Markets are often hectic, crowded places and when combined with the Bangkok climate they can test even the most ardent shopping fanatic’s resolve. For unique things to do in Bangkok, however, and a way to shop without the tiring crowds, you might want to try one of the less-known floating markets like the rural Amphawa Floating Market. The alternative is our famous Ultimate Local Floating Market & Boat Tour.
Few are likely to want to pass up the opportunity to get some shopping done in such a relaxing manner and your host will be glad if you ask them to go along with you. It is a good idea to have your host join you as a guide as you are likely to find some items that you won’t recognise.
