Shops along Amphawa floating market which is located 50 km from Bangkok. This once small village was apparently already present in the mid-Seventeenth Century. It has become such a magnet for Thai weekenders that we went on Friday to avoid the crowds. The food stalls have grown from the riverbanks and stretched far into the surrounding streets. The main draw is of course eating seafood grilled on wooden boats moored.
Customers perch on rows of narrow steps leading down to the water and food is brought directly from the boats onto really tiny tables. There are restaurants with real tables and chairs and food venders everywhere.

Wooden shops along each side of the Wat Chula canal sell Amphawa souvenirs from T-shirts to some more interesting creations. In all streets radiating from the market you can find an incredible array of local food sold from small carts.
There are longtail boats to explore the surrounding canals and rivers. Fireflies can be seen along the river at night and there are several Buddhist temples.

View of the Inside of the Outer Gallery of Angkor Wat:
Angkor Wat ("Capital Temple") is a temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world measuring 162.6 hectares. It was originally constructed in early 12th century by King Suryavarman II as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire and gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious center since its foundation. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia (national flag) and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.
Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple-mountain and the later galleried temple. It is designed to represent Mount Meru. Within the moat is the outer wall 3.6 kilometers long and there are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the center of the temple stands a quincunx of towers. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs, and for the numerous devatas (deity) adorning its walls.
