Embrace a rural Thailand that is unlike Bangkok, bustling not on the city tunes. Amphawa cherises a life that is influenced by canals as it is located at the northwestern tip of Bay of Bangkok.
Reach this little village not far from the chaos of Bangkok yet sustaining a calmer lifestyle, in a private shuttle from Bangkok. Once here our first stop is at the Mahachai market, Thailand’s largest sea food market. The fishermen boast of their but visitors can find much more than seafood. The market is no less than an adventure. Situated extremely close the tracks of Mahachai commuter train the vendors literally put their lives on mercy of the motor man. Apart from fishermen boasting of their fresh and abundant catch visitors can also find stalls selling handicrafts such as wicker furniture, pottery and local sarongs, fruits and vegetables among the colorful offerings in the market.
Quick bite is so not an option to beat the stress of shopping. Having food when hungry is being content, but a lavish seafood lunch at the scenic riverside view is a blissful experience. Savor lunch at the banks of Mae Klong River. It’s now time to relax and rejuvenate. Baan Amphawa is one of the most luxurious resorts. It is encompassed in the cradle of nature and luxury. Enjoy your private time and a replenishing spa retreat.
Dress up for a starry evening, as the sun goes down the local food fair comes up. Relish some local delicacies and hope on to a night cruise. This night cruise will blow up your senses as it slowly trails into the Mae Klong River to spot where hundreds and thousands of fire flies flock to the tress and vegetation at the river banks. This ‘hard to believe magical’ space is in fact is a popular tourist activity called the Amphawa Firefly Watching. The night is a perfect end for day 1 at Amphawa.
On day 2, it’s another shopping trip at the world famous Amphawa Floating Market, Damnoen Saduak. Bargain with merchants selling from fresh vegetables, household stuff, clothes to handicrafts on small peddled boats. Further down the stream is the Cathedral of St. Mary (est.1896). Standing along the river its European architecture is a complementing contrast to the native ambience. After praying at the cathedral we move on to Wat Bang Kung temple, located in Bang Kung Navy Camp. It allows visitors to relive the past of Ayutthaya and its glory of martial art warriors. It now is time for some feline stress busters at the center of Siamese cats. It features Siamese cats called Wichienmas which formerly held a royal privilege that gave no right to raise or breed outside the Royal Palace. Before saying goodbye to Amphawa, submerge into this abundance of cuteness. HAVE A NICE TRIP, HAVE A SAFE TRIP!
