Samut Sakhon intro.Known as 'Maha Chai' by the local people, the tiny province of Samut Sakhon lies just 36kms to the west of Thailand's capital city; Bangkok. This proximity makes it a popular daytrip destination for tourists arriving at Thailand's main port. The Gulf of Thailand along with its famous white sand beaches and sparkling turquoise waters is located just two kilometres from Samut Sakhon, providing visitors with excellent opportunities for swimming, sunbathing and water sports. The Amphawa floating market is another of the province's key attractions and is one of the few remaining traditional river markets to have survived modernization in Thailand. Held between 12pm and 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays, this floating market is an explosion of vivid colour, smells and tastes with each farmer selling his own produce from his boat. Visitors can make their way from their hotels in Samut Sakhon to admire and indulge in the colourful array of fresh fruits, vegetables, rice and other local produce.
