Something you will definitely not see in the States! Many pulled their little boats up to the walkway and sold their wares while most cooked for you on primitive stoves. Inside the market many stalls with too many trinkets we really did not need. They would not take dollars so bring the baht.

My wife and I used to go in early before the crowds and enjoy a mooch around, have a coffee and something to eat. We recently went to visit with our daughters and a friend and was shocked at being asked to pay a 300 BHT entrance fee each. It is simply not worth it as so many reviewers have... More

Basically this place is full of souvenir shops and local food. Mango with sticky rice, grilled squid, grilled pork, and other odd food you might think of? I think it is more worthy to stroll around authentic wet market instead of here. Even though you have paid for the entrance fee, you still have to pay to use their toilet!

Much better now it's had its extension finished. Take a boat through the market to get a nice feel for it then walk back. Go hungry so you can sample the food from the floating restaurants.

This used to be free to visit. It was fun. BUT NOT ANY MORE. I went there today and it now costs an amazing $36 just as an entrance fee for a family of four - a total waste of money. Yet again, tourists are being charged an entrance fee, simply to go shopping. There is nothing else to see... More

If you like pushing and shoving with all the Chinese tourists this is the place for you. Found it to be very cheesy and far too touristy for my liking. If you've never seen a floating market before maybe you would enjoy it. Lots of food and trinkets for sale, over priced entrance fee charged for foreigners.

Sorry but this was purely for the tourists, having visited other real floating markets, this appeared to be something especially constructed, and not the real thing. But if you want some serious souvenir shopping go.

It's not interested much, there are many local products for sell that you can buy for souvenir, by the way you have to pay for an admission fee otherwise they don't allow you to go in.
