The Amphawa floating market is one of the special experiences that can't be missed when traveling to Thailand, especially if you're in Bangkok. The day is a lively market, while at night it becomes a 《Spirited Away》 inside a night palace. It's only open on Fridays and Saturdays, so make sure you check the schedule before you go.
You can get there by taking the light rail train from Bangkok's Hualamphong station to Savantakind Pier, then taking a ferry to Tallinn harbor pier. In the morning, stroll around the floating bazaar and buy some handicrafts; eat some delicious food (like tropical fruits or grilled fish); and watch some cultural performances.
Afterward, return to the pier at 4:00 pm so you can watch fireflies at night! A round trip costs about 500-1000 baht depending on how much you buy or what kinds of activities you choose to do while there.
🚗The best way to get to Amphawa Floating Market is by taking the LRT and Chao Phraya Express Boat. This will help you avoid the congestion in downtown Bangkok and save both time and energy in transportation.
⚠️Be wary of scams: In the bazaar, some merchants will inflate prices and sell fake goods so don't be gullible.
📎Healthily choose stalls that look relatively clean.
