Amphawa has a nice and sizable floating market, which is frequented by many Thais as well, as opposed to some of the other and more touristy floating markets around Bangkok. This place is only 1.5 hours from Bangkok (and 10 min. from the Maeklong railway market) but only opens on weekends (afternoon) and can get really busy mid-afternoon. With the fishing port of Samut Songkhram being so close, the seafood there is very fresh and I definitely recommend trying it (BBQ or in a soup, ...) at some of the food stalls (either on land or on a boat). Also at nightfall you can go one one of the river boats to see many fireflies along the river.
