Fireflies watching boat tour

Fireflies watching boat tour is a popular night activity for Amphawa floating market visitors. Visitors can take a boat ride along the bank of the Amphawa canal to see fireflies in the cork trees.

If there is just 2 of us, can we get the boat tour?

Yes, if you really want to take the private boat ride, you are welcome to book the tour with us. However, since the smallest boat has 15 seats, you have to pay full service fee like you accommodate full capacity of the boat. If our private boat charter is too expensive for you, we recommend you to travel to the Amphawa floating market by yourself, and join the boat tour with other travellers at the market which will be cheaper.
