From Bangkok: Amphawa Floating Markets and Firefly Boat Tour

1. From Bangkok: Amphawa Floating Markets and Firefly Boat Tour

The markets of Thailand are some of the country’s most quintessential experiences; they give you a lively peek inside the more traditional culture of a country that often lives by water (or in this case, by the railroad tracks as well). On this full-day guided tour, you'll be taken to the most iconic markets on the outskirts of Bangkok, ending with a relaxing firefly boat tour to wind down from the day’s excitement. Maeklong Train Market is a fresh market situated right by a well-worn railroad. Watch the vendors expertly close and open their awnings to make room as the trains pass by. Wat Bang Kung is a striking Buddhist temple engulfed by the roots of a massive Banyan Tree. Learn about its bloody battle history and see the Golden Buddha inside. Located on the Amphawa canal, the Amphawa Floating Market is one of Thailand's more popular floating markets. Visit this riverside market and see vendors selling delicious treats like sweets and seafood, or browse some of the shophouses and restaurants. After sunset, when the lights have dimmed, you'll wind down with a relaxing river cruise. Your boat will take you a little further out where it is dark enough to see the fireflies, before heading back to your accommodations at 9:00 PM, ending a day of simple pleasures and tastes with the comforting sight of these lightning bugs.

Such a fun experience! The guide was so friendly, funny and knowledgeable about everywhere we went. I think this day was one of my favorite days of my entire vacation! Even the hour drive was relaxing and I was able to relax at the end of the night. Absolutely worth it!

Our tour guide was amazing. She’s so energetic and fun during the whole trip. The entire trip is a great experience!

All in all a fantastic day. It doesn't feel too long as it's fairly relaxed, even if it's lots of sights.

Despite the fact that fireflies were absent from the tour we both really enjoyed ourselfes

Very good guides, good atmosphere, good planning, everything is very good.
