Things to see and do

  • Bang Nam Phueng weekend market
    4.5 stars

    It's called a "floating market" by locals and a few vendors do prepare food on small boats in the canals that surround the market's raised footpaths, but it's not a true floating market like the one at Amphawa. Even so, it's filled with small countless colourful vending stalls set along narrow ... read more

  • Firefly Village (Muubaan Hing-hoy)
    3.5 stars

    Another excellent place for spotting birds and wildlife, we spotted a giant crane swooping over one of the canals near one of the trails.

The gallery features hundreds of them displayed in bowls and cared for by professional biologists. A few larger tanks with some odd and ... read more

  • Wat Song Thum
    3.5 stars

    Built some 300 years ago, the spacious temple grounds include an ubosot with an ancient wooden Buddha image transplanted from Sukhothai a shrine to Brahma that's known among locals to bring good luck to those who leave offerings before it, and a large white chedi built in Mon style. It's still ... read more

  • Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park
    3.5 stars

    The park boasts well-groomed gardens, extensive nature trails and ponds teeming with fish. A lush and romantic setting, it's a great place to spend an hour bicycling, hiking, bird watching, feeding the fish and kicking back at one of several gazebos perched over the ponds. Admission is free.

  • Phlaeng Faifa Fort
    2.5 stars

    All that remains today are a few crumbling stone structures and canons, but a pleasant park has been built around the ruins. While perhaps not worth going out of your way for unless you're a serious history buff, the fort is worth a peek and the park is a good spot for a picnic if spending an ... read more
