Amphawa Floating Market
Explore the weekend only Amphawa Floating Market, one of the lesser known gems of Bangkok. Amphawa is frequented mostly by local Thai residents who congregate to buy and sell everything from cooking pots and fresh flowers to wind-up toys and fried sea mussels.
At the market, vendors pack their boats and begin cruising through the waters, waiting for someone to wave them down to buy their wares. The area around the market is a lovely place to stroll, as well; in this area you will find open air restaurants, canals rich with colorful boats, and crisscrossing bridges packed with people.
