AMPHAWA: THAILAND’S HISTORIC FLOATING MARKET

We can tailor this trip to suit your specific requirements
Any aspect of the itinerary can be altered, from excursion to accommodation
OVERVIEW ITINERARY TOUR DETAILS REVIEWS

Take a guided journey out of the futuristic Thai capital to Amphawa, an old-world water town which deserves its reputation as one of Thailand’s most beloved markets.

Centralized around waterways, Amphawa thrives on the market’s popularity which creates a buzzing atmosphere all along its wooden walkways which grant access to stilted teak houses.

You’ll feel trapped in a time warp as you negotiate narrow boardwalks that line the canals and climb on board traditional long-tail boats to navigate the waters and browse the floating market stalls.

Feast on freshly prepared seafood at local, traditional Thai restaurants, and investigate lesser-seen attractions in the region often overlooked by self-guiding travelers.

Make a stop at Samut Songkhram Province on the way to Amphawa and see the charming The Kha floating market and also visit a nearby market set up on the train lines which retracts when each train passes through.

See the unique site of monks collecting alms by boat in Amphawa as locals flock to the canal side to pay tribute in the early morning.

Take a ride from Amphawa through the canals to Damnoen Saduak in the neighboring Ratchaburi Province early enough to avoid the tour buses the iconic market attracts.

See traditional Thailand at its best and shop for authentic souvenirs unique to the floating markets on this time-traveling tour.
