Amphawa Floating Market, Thailand


One of the must-go floating market in Thailand for the late risers!

Amphawa Floating Market (One of the floating market you must visit when you’re going to Thailand) is an afternoon floating market by the canal near Wat Amphawan Chetiyaram. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, during 12.00 a.m. – 8.00 p.m., the Amphawa Canal is occupied by vendors who pack their boats with food and drinks, such as fried sea mussel, noodles, coffee, O-liang (iced black coffee), sweets, etc. There are also things for sale on wheelbarrows on the bank. Visitors can enjoy a cosy atmosphere and music broadcast by the community members, explore the market, have food, and hire a boat to see fireflies at night.

The best time to arrive is between 1 and 2pm as there are less people there. By 4pm, it is absolutely crowded and, as the walkways are very narrow, it’s difficult to see anything and difficult to walk around. As compared to other floating markets, Amphawa Floating Market is one of the market for late risers (like me haha!).

If you’re looking for a floating market that is near to Bangkok, This is the one you’re looking for!
