This is an artificial floating market that resembles nothing from an authentic Thai floating market. You will find there mostly tourist souvenirs. The entrance price is something very negotiable. Thais pay a very small prices; As a tourism you could be asked everything from 100 baht per person up to 500 per person. Rip off! Avoid although there are not... More

This place is just for the uninitiated tourists. Given that the floating market outside Bangkok (and the tiger temple) have become runaway hits, almost every other city / tourist destination in Thailand seems to have added these attractions to their list. At the Pattaya Floating Market, the entire place is very filmy (just to catch the attention of the newbie... More

It`s a veeery touristic place. Not natural, just created for tourists. The market is very poor, the prices are even higher than in the city. You can visit it if you are close but don`t reach the place only for the market

What I love the most about this place is there were so many food stalls around. You should try the Mango Sticky Rice (superb delicious). Or if you want to have a small culinary adventure, try the crocodile satay (bbQ crocodile meat). Or for more beyond imagination experience, you can challenge your appetite by trying the roasted insects for snacking.... More

If you only have time for these markets then do it, the experience is fine for 1st timers and those that are short on time. If you have the time to do Floating Markets Bangkok then these are the ones to do. Pattaya markets are very crowded and the boat trip is a waste of time, don't waste the money... More

There was nothing really special here. But I thought it was OK for just passing some time. The prices seemed to be just average to me.

I love the architectures but I am not impressed with the goods and the wind is not really flowing at the place so it's very hot if you go there.

We reached almost at he closing time, so didn't spend more than an hour here, requires more to go around and see everything. There are shops and food carts of all sorts, prices are definitely not fixed and you can bargain your way. The idea and the setting is very nice for sure, not to be missed while visiting the... More
