Shop the Magnificent Floating Markets
On the weekend, escape the bustle of central Bangkok
for the Amphawa Floating Market, a bohemian trading post nestled along the Mae Khlong River canal network. Meander along the waterway and browse local crafts, retro kitsch, and delicious seafood, hawked by vendors directly from their long-tail wooden boats. To immerse yourself in the experience more fully, hire a boat of your own and barter alongside the floating merchants.
