A bit of a tourist trap really, certainly not an authentic floating market but its OK for a visit. Mainly gifts and touristy stuff for sale but there are quite a lot of street food style options too.

Relaxing atmosphere, very Asian looking if you know what I mean. Lots of small attractions to see. All in all a nice place to spend the most part of a day.

In pattaya floating market, it is located not too far from gems gallery. Once we get there, we can see and buy many local foods, and souvenirs. We can ride on the traditional boat that surround the floating market

Beautiful place for family outing and tourists, variety of products available at cheap prices, souvenirs for tourists, street food to high end eatery available. . most shops sell china items! If you are a tourist, this place is recommended by rented bike( around 100 bht) as taxi will cost you more(around 300 bht).

I had read negative feedback, and was relieved to see these were unfounded. The Market is a tourist attraction and i found it enjoyable to wander through the maze of wodden walkways through the water market. Its not floating but raised on stilts above a lake. There a several floating sellers and you can travel around in a gondola type... More

It is a nice place to visit. Can be visited during a hot day as most of the market is covered. Should be reached during morning as it is far from town and you need atleast 3 to 4 hours to cover the whole market. It also closes at about 6PM and it becomes difficult to get reasonable fare Cab...

Alot of the same shops over and over again. Not worth the hype unless you're into looking at the same thing thailand offers over and over again.

A good place to see but got the feeling that it is not a real floating market in the one in Bangkok but it's worth looking at if you have not seen a floating market before

A market which is a little different to the traditional markets in most countries. Lots of Thai products and souvenirs on sale, nothing great apart from the traditional boats which take you around the market. Musicians playing on a raft. Merchants selling local foods on boats. Take a picture and go on the rope sling are some attractions. No worries... More
