Kwang Chow floating market in Phetchaburi

A new tourist attraction in Nong Ya Plong district of Phetchaburi opened last year called Kwang Chow Floating Market (ตลาดน้ำกลางป่า-น้ำตกกวางโจว). This is sometimes written “Guangzhou”. The local community came together to create an oasis by careful water management. They set up rafts along the banks where shops sell food and local products. Some vendors also sell from boats. One of the highlights is a bamboo tunnel where the temperature is naturally maintained at a constant 25 Celsius. You can also rent boats or try the natural fish spa. The downside is that it is far from anywhere. Probably only worth visiting if you are in the area. The market is open Saturdays-Sundays from 9:30am to 5:00pm. For more information telephone 08 4540 3425.
