to the shop owners pulling in their wares before setting up all over again in a matter of seconds is a true sight to behold!
Discover a variety of goods, from fresh produce, dried seafood, to Thai snacks during your visit … and don’t forget to hold your breath as the train passes by.
Going next to Amphawa Floating Market, this location is another authentic market mostly popular with the locals for weekend shopping.
You can join the locals in their search for the best bargains at the floating markets, or simply enjoy your food in Amphawa, famous for its delicious shellfish and other seafood cuisine.
And very important, don’t forget to stay hydrated. You can easily find fresh coconut. In fact, every 1m… and it is around 25 baht. Believe me, you will need it.
