Samut Songkhram

Samut Songkhram is a small province in the central of Thailand. Although it does not cover a lot of area, the province still has many attractions that are worth visiting. The Amphawa Floating Market is one of the most popular floating markets in Thailand. The merchants sell their goods in their Boats. Alongside the Canal, there are shops opening to sell food, drinks, snacks, clothes, and souvenirs.

You might have seen videos of the Rom Hoob Market (Umbrella Market) online as it has been a travel hotspot for travellers of all ages and origins. The market is located near MaeKlong Train Station, and right next to the railway. Shopkeepers will open their umbrellas or awnings during their business time and shut them when a train comes.

Wat Amphawan Chetiyaram is one of the many prestigious temples in Thailand. However, what makes this temple different from the rest is that the area in the back of this Temple was a house of King Rama I or the first king of the current dynasty of Thailand and his queen. The house is also the birth place of King Rama II.

King Rama II Park is also known as the King Rama II museum, the attraction is located near Wat Amphawan and Amphawa Floating Market. It exhibits ancient artifacts from the early Rattanakosin era such as Bencharong, kitchenware, Thai mythical masks, etc.
