Amphawa is the second most popular floating market near Bangkok, not as large as Damnoen Saduak but more authentic, with visitors almost exclusively Thai. Located 50 km from Bangkok this once small village was apparently already present in the mid-Seventeenth Century. It has become such a magnet for Thai weekenders that food stalls have grown from the riverbanks and stretched far into the surrounding streets. Bangkokians love this place so much, that past noon it becomes impossible to walk. The best way to enjoy Amphawa is to come before 10:00 and leave soon after lunch.

Sightseeing
The Ancient City is his attempt to give mankind a rudder, his slightly eccentric remedy for what he sees as "the moral deterioration of human society". Set in 320 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens on the outskirts of Bangkok, its success or failure in this lofty ambition is not clear. What is, however, is that it succeeds at preserving Thailand's singular heritage, its wonderful art, customs and culture for future generations.Opening Hours: 08:00 - 17:00 Location: Samut Prakan, Bangpoo How to get there: Taxi is probably the best way to go. Tell the driver "Muang Boran, Samut Prakarn". Or take the BTS Skytrain to On-Nut Station, then continue on taxi for about 30 minutes.

Also known as Talad Dek Neaw ("hipsters" market), this market, formerly located in an old train depot, has moved across the city behind Seacon Square, and become the talk of the town.

There are over 2000 stalls here, and the biggest collection of antiques to be found in Thailand. There are also lots of food stalls and impromptu tricked out VW bus bars, offering cheap cocktails and beer.
