Amphawa is one of the most popular floating market near Bangkok, with visitors almost exclusively Thai. Located 50 km from Bangkok this once small village was apparently already present in the mid-Seventeenth Century. It has become such a magnet for Thai weekenders that food stalls have grown from the riverbanks and stretched far into the surrounding streets.
• Visit Thailand's floating markets on an immersive half day trip from Bangkok
• Shop by boat along a riverbank in a longtail boat at a floating market
• Buy plenty of unique and inexpensive traditional Thai snacks - the perfect souveniers from your trip!
• Watch a train pass through the middle of a bustling market at Maeklong Railway Market

What To Expect

Depart Bangkok at 11.30 AM and travel by air-conditioned vehicle to Amphawa Floating Market to join the locals as they buy and sell from boats on the canals of the Mea Klong River. Stroll along the boardwalk to watch the scenes unfold as farmers and fishermen sell snacks such as fried sea mussels and papaya salad from their boats. 

The main draw is of course eating seafood grilled precariously on wooden boats moored around the famous central bridge, serving an appetizing array of huge prawns, shellfish and squid. From noon until late in the evening, the smell is simply irresistible and customers flock to each side of the river all day long.

Very Unique day trip

This was a great tour, it was not a huge bus with 40 people so we got personal attention. The tour guide was great and it was amazing to see these local markets bring life to how people live daily here. I think it is something my daughters will never forget.
Excellent trip

highly recommended , this is a must tour while visiting bangkok , the whole experience of the maeklong railway track market and the train passing through it is simply amazing , however i would like to mention that a more appropriate place must be identified for viewing the passing of the train , the tour guide must be more aware of this and the tour company should look into this specifically ... we couldn't get a good spot but still worth the experience. The amphawa floating market experience was also amazing ,, the river side boats with restaurants on it and seating for food .. the boat ride itself around the island .. worth the money and time ...
Lovely day
