Amphawa Floating Market or Amphawa Evening Market is one of the largest and oldest floating markets in Thailand. The market is located in Samut Songkhram province, just 70 kilometers southwest of Bangkok and it takes approximately 1.5 hours to get there from Thai capital.
This one-day itinerary is exactly the same like we completed when visiting Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hub) and Amphawa Floating Market from Bangkok and using exclusively local transportation along the way. It wasn’t the easiest and fastest but definitely the cheapest and most enjoyable way to visit these two famous markets. The journey itself is a wonderful adventure you won’t experience when joining the tour or going to Maeklong Railway Market and Amphawa Floating Market by a private car.
There are a number of options available when considering transportation from Bangkok to Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hub). You can take a minivan from Sai Tai Mai Bus Terminal, join the tour, get a private car or get there by local train. We wouldn’t say that getting to Maeklong Railway Market by local train is the easiest and fastest option but it’s definitely the cheapest and most enjoyable way, especially if you are an adventurous person like we are.
Talad Neon Night Market is one of the newest additions to Bangkok’s night market scene. Opened in Pratunam district, which is a very popular location to stay for Bangkok visitors, Talad Neon Night Market is mostly targeting tourists and not the local crowd.
For those who love shopping for antiques and retro items, Bangkok has plenty of interesting places to offer. Bangkok’s night markets such as Talad Rot Fai Srinakarin and JJ Green offer the opportunity to get many interesting retro and vintage goods while shopping Thai style on weekend evenings. Another good place to do your shopping for antiques in Bangkok is Chatuchak Weekend Market and the area around it.
Palladium Night Market is a small night market in Bangkok’s Pratunam district. Every night the night market takes place in front of The Palladium Shopping Mall which is located just across the street from Pratunam Market.
Plenty of family friendly attractions can be found in Bangkok. The Madame Tussauds Bangkok wax museum and SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World aquarium are two of Bangkok’s highlights that can be visited on the same day with a combo ticket.
Asiatique the Riverfront is an unusual night market in Bangkok. Occupying a large complex of old warehouses on the bank of Chao Phraya River, Asiatique the Riverfront feels more like an open-air shopping mall than the real night market.
Patpong Night Market is one of the most famous night markets in Bangkok. The night market is located inside Bangkok’s oldest red light district – Patpong. Patpong Night Market is surrounded by go-go bars and beer bars making the shopping experience here really exclusive.
