Good place. If you are someone like me who don't eat non veg then you better take mask with you. Shop are real inexpensive. Stuff is good. Got to see culture. People are also humble and they don't force to take things from there shop.
There nothing much to see only for souvenirs. For those shopping there is nothing for you to shop. If you want to see scenery there is the nice place. The fun things is the boat will drive you from the beginning to the end. You have to pay 1500 bath to enter in. For me because want to take photos that’s why worth it.
To be honest, I was disappointed with my experience here after hearing so much online and from tourist guides in Bangkok. They have modelled this floating market after the big floating market in Bangkok but is nowhere as big or authentic. All the hawkers and store owners sell China made cheap goods at twice the rate you can buy them for outside...I guess that is consistent with markets catered towards tourists. There was one shop that was selling handmade wooden items...bought two solid wood slingshots there for 300 baht - good deal. I only ate fruit and steered away from all the hawkers selling different kinds of meats...somehow the meat didn't seem fresh to me. Other issue is getting a cab back from the market. The exit is towards the back with no traffic or cabs. There are only 1 or 2 operators there who will charge you a lot to go anywhere. Better to head back towards the entrance and exit from there. If you are in Pattaya for a short time, skip the floating market and do something else. You can always experience the floating market in Bangkok
I have bad experience in here. I had visited this market 10 years ago, and I like it when I go there first time, because you don't need to pay the ticket to enter, and there has a lot cheap and novel thing. This beautiful memory doesn't like I had have recently, beause every thing are changed. Now, you should pay for the ticket to enter, and everything in there are expensive. I remember when I went to there 2 years ago. I bring my friends to visit there, and we are interested to take the boat which have someone sell the goods on the lake. But the person who sells the ticket told us that we have to go outside and purchase the ticket. Then, we went outside to look for the price of ticket, and the ticket is so expensive, so we didn't buy. But when we want to go back the market, they didn't want to let us enter. They said you should buy the ticket for entrance again. I just think what the hell they don't want let us go inside. I don't mean that I don't want to pay, but when we first time go inside no one charges us money. So I don't understand how this gonna be happened. And, their attitude are not good, too. Finally, we decided to go back home. When we went to the parking lot, and they follow us to the parking lot to see whether we go home or are sneaky to go inside.
Good place for finding a local things, because there are many stuffs from all over Thailand parts selling here. I’m quite surprised that now all shops’ posters were written in Chinese and the sellers also can speak Chinese, so I guess now the trend is changed. Anyway, you still can see the Thai local atmosphere here. Recommend snack: Roti with Banana If you never come here, it’s a good chance to have a try.
It's an amazing market you can explore and buy traditional stuffs, food and snacks like fried banana and fried bugs. The floating market is quite big like a maze. But you can differentiate the way in or out depending on the red mark or the green arrow on the ground. Really recommend tourists to come and experience the vibes here. For there are so many people in the floating market, don't forget to mind your own properties.
A nice journey through boat to the floating market. There will be entry fees. A boat will take you to the end of the market, you will enjoy the ride and see the beauty and shop adjacent to the lake. Once you reach to end you can come to the starting point by walk. Shop, enjoy and taste food. Items are bit costly compare to Pattaya market. It's a good experience.
This was the only floating market I visited in Thailand and also the first of its kind. Its a must visit for sure. They have different kinds of entry tickets with or without boat rides, monkey show etc. The different kinds of shops selling souvenirs, clothes, Thai handlooms etc. are pretty varied in their selection. There are some pretty raunchy weird souvenirs as well that you can purchase (only in Thailand). Various food stalls sell local delicacies and some of them are a must try for sure. I loved the Banana Pancakes and Coconut Ice Cream. A great place to get the local feel and do some shopping.
It's a lovely place. Authentic Thai. We took the 1000 baht package for foreigners. They took us on a big boat first then we roamed around the market. We got a 5 min Thai massage. It was absolutely wonderful. Next we enjoyed a lovely fruit buffet. Then we took photos wearing authentic Thai clothes. After that we took a short train ride to the back end of the floating market. There we had delicious thai food at the restaurant and next took a boat ride through the floating market.in the end we also got to try out Ziplining.it was really great!
Quite possibly the best place to shop for souvenirs and memorabilia in Pattaya, for a variety of reasons: 1. It a novel twist on the usual back-street shopping area a tourism-intensive city usually has, with the numerous shops spread along the banks of a river, with a wooden dock-esque aura surrounding it. 2. As mentioned previously, a vast variety of shops selling all kinds of products, from designer clothes to the elusive yet traditional hand-carved, wooden frogs, potentially the most famous Thai souvenirs. 3. Most of the shopkeepers are locals trying to run a small business, so your shopping there, if you choose to believe in the premise, might rope in some good karma. 4. The boat rides in the river in itself is a unique experience and perspective into Thailand's cultural history.
This review is written from the point of view of a photographer and what the same should expect to see. The floating market is a really good place to take some great shots as there are many shops, stalls, kiosks to stop at, and many activities to witness, so keep your camera clicking. OK, so apart from the boat rides that you take, you can savour the many local delicacies available. You can choose to have your Tom Yum soup on one of the wooden platforms and wait for it as it is being prepared on a boat while smelling the rich fragrances coming from everywhere. You could also try some bird eggs 😃 or crocodile or scorpion if you fancy that 🤧 In addition, you have countless opportunities to take some really great pics of the vendors or even the passers-by. Then again, this is Thailand, how can you forgive yourself if you do not pamper yourself with some massage, or perhaps choose to have your feet cleaned by fish in a foot spa. Let me also add here that there is a zip line that holds up to 90kg. Even though I weighed 90 on their scale (without the camera 📷😅), they told me it wasn't safe for my weight. Confusing, right? Anyway, no big deal. I paid 900 baht for my ticket which included riding the amphibious boat. Lastly, you get to meet new people and perhaps make friends. All in all, go there, you won't regret it.
This place is an amazing experience. I went with a group of nine people. We had to pay 1500 baht. This is the only reason I did not give the market a 5 star rating. The market starts with you riding in a boat going to various markets. A lot of the markets have the same items. Bargain, bargain, and bargain. Do not buy anything for the initial price. They will come down on price for any item! Next we ate food. It was decent but not the best. The food was inexpensive so I did not expect much. Then we went back to shopping. There is a huge store that has a lot of thing. I would say wait until you buy things from here. Also when you get to the end of the market, the prices really come down for obvious reasons lol. We then traveled through the canals and on to the big river. I enjoy the scenery! It was an amazing experience. Our last stop was to visit the temples. This was very nice as well. Take lots of pictures and videos!!
