What to see in Amphawa

Amphawa and the whole Samut Songkram region, is the floating markets area. The Amphawa's market which is more an evening market, the famous Damnoen Saduak in all tourist tours and the Tha Kha floating market and others around also. But the curiosity there is Mae Klong Railway Market that folds back each time the train is coming or leaving.
I also listed at the end of the page some good tours, excursions and activities that you can do in Amphawa or from Amphawa. Click here to see them.

Must-visits in Amphawa

Amphawa Floating Market Amphawa

Amphawa Floating Market

ตลาดน้ำอัมพวา
My opinion :
It is the main reason why visitors here come from Bangkok. It takes place from Friday to Sunday at noon and is particularly interesting to see at night. At night is also the famous fireflies visit.
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market Amphawa

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

ตลาดน้ำดำเนินสะดวก
My opinion :
Probably the most famous and visited floating markets, it is still nice to see ,early in the morning especially
Mae Klong Railway Market Amphawa

Mae Klong Railway Market

ตลาดรถไฟ
My opinion :
Mae Klong is also named Samut Songkhram. The vendors fold the stalls back at each pass of the train.
Amphawa community live museum Amphawa

Amphawa community live museum

ห้องนิทรรศการชัยพัฒนานุรักษ์
My opinion :
This small museum in the middle of Amphawa floating market is interesting because it hosts each weekend two amazing women who make bamboo hats or coconut palms hats and other objects in front of you. You can try too if you want.
Amphawa Chaipattananurak Foundation Amphawa

Amphawa Chaipattananurak Foundation

โครงการอัมพวา ชัยพัฒนานุรักษ์
My opinion :
More than the foundation itself, whose work to revive and preserve the know-how and traditions of Amphawa local life is admirable, it is the land that it owns with a coconut grove that is an example to local farmers for ecoresponsible production and its small production unit of artisanal coconut sugar that worths to come.
