I love the architectures but I am not impressed with the goods and the wind is not really flowing at the place so it's very hot if you go there.

We reached almost at he closing time, so didn't spend more than an hour here, requires more to go around and see everything. There are shops and food carts of all sorts, prices are definitely not fixed and you can bargain your way. The idea and the setting is very nice for sure, not to be missed while visiting the... More

As others have said it is not a proper floating market and charging 200 Bht entry is a bit of a rip off. Most of the stuff sold in the shops can be brought elsewhere in Pattaya but it is ok if you have run out of other things to do ..

If you have been to the real floating market outside Bangkok, you will quickly realise this is a very feeble attempt to duplicate something unique. Some of the stall holders were sleeping in the shops. You could buy any of the merchandise in Central Festival. Not worth the effort in my opinion

This is a market - selling stuff to people and they wanted an entry fee - we walked away. Probably good for them for the heaps of busloads that have no choice. We walked away.

Over rated. It is essentially a series of shuttered concrete canal ways with filthy water and you get taken in a boat along them to shops trying to sell you tourist souviners. There are things that are very good in Thailand, including the character of street life, with food carts pamping their horns at you etc, the friendly ness of... More

We had been told by friends it's a must see in Pattaya. But it's definitely a major tourist attraction,food looked good as for souvenirs the beach and streets are cheaper. Glad we went to have a look.

Though it is a major attraction however it was very stinky with crocodile and snake meat being sold around. However I picked up a few souvenirs pretty cheap from here.
