The place was very empty!
Aug 2020
We visited during Covid-19 and it was also raining a bit, and the place felt very "dead" , closed down and dull. i have not been here during normal times so I do not know if this is only because of Covid-19 times. This place is far away from anything else. It was a small train which was running there.

Don't waste your time

This place should have closed years ago. Only 50%of stalls are open and they charge 200 baht per person entry. Please don't waste your holiday visiting.

A complete rip-off
Feb 2020 • Friends
Complete waste of time.
Foreigners have to pay an entrance fee (can’t help but feel this would be considered racist in a western country).
There is also a charge for using the toilet.
Hardly any shops open so not worth it at all.

Total rip off
Feb 2020
Don't even consider going to this place. No more than a quarter of the shops were open. What food was available was certainly not to the standards that you would expect from a so called tourist attraction. The boat ride was an absolute joke. There was absolutely no safety considerations even though there was signs saying the water was five metres deep. The so called train journey at extra costs looked as though it was very high risk.

Xenophobic dump

Do not go here! Walked in and it says free entrance. However someone started shouting “Farang (foreigner) must pay!). I gave the finger and turned around. Disgusting and delapidated non attraction.

What a shame this attraction has been allowed to fall into such disrepair.
What must at onetime have been a lovely place to visit is now in need of a great deal of attention and repair.
The boat ride is a joke short burst round the tiny lake.
Hardly free when theres 200bht entry fee
As is the train ride
Most of the shops were closed or empty.
Those that were open offered good food at a reasonable cost along side good quality clothing again at reasonable costs.
So it’s such a shame that someone doesn’t invest time and money making it a better experience for visitors
One just hope that perhaps there’s more to do a weekend or evenings
Stall holders were very polite and helpful and not pushy at all and deserve so much more to aid their endeavours

Run down

The floating market is practically gone. There are a couple of shops trading across the road selling seafood and meals. Very run down and not operational.

Jan 2020
Entrance Fee : THB200/ foreigner adult! Nothing worth to see inside! All the shops are not operating! Just a run down place with a poorly maintain lake! Dont waste money! Better to visit night market instead!

Rip off
Dec 2019 • Couples
Didn’t use TripAdvisor to research this place before I went. That was a mistake.

Got there at 1 PM expecting a vibrant floating market with opportunities for food and vendors.

I was happy that parking was easy (usually not the case at native Thai markets), but my opinion changed when I went up to the front entrance. The first thing they tried to do was charge me 200 baht because I was a foreigner (Thai girlfriend no charge). I asked why did they charge a fee if it’s a market where they want me to spend money, and the lady cashier did not understand what I was asking and pointed me to a brochure that was attached to her desk

The 200 baht entry fee entitled me to a 10 minute boat ride, and then I realized why the place was desolate. It was a rip off.

They call it a floating market, but that’s probably because there’s no category called “tourist trap“. Avoid,not worth the time
