This is just a market (not too bad) however it is a false one in a man made pond! Free to Thais (again) but 200 bht (£2) for foreigners although you get a small bottle of warm water!!! Cost a lot more if you want to go round it on a boat even though you won't be able to buy... More

I have visited this floating market and i found it ok.. not so interesting. Locals visit this place to buy their day to day goods you can just pass by this coz for sure you will not in the mood of purchasing the stuff. Ont the top of it the water is very dirty and smells really bad so if... More

This market is not authentic at all. At the time of the visit, there were only very few boats on the river (around 10) and the rest of the visitors and sellers are on the walking site. It is more a shopping mall with very nice decoration. You can buy there typical market stuff, but the prices are higher. The... More

A place out if world. Really amazed the way it's built. Beautifully planned, has enough shops to keep you busy with souvenirs, food and drinks. I took the small boat which is rowed along the market. I will give full marks to the place!

If you have never been to a floating market and you have nothing else to do then surely you should visit this place. Else not much recommended. The 200 bht entry fees per person was not worth it. As vegetarians we could not find much options to eat either. For shopping it was okay. We got umbrellas though for 200... More

As has been previously mentioned at 200 TBH each to get in it's a bit insulting. Despite that it's interesting enough to pass a couple of hours. However, found a number of the stall holders ignorant and rude which is not what I'm use to from the land of smiles. The first stall as you enter with all the wooden... More

Pattaya Floating Market is only 200 baht for foreign visitors and offers seemingly endless stalls offering food and souvenirs. Walkways line the water area, shaded and not too hot at all. Floating market boats roll by occasionally, offering a replica of a floating market for the tourist point of view. Well worth the admission price to attend!
