Maeklong Market is a unique, ‘must-see attraction’ that should be on every visitor’s itinerary. It is called ‘Risky Market’ because there is a train track that runs directly through the middle of the market. Literally within seconds of the train passing through the market vendors have to pull their goods, and themselves, out of the way. The precision timings and movements of everyone involved are fascinating to witness.
Amphawa is the second most popular floating market near Bangkok. It’s not as large as Damnoen Saduak but it’s more authentic, with visitors almost exclusively Thai. Located 50 km from Bangkok, this once small village has apparently been around since the mid-17th century. It’s become such a magnet for Thai weekenders that food
stalls have grown from the riverbanks and stretched far into the surrounding streets.
