    See for yourself but you’re not missing much!
    Classic Thai street food in an extremely hot and overcrowded environment. This is not the place for souvenirs as it is all food items. Based on the hot temperature and market conditions I would not attempt to try anything there for fear of getting sick and wanted to leave after one walk through everything.

    This charming inn is only about 300 meters from the Amphawa Floating Market. The owner exhibited genuine concern in doing her best to help me make arrangements for transport and laundry. They are truly genuine and exhibit true Thai hospitality.

    A good place to visit
    This vibrant location is teeming with numerous boats and people, offering a wide array of Thai local goods and souvenirs at reasonable prices. However, one minor drawback is the high level of crowding during weekends. If you prefer a more relaxed experience, it is advisable to avoid visiting on weekends.

We had 1 day so we organised the train and floating Market. The boat Tour was overpriced. 3000 Baht for 90 minutes. Not worth the money. It is our 5th floating market in Thailand.
The boat Tour was nice. Not very crowdy but we went on wednesday and there werd very few boats. Along the Canal you See nice Standard Souvenirs and clothes Shop. The typical Feeling with a Lot of vendor s boats on the River is Missing here. The max you can get is some Mangos or ice cream.

Nb: the boat is a reap Off :-( but it was interesting

I went with mt family and it is cool to browse around the market to see all the things that they are selling. However, I felt it was only worth it when I took a-boat around because there is more to see in the surrounding area.

Please do not come to this scam place!! I brought my family to here and regretted.

Be careful of VAN scam, where the driver will bring u to the boat port, and intro u the boss(owner of the port) u have to buy the boat package to tour around.

Firstly, goids are too overpriced 3x4x than Chatchuchak (which are already pricy).

Second, the floating market lost its charm and authenticity compared to years ago. It just became one big tourist trap.

Third, travelling to there is way too long and at least 1-2 hour and if u get stuck in Bangkok’s traffic jam, it will be longer. This means it’s better to skip this nonsense and enjoy the night markets and the shopping malls here.

It’s just not worth it anymore. I’m angry I got scammed with my family at this tourist trap. Fked up place and ruined my day.

It's was really a horrible experience. Once you reached there's a lady selling their package for 4 of us like 6000 baht and add on 2000 for a add on temple visit but this add on was just a 15 mins to 20mins riding no where in river. Reached a place then still need wait for our car to the temple so we decided to call off as we are so tired. They will keep selling stuff on side of the stall at a higher price than bangkok city. Also, they took a picture of us and show us at 500 baht which really turn me off at start. So when I said expensive, he said 400 baht so we had no choice to take as I don't know what they will do to us cos we on their ride. It was really super bad experience for us and felt cheated like on pirate ship.

Way too commercialized, loses its authenticity. Relatively expensive, food far from good, compared to true Thai cruise. Overall very disappointing

Absolutely not acceptable the way they rip you off. The trip to get there from our hotel took 90 minutes, once there we had to pay 2000 baths pr. Person to sail around really pleading sales people, and whey would not take no as an answer.... everything was expensive and not to forget the poor animals... OMG stay away...it doesn't even deserve 1 star

The floating market tours have become a scam in general from my own experience. There are very few that are still authentic. Most local travel agencies advertise those markets with beautiful colorful old pictures full of boats of the floating markets from many years ago. There was not much to see in Amphawa, there was only one or two boat on the river selling food. All the stalls are on the ground like a regular market. We wasted money and precious time to drive there with an agency. There was no floating market and the town is not worth to visit.
