For hundreds of years, floating markets have been at the center of communities in Thailand. Originally built along canals and rivers, the markets emerged during a time when water transport played an important role in daily life. Today, one of the country’s most popular is the Amphawa floating market. Located 45 miles from Bangkok on the Mae Klong river, this 30-mile-long market features a cornucopia of produce, seafood and traditional Thai dishes to satisfy every taste bud.
This Great Big Story was made in partnership with Tourism Authority of Thailand.
