On arrival, was surprised at the entry charge of 200 bahts per person. My nephews wife is local, so she got in for free. Can you imaging the uproar, if we in Great Britain, charged out tourists to visit our shopping malls. Walking round was not that special, on our ticket we were entitled to 6 bottles of water. Well...

This was such a waste. The vendors were rude, the merchandise was overpriced. Not worth the visit. It was designed for the stereo typical tourists.

Firstly to update the entry cost, it is free for Thai Citizens but there is a THB200 charge for foreigners. But even if it free in my opinion it is a total wast of time. Just a muddy pond with tourist shops and a few boats selling mainly food. Not a real floating market but just built for tourists. Also... More

Being described as a "must see" in Pattaya, a trip to the floating market was highly anticipated. I lowered my expectations to avoid disappointment- but still, I was disappointed. Ironically the floating market, though it may have floated once upon a time, doesn't now. A series of wooden piles were situated around this "lake". I counted 8 boats in my... More

When my Guide inform that we will go to floating Market, what in my mind we will go to the natural market. When the car arrive, all different with my mind. This location activity isnot a traditional market, but an area created by creative ppls to create a market for tourism only. They manage it with tourist activity.

Interesting enough for a quick stroll around. But let's get one thing straight the market is NOT floating; it's a misnomer. The whole place is built on wooden piles (stilts if you will) driven into the ground with added water. It's very touristy and you wont much in the way of bargains there, but it's interesting enough for a one-off... More

Just nothing to see. We went there and saw not many people around and it needs entrance fee so we decided to walk around the area outside the gate and left after 20 minutes.
