I am not a shopper but had a good time at the floating market. There were more stores than I had time to visit .. wow. There is everything a tourist could desire. Clothing, food, crafts, restaurants, candy, you name it. The day I went there were elephants outside to pet and take pictures with. Inside there were singers and... More

You get charged for using the restroom! The market itself is rather quiet and mainly is for tourists. Definitely not a market you typically see in South East Asia.

Don't expect too much since you are simply visiting a market, the boat trip was fun though, just make are you don't touch the water as it looks extremely dirty!

First of all, Do Not Eat before you go, the foods there are very cheap and taste very good too, there is many types of things to buy there at a fair bargain price, the down side is, it is build purposely for tourism, and there is even a shopping mall like part with a food court, which kinda killed...

Not really sure why it is called a floating market, other than the area is surrounded by water. The only thing that is floating here are some of the food boats that are paddled by locals selling various dishes. The market is a series of peirs that are connected a semi maze. The markets are pretty standard, and many carry... More

We had been to this place 2 years back. The entrance fee is nominal and we can shop at our own pace. It is the usual shops but surrounded by water .A nice pleasant visit.

It's not a real floating market. They have just build this one to sell the usual souveniers to the turists. If you have to pay entrance fee depends on what country you come from. Not worth a visit

This attraction is free to all Thai nationals and expats, with a valid Thai driving licence or work permit. For the tourists for which it is really geared are asked to pay a nominal fee for entrance, life is unfair like that. This particular attraction is what you make it, dependent on your frame of mind and expectations. If you... More

I went to this place last year with my wife and a bunch of Thai kids (her nieces and nephews). It was just a bunch of typical market stalls that are a dime a dozen throughout Asia. Difference with this one is that its based on and around an artificial water body to mimmick the cultural floating market experience. It... More
