    This floating market is not touristy at all. It is smaller, quieter, and more authentic i feel. The boats were full of produce and some of the vendors were actually cooking on the boats. Local people ...  more »

    Chartered a van to maeklong railway market and also visited Tha Kha Floating Market (30mins away) instead of Amphawa as it is not open yet at noon. This turns out to be a great experience. Tha Kha Flo...  more »

    In the morning a real floating market! A small boat tour is possible to buy fruits and vegetables cheap three times cheaper than in bangkok.

    Same story as most. Taxi took us there where they were asking for 4000 baht each. We assumed we wouldn't pay anything to visit a floating market. We didn't have that much in cash but were stupid and intimidated so agreed. Then I realized how much this was in our own money. I said to the taxi driver I wanted to go home and he looked dismayed, we'd paid 2500 and I said I want my money back and to return to my hotel (an hour and a half away!). The woman then showed us part of the ticket that said no refund, she dropped the price to 4000 baht for 2 of us when I still wanted to go back to the hotel. Had to endure the trip which was mainly awkward as you stop at stalls to buy cheap looking tat. A bit sad because it's ruined the whole morning. Would not recommend.

    Sells the exact same stuff as every other Thai market. Small, crowded and poorly laid out. Has ok good I suppose.

    It's not a big floating market but it has a certain charm and you might find food you wouldn't find somewhere else

    It's nice to see, but very touristic. Their are many Floating Markets in south east Asia I think this is not the best one. It's cheaper to buy something at the local markets.

    Long historical floating market with the best local goods.

Where to stay in Amphawa

The small canalside village of Amphawa has a number of guesthouses in quaint, wooden buildings, and some hotels and resorts. As it gradually develops, new midrange accommodations pop up here and there. Consider arranging your stay in Amphawa for weekdays, as you'll likely be one of the only tourists here--lower room prices and lots of availability mean it's easy to book on the fly. Be aware that the weekends bring in a lot of tourism; prices will be inflated, and many places fully booked, so reserve ahead.
