After visiting the floating market in Bangkok (which is much nicer, has more variety and is free), I thought I would check this one out. It was disappointing from the very beginning, when they attempted to charge us 299 Baht as opposed to the standard 200 Baht... Once I called them out for it, they reverted back to the 200... More

As much as this is a tourist trap, we still enjoying this place. Lots of food which you can sample since they came with small portions. Shopping was similar to most place in Pattaya with plenty of cheap souvenir to buy. There is an entrance fee to go in. We took the full package which gave up a ride on... More

Give this one a big miss. It's just a market that sells 'things' you can buy virtually anywhere in Thailand without paying an entrance fee. Give it a miss.

I am not a shopper but had a good time at the floating market. There were more stores than I had time to visit .. wow. There is everything a tourist could desire. Clothing, food, crafts, restaurants, candy, you name it. The day I went there were elephants outside to pet and take pictures with. Inside there were singers and... More

You get charged for using the restroom! The market itself is rather quiet and mainly is for tourists. Definitely not a market you typically see in South East Asia.

Don't expect too much since you are simply visiting a market, the boat trip was fun though, just make are you don't touch the water as it looks extremely dirty!

First of all, Do Not Eat before you go, the foods there are very cheap and taste very good too, there is many types of things to buy there at a fair bargain price, the down side is, it is build purposely for tourism, and there is even a shopping mall like part with a food court, which kinda killed...

Not really sure why it is called a floating market, other than the area is surrounded by water. The only thing that is floating here are some of the food boats that are paddled by locals selling various dishes. The market is a series of peirs that are connected a semi maze. The markets are pretty standard, and many carry... More
