Travel deals to Amphawa! Cheap bus & hotel offers hand picked for you.
Amphawa Floating Market is one of the most famous floating markets in Thailand. It is located on the canal near Wat Amphawan Chetiyaram where the two canal Wat Chula and the river Mae Klong meet in the area of Samut Songkhram Province. It is a market that is created by the cooperation of the people in the community to preserve the way of life of the community along the river. Amphawa city is located about 75 kilometres from Bangkok and there is a direct air-conditioned bus line between the two cities. The bus ride takes around 1.5 hours. At the market one can find all kinds of goods: clothes, fruits, prepared delicious food and a wide variety of souvenirs. The houses built directly on the river and the slow rowing of the locals creates a busy but relaxing atmosphere and provides a good image of how life has been in the old days. Besides shopping and wandering around, you can do other activities such as boat excursions that show you 5 temples along Amphawa canal which is 50 kms long. It is recommended to stay overnight because the show of fireflies at night are also one of a kind. If you want to stay at the hotel there are many waterfront accommodations close to nature, such as the "Amphawa Nanon Hotel & Spa" and for a bit more authentic feel we can also recommend the "Rimrabeang Amphawa Cafe and Suite". If you are looking for a less luxurious and cheaper accommodation option then we can recommend trying out the Oyo 1026 The House Amphawa house/apartment or the Hometown Hostel which is located a bit farther away from the canal.
