Arrived at 10am - no boats on lake. The walkways are badly maintained. The miniature railway track is also badly maintained and although they charge 20 baht for a ride, you cannot take the train back to the start. It's in the middle of nowhere, don't waste your money renting a taxi/minibus to get there - stick to the markets... More

As the other visitors have stated this is not a floating market, but as we had been before, we knew that. What was different this time, is they charged us 200 baht each to get in, for the 200baht we would receive a boat trip around a pond, and a free Thai dance show, waste of time. When we got... More

What a waste of time and money. This isn't a floating market. It's a market around a man made lake. And the cost is insane. We were charged for a package of a boat ride and show. We thought being a floating market the boat ride was essential. But You can walk around the market shops and don't need the... More

The place is ok, not something spcial. Average market, not so floating, just by small lake with option to sail on boat for tourists. In general there is a lot of thai food and some clothing shopes

I usually do my research first but went to this place on the recommendation of our driver. It cost us 600 THB to get in and this included a boat ride. There was one boat for hundreds of tourists that did a circuit around a grotty lake. The food was pretty good and cheap, 50THB a dish, hardly worth it... More

We thought the market has boats selling food ang staff. We have to pay 200 thb to get in. There was no boats and all. 5min boat trip was boring and i think that was only boat in the market. Same shops like in town area.

I was heading to the hills vineyard & my driver recommended this place, which is along the same route leading to the vineyard. Y it's jot worth going- it's run down, water is dirty, not much of a 'real' floating market feel, foreigner is charged 200baht which is very unreasonable given the condition of the place but they give a...
