Bangkok: Amphawa Floating Market.

A 45-min tuktuk ride from Maeklong Railway Market took us to the Amphawa Floating Market. There are bus services available as well but they aren’t as frequent as we hoped.

As compared to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, the one at Amphawa is comparatively less commercialized and touristy, so my guide book says. But, well, I haven’t been to the other to compare.

Fried quail eggs that scream “Cholesterol!”

Look, I found some of my childhood playmates, whee.

The floating market is at its liveliest around 3pm and gradually quietens as evening approaches. That’s when the evening sun casts a lovely, glistening glow on the slow, mellow town.

We arrived late afternoon, after our Maeklong adventure, and though we did not capture the most excitable facet of the market, the amiable locals and their relaxed pace of life stole our hearts.
