Foreigners pay to enter, unless you have a Thai driving license or id card when its free. A manufactured 'floating market' which is little more than a bunch of wooden shops on piles above an artificial lake. A tourist trap on the coach tour circuit with little to recommend it.

This place is built on stilts and it is different from lot of places. But there is no reason for them to charge people to go shopping there. The merchandise on sale is nothing special. But we did taste for the first time in our lives, the "Mango Sticky Rice". The mango was indeed sweet and the rice...well, rice we... More

They are now charging an entrance fee to get in,which is ridiculous to pay just to shop! You would be far better off shopping at central shopping Center in pattaya, where it is air conditioned

This is a purpose built "floating market" tourist attraction built on the side of the highway on the outskirts of Pattaya. There is an artificial swamp and some rickety wooden walkways and shops selling tourist souvenirs, mostly made in China, to the mostly Chinese, Thai, and Russian tour groups bussed in by the thousands every day. If you are all... More

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.
