Bangkok day 3, part 2 (last).
After Chatuchak, we proceed to Amphawa Floating Market.
(It’s bangkok 2nd most popular floating market, and the more “authentic” floating market and the more preferable one for the locals)
How to get there:
Take the Sky Train (BTS) to Victoria Monument Station, and then take a passenger van from Victory Monument ask for Samut Songkram or Amphawa. (There’s also bus that could reach amphawa directly, we took a bus back later on.)
We are actually saving our stomach for the main draw of Amphawa Floating Market, which is the grilled seafood prepared on the wooden boats moored around the central bridge.
Anyhow, we decided to go for a boat trip first.
While waiting in the boat, these is the sight we have beside us, it’s totally chaotic. & it’s really impressive to see how they fit so many stuff into such small space, & yet able to cook and move flexibly from boat to boat. We were totally amazed.
Time to hunt for seafood! (۶ꈨຶꎁꈨຶ )۶ʸᵉᵃʰᵎ
We didnt want to dine on the real tiny table, instead we got a seat on the balcony of the restaurant next to the river with proper tables and chairs. We get to witness how the food is being cook and brought directly from the boat.
Our dinner was satisfying. After filling up our stomach, we girls, decided to explore the floating market further. Passed by this thai sweet stall, and was so attracted by it’s beautiful packaging; then, we bought few packets of it.
Loving how the lights added extra charm, beautifying the whole atmosphere of the floating market.
I had always love lights, the city lights; & now i have a new found love, which is the reflective lights on the river. It’s beautiful. (♥ω♥*)
Amphawa floating markets is also well known for it’s souvenir stalls.
There’s a saying of “A visit to Thailand isn’t complete without a trip to a floating market“. & now, i conclude that my bangkok trip is completed. Head back to the hotel after that, the last bus is on 11pm, we departed on 10pm from amphawa, & it took us about 2 hours to reach the hotel.
Guess, in Bangkok is all about food hunting and shopping.
Dad suggested that we should have supper nearby, since along the street of our hotel, there’s a lot of local food stalls. We stopped by one of the most crowded stall.
After a rather satisfying meal, we decided to head for our last round of Thai massage before we leave bangkok the next morning.
Went ZEN Tara massage & spa which is also along the street of where we stay. This is the most decent looking one among all, and it’s always full. We are lucky enough to get our self a spot that night.
With this, I conclude my marvelous #bangkok trip.
If you ask me, I will definitely be back again! ヽ(愛´∀｀愛)ノ
Till then. Cheers! .。ｏ♡
