Not much else. Flat out tourist trap, not our thing. The traditional Thai experience is few and far between here. Still very busy though.

I was totally embarrassed when I had to pay 200 Baht as a farang and all thai,s get in for free. I had to line up to pay, then line up to show my ticket. For the entry I got a hot very small bottle of water (5 Baht at 7/11) The markets are very average. Nothing special I will... More

Totally commercialized - not worth spending 200-300 THB for entering a set of highly priced shops - should ignore this place

Different from anything in the world. Totally for the tourist but so unusual as not to be missed. Food prices are cheaper than town restaurants, goods prices are a few Baht dearer. Worth a visit just for its novelty value.

Made specially for tourists. ... 15 min from city center. Nothing to see. only shopping and food court. Advise - Don't waist your time and money -It's not the flowting market in Bangkok. Go to the Islands

Pay your entry ticket and what you see is a replica of the actual floating market. It is just houses on stilts and a few boats selling their wares or food items. The boats do not move. Unless you pay extra to take a ride on the boats. The souvenir items sold here are more expensive than in Pattaya town... More

Pattaya floating market is approximately 20 minutes south of walking street area of Pattay by taxi, it is in my opinion a tourist attraction where you can do a bit of shopping and buy some food etc etc, for tourists you have to pay to gain entry but for Thai nationals its free, you can pay and walk around or...

This is an incredible experience but you have to get up too early to have this. You have to take a water taxi and also you can shop while roaming.

This is a total tourist trap rip off place from the moment you turn into the parking lot until you pay again for some jerk having scuffed up your car or windshield trying to wash it with a muddy rag seeking a huge tip. They want 50 baht to park and then demanded a 200 baht tip for scratching the... More
