Thailand; Bangkok – Amphawa Floating Market (1)

Hi!! Finally at the market. This is the other floating market that is near Damnoen Saduak Floating Market at Ratchaburi. This is Amphawa floating market is in Samuk Songkhram.

Nearly everyone; mostly locals and also tourist comes here, and it is opened on weekends only (lucky me!). It gives an impression of the canal way of live, where farmers in traditional clothing selling their produce unlike Damnoen Saduak, which is an afternoon market. So you can easily combine the two into a single trip (which I was doing. =) . It starts to get going around noon, but best time is after 3pm. Ok… enough. Let’s get going!

By the time I was there, it was already close to evening and the crowds were already there as seen below.

Lots of choices of food to admire and savor (Frankly, I cant recall the food or name of it as it was like 6 years ago).

  1. That is one crowded market. I’m not a fan of crowds and my anxiety kicks in when I’m standing shoulder to shoulder with people like that…but I’m sure you had a good time here, didn’t you?

    • haha.. I m not a fan if the crowd is too much till you cant see where you are stepping. I was in this situation once when I tried going up to Batu Caves on Thaipusam. Damn… that’s my first n last time and it is all pure body contact with sweat and smell from all angles. I guess you get my drift. =)

      • That’s so true. Body on body contact, never a pleasant thing for the nose and our bodies. It’s even worse with humid weather.

        Batu Caves. Oh yes. Been up there once, full of people and monkeys. Good once in a life-time experience, like all other experiences.

        • yup.. you r right there. It was really unpleasant indeed but guess the thrill or the feeling to join the big crowd was another feeling though; scared and excited as you never know what will happen at each step. =)

    • Thanks! Thanks for the comment buts sorry as I am not sure on the actual current situation as I am not in BKK now. Yup, I guess it will be better then once things stabilize or settle down.
