Day 2 of Trip to Amphawa Floating Market

Day 2 of Trip to Amphawa Floating Market

I'm staying two nights and three days at a Homestay at Amphawa Floating Market in Samut Songkhram. This is only a 90 minutes drive from Bangkok. I came this weekend because of pictures circulating on social media of a dried up river. People were canceling their trip because they thought the market would be closed. As I knew it was a tidal river, I decided to come and see for myself. Yes, it went quite low at one point, but only for an hour. It then went back up as high as normal, as you can see from these pictures. Visit my Photo Map for a list of places I visited on this trip. The following pictures I tweeted live during day two of the trip. Click here for day one.

  1. Thank you for your description of such a magical looking place! I’m planning my itinerary to Thailand now and was unsure of how much time to spend in Amphawa – your information helped a lot.
