“Best place to stay in Amphawa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2010

If you want to visit a 'real' floating market, that is not for tourists, but actually used by the Thai people, then Amphawa is the place to visit. Chotika is a great place to stay to visit all the local area has to offer. The owner is extremely helpful & can speak excellent English. He arranged for a tuk-tuk to take us where we wanted to go (30 baht to the floating market) and told of us a cheap way to visit the Tree Temple (just across the river to the temple for 5 baht). The Chotika is great to just sit, relax & watch the world go by as you see who lives and works on the river from morning until night. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights here (only downfall is you can hear everything your neighbours are saying/doing) but we would certainly go back again & recommend this great place to anyone. It is superb value for money.

Whilst Chotika wasn't our first choice due to its location, it turned out to be an excellent second choice for our 3 night stay in Amphawa. Chotika is located around 15 minutes walk from the floating market, a pleasant walk during the day or a cheap tuk tuk ride after dark (or a few too many Singhas), although 2 out of 3 of our nights we received free motor bike rides home courtesy of a great bar along the main canal (can't remember its name). The benefit of staying here is that it is located in a more residential area, therefore very peaceful with a very convenient 7/11 (Thai style) on the opposite bank of the canal. Rooms are simple but very clean and spacious with a small area to sit outside looking over the canal. We would definitely stay at Chortika again. As for Amphawa, it was fantastic to find and stay somewhere where the Thai tourists heavily out number the farangs. Enjoy sitting on the side of the canal eating freshly cooked seafood prepared and served from the sampans moored along the canal side. Friday and Saturday are the nights to stay, after which Amphawa returns to a sleepy hamlet.
