The traditional Thai riverside way of life continues in Amphawa. Most of the action takes place along the waterfront walkways of Amphawa Canal, a tributary of the Mae Khlong River. Every weekend Thais flock to the Amphawa Floating Market. Old wooden houses and shopfronts retain some of their original charm. Eating is a major activity at Amphawa - there are many vendors in boats preparing an array of foods right in front of you. Seafood is the big thing here as the ocean is nearby and Amphawa is first and foremost a fishermans community.
