Its pretty out of the way and not near any other major attractions but worth a visit if you aren't going to the Bangkok markets. Its not really floating and you can visit all the stalls on foot, but you can rent a boat ride between the stalls for around 800 baht per person (includes regular 200 baht entrance fee).... More

Went here not expecting a hefty entry cost as a farrang, whilst Thais are free as standard. It was a little 'pre made' for my liking, when something is built like this to be something similar it just doesnt work for me. It was just an overpriced market out of Pattaya built on water. However some good food there to... More

It was like a replica of what a floating market should be. It was all stalls selling touristy tat. Waste of a trip. I don't think there was anything authentic there.

Floating Market is something new to visit but the surroundings and water etc.is very dirty,it isn't hygenic at all.possibly good encouragement for local businesses as small families can depend on sale of various items to tourists.but lot of hygenic things to be done

Of course, visiting the floating market is an experience by itself. Since the water stretch is long but narrow, it is amazing how the boatmen, and some of them women too, maneuver their boats around other boats. They will even stop the boats in the midst of many other boats so that you can bargain and buy the displays on... More

The floating market lost it authentic due to it commercialize tourist spot. Which you need to pay to enter even without riding a boat. However, the place is large. You are able to look at a lot of things. There are a collection of souvenir and food shops. The food are quite authentic. Overall i still enjoy the experience being... More

Here is a collection of souvenir and food shops, and is a pretty huge area. Plenty of souvenirs such as clothes, shoes, scarfs, and snacks to buy back for your loved ones, but price is a little stiff as it is a tourist area. Food is available as well, sold by vendors on boats. The place is pretty clean and... More
