Different, but that's about it

We checked out the Pattaya floating market on a Celebrity Cruise excursion. It's different, but that's about it. It's filled with food vendors and trinket vendors. I'm pretty... read more

A favorite with the coach tours due to it being a contained site, I rate this experience along with a few other of the more disappointing experiences in Pattaya. Located on the six lane Sukhumvit Rd, getting there is a challenge that just isn't worth it. Fake and contrived sum this place up with the only authenticity being that the... More

We checked out the Pattaya floating market on a Celebrity Cruise excursion. It's different, but that's about it. It's filled with food vendors and trinket vendors. I'm pretty sure it's just for tourists. Nothing's wrong with that. If you're going here on a cruise ship shore excursion, save your money and do a tour on your own of Pattaya. Go... More

This place is OK but nothing to really write home about. 200baht to get in and you can buy extras like trips round on a boat. There's loads of places to buy all kinds of goods including plenty of food and drink options. If you're the kind of person that likes to buy a load of old rubbish, you'll love... More

The idea was to build an authentic floating market as it has been in the earl and mid 20th century. But it turns out as a walkway with one shop sticking to another selling useless and far overpriced junk. sure, there are some "Klongs" (Water Channels) with some boats - and guess what they are doing? Right, selling useless junk.... More

The Pattaya Floating Market is building on a pool, not the nurture river market like others. Area is dirty and transportation is poor.

Unique concept of walking or boating around squares of small shops selling authentic food and items. Each turn takes u with surprise with multiple activities going on- e saw Thai boxing and dancing in particular. Not to be missed.

Nice tourist place but overly priced. Good one time experience. Place is averagely maintained. Many shops around selling souvenirs, clothes, snacks and dried food items.
