Just a collection of the stuff you can get at most shops in downtown Pattaya but at infalted prices, its worth going for a look around and seeing the market, but spoilt by so many tourists being pumped in by coach, pick a day with some breeze as it gets pretty hot there

I went few years ago when I visited Bangkok to a floating market and it was an amazing experience. When I went to Pattaya and knew that there is a floating market near by, I decided to go. But to my surprise it was totally different from what I expected. I expected to see lots of boats selling fresh fruits... More

If you get the chance go. A great experience taking the boat to the floating market. Seeing all the homes along the river, is amazing. Truly an awakening to see how people can live on the river. The market is an amazing busseling place filled with all kinds of goodies.Remember to bargain will the vendors (they enjoy it), and you... More

I had visited the floating market on 26 October 2014 with my friend. Very interesting place for a evening time pass and sight seeing. Many things to purchase

It's unique, attractive with traditional Thailand shows on boats. But some sanitation concerns. The water is dead and dirty.

Was disappointed with this floating market. I finely found a floating market that is about a hour south of Pattaya, It was a way better experience!

Visiting with friends, I was shocked to see a 200 baht entrance fee was being charged. As an ex-pat living here with a Thai driving licence, there was no charge for me, but having previously visited, I didn't think the fee was justifiable. Whilst the market has many stalls, selling trinkets and souvenirs, I didn't feel it worth my friends... More

Was very disappointed with floating market. Went 4 years ago and really changed. Very commercialised . So many boats they couldn't get around . Tour guide said it not worth visiting in July or August as it so busy . Interesting to see boats selling food.
