Amphawa Floating Market is one of the most well-known Thai floating markets, located around 1.5 hours drive from Bangkok in a province called Samut Songkhram. So we first drove over to the market in the mid-afternoon to get started snacking on some of the amazing Thai street food snacks available throughout the market.
Located in Bangkok’s neighboring province of Samut Songkhram, Amphawa floating market, is one of the oldest and most renowned tourist attractions in the Samut Songkhram province, offering an abundance of mouth-watering street food, canal side views, and an endless selection of arguably the country’s best Thai desserts. Amphawa floating market is about a 90-minute drive from Bangkok so expect to spend an entire day wandering around, eating, and soaking in the market’s unique views.
Watch a train run through Thailand’s most dangerous market! In Samut Songkhram, about an hour outside Bangkok, is Maeklong Railway Market, one of the largest produce and seafood markets in Thailand. But beyond the selection of fresh fruit and fish, the market has become infamous for one thing—the train that runs directly through it. In 1905, the Maeklong Railway built a commuter train line through the center of the popular market. But rather than move, the vendors adapted to the new conditions, working around the train that passes through eight times a day, seven days a week.
Maeklong Railway Market is located just outside of Bangkok, Thailand. It is considered to be one of the most dangerous markets in the world and it is also known by many as the famous Train Market in Thailand. Here you can witness a train run through the Maeklong market seven times a day! It is definitely something worth seeing when in Thailand and I highly recommend making the trip from Bangkok, Thailand. Join me for an awesome adventure!
Just outside of Bangkok Thailand are two of the world’s most unique markets, the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and the Maeklong Railway Market. We made the long trek out of Bangkok to visit both of these on a very hot day! The travel wasn’t easy, but it was definitely worth it! It has always been on our bucket list to visit this unique train market, so when we visited Bangkok it was top of our list!
This is an amazing day trip while in Bangkok, Thailand. Just an hour drive from Bangkok, you can find the best Floating market in Thailand, Damnoen floating market. Its such a unique place, you can spend few hours there, get a boat and wonder around the sellers, try some Thai food and interact with locals. After that 10 minutes from the market you will find yourself in this unique railway market, Maeklong railway market. Watch the video to see how people were packing their merchandise before and after train is coming. ITS CRAZY!!!
