Grab the opportunity to explore Amphawa, one of the most popular floating markets near Bangkok, with visitors almost exclusively Thai. Located 50 km from Bangkok this once-small village was 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 long-tail boat at a floating market. Buy plenty of unique and inexpensive traditional Thai snacks - the perfect souvenirs from your trip! Watch a train pass through the middle of a bustling market at Maeklong Railway Market
