I cannot recomend anyone traveling to the outskirts of Pattaya on a busy main road to pay Bt200 to come in here? Hard to get to if you do not have your own transport (several Songtel’s would do it from the beachfront and the red hop on / off bus also stops here) - it comprises a manmade lake with... More

Been there a few years ago but didnt remember we had to pay. 800 b for 2 adults 2 children. After seen 5 shops you have seen it all. They all sell the same souvenirs overpriced as well. You find the same stuff inside the town. It is no nice place to sit down to eat and relax. We thought... More

The place offers boat ride packages, but I wouldn't recommend taking them before hand. Take the normal entry and you can walk it (if you are into walking a good amount). But if you want to see a monkey show, ride a zip line and get a massage (open and just your back) for free, then go for the package.... More

The floating market was alright. Still don't get why there is a fee to go in but Glad that we didn't take the boat to get around as it definitely seemed better to just walk around. Took about 2/3 hours with lunch and taking our time to walk through the market. Some stalls seemed to have fix prices while some... More

We have been to the Pattaya Floating Market numerous times over recent years but not for at least 12 months. We went today but left when they tried to charge an Entrance Fee for non-Thais. Why would you want to pay a fee for the privilege of shopping in hot little expensive tourist stalls and eating simple, cheap local fare?

Cool place to visit and try to bargain for food. I recommend the experience. This is the type of activity that can be enjoyed with out learning the local language.

Amazingly, people pay to go in to shop (& pay more...). There are multiple stalls selling food, clothes & other bric-a-brac for tourists. The stalls are not really floating - though there is dirty water all around and even a fake elephant pretending to swim! There is of course no air con, so expect to get pretty hot! If you... More

It was very hot when we went there. The entrance and boat fees aren't cheap. I was surprised that it charges an entrance fee. The shops aren't very exciting. We walked for 1 hour and left.
