I stayed in Pattaya for 10 days with my mum and we booked a few things to do such as the floating market, the tiger zoo, tiffanys show and the elephant sanctuary. I love markets and finding a good bargain and this market did not disappoint and was my favourite attraction of my stay. We got a bus to the... More

Definitely more Chinese than Thai in the market. Things are cheap with good quality, but not as bargain as Pattaya Night Market.

Nice experience but water is stinky but lots of activity and is not same as bangkok vegetable floating market but a small version of replica. Have a small village tour also which is worth a visit.

If you have spare time.. around Pattaya...there is "Pattaya Floating Market" Firstly there is an entrance fee of 200 THB per adult person.. Children below 1.3m is free. Most of the items sold there can be found at Pattaya market, sidewalk stalls and other attractions throughout Thailand. You can walk around the "Floating Market" or take a ride on wooden... More

We love this market. There is tasty & exotic food (fried scorpion exotic enough for you?) some good bargains to be found and some fun things to do. Make sure you find the Photographer, where you dress & get made up in traditional Thai style. The photos are professionally taken and presented, and they even take photos on your own... More

The Pattaya Floating Market is actually a good 20-30 minutes outside Pattaya, and worth a trip if you have absolutely nothing else to do. There are many shopping platforms built on stilted raised wooden docks. There is little that is actually floating about it, sure there are a few boats tied up at the side that will sell you various... More

As my title suggests if you are a tourist (without a Thai driving license) you're going to have to pay to enter the floating market… & if you haven't done your research you will get offered all manner of packages to tour the market instead of paying the 200 Baht entry fee (& as they give you a commemorative bottle...
