Around the Amphawa Floating Market
After we checked into the hotel (click here for full review of the hotel – it was fabulous by the way!), it was time to explore the market.
The market was a very charismatic experience as shops were lined up on the wooden boardwalks along the river banks. There are about 2 to 3 bridges that will link both sides of the boardwalks across the riverbank. The bridge is a good vantage point to see the overview of the market.

For us one of the special things we saw was a local grocery shop that were selling postcards and also offering postal services. The photos on the postcards were nicely taken and show just how pretty the Amphawa Market was.
If you want to buy a postcard it only costs 20 baht per piece. Furthermore you can immediately mail them out by putting the cards into a tiny post box located right beside the stall.
Other things you will see are cool random things such as street performances, and vendors selling snacks.
