Thailand Floating Market, Amphawa
Today, My mother told me, she wants to go to the Floating Market, Because she watched too many movies before, if she has the opportunity, she wishes can go to look around.
Such as Chinese movie 「Go La La Go!」the actress name was Xu Jinglei, their movie scenes in Pattaya Floating Market.
But, Pattaya Floating Market is too far for us, so we searched on google, finally, we found close our floating market nearby Bangkok, the name called Amphawa floating market, I arranged our luggage and went out at nine o’clock.
PS, Pattaya Floating Market in Pattaya, Thailand
Remember last time I went to Bang Saen Beach and had some bad experience, this time I prepared many different languages such as Chinese, English, and Thai by places, if I need to ask someone, I just show he/she my information.

Started to go to Floating Market
In the morning, We took Grab to go to Ekkamai and went to Eastern Bus Station, when we arrived Eastern Bus Station, the tickets office between the front and back door, you can see several desks, the one of that.
The one desk frontend below written 976, that is line 976 minivan bus, you can ask the receptionist. You want to buy the ticket to Mae Klong Railway Market, the one-way ticket is 90 THB.
PS, When you bought a ticket, you can not go anywhere, because the receptionist collected around 12 to 14 passengers, they will start to go to Mae Klong Railway Market.
We went to Mae Klong Railway Market spent two hours, because of some accidents on the highway, so traffic very bad. We arrived at 12 o’clock!
Because we were hungry, when we arrived at 976 bus station, we found the small restaurant ate lunch. Suddenly every food is cheaper and yummy !! A meant price is 35 THB, 35 THB for lunch OMG.
Actually, we planned to go to two floating markets, one is Damnoen Saduak floating market anther is Amphawa floating market, after lunch, we went to the Damnoen Saduak floating market by Ding van.
Damnoen Saduak boat ticket price was too expensive, the vendor said 6,500 HTB for three people, I can not believe this costs. Before I checked the ticket price for one people just around 200 ~ 300 THB, so I can take this costs, after our negotiation, we deal 2,500 THB for there people.
After the travel, I compared two floating markets, I recommended the Amphawa floating market is best one because you can go around the river that has a lot of food vendors and goods, you can buy.
At nightfall, you can see firefly by boat. (It is off the point.)
Show you Damnoes Saduak floating market some pictures, our driver is nice and kind, always took a picture with us.
We went to Amphawa floating market by boat, there has much fun, you can eat, buy and play in Amphawa floating market.
We are so tired, finally, we went to Amphawa 966 minivan bus station, we bought 70 THB ticket for each go back Bangkok, today we spent 90 + 79 ( minivan ) + 2,500 ( Damnoes Saduak boat ticket ) + 700 ( foods ) = 3,360 THB.
If we did not go to Damnoes Saduak floating market, we will spend a total 840 THB… this is for your information, if you want to go there, you need to negotiate first.
