Just another market, but with an entry fee

Be aware of the THB 200 entry fee for tourists. You are better off by visiting one of the markets in Hua Hin as you will find nothing special at this place that the others do not... read 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...

Be aware of the THB 200 entry fee for tourists. You are better off by visiting one of the markets in Hua Hin as you will find nothing special at this place that the others do not have. -except maybe for a small lake in the middle of the market with some fish to feed. Not worth the entry fee,... More

As per the below reviews, it is not a floating market, but a bunch of little permanent shops built along the edge of a man made dam. Not worth going there. Seeing the fish in the dam feeding was the highlight and the soup we ate was also tasty.

Like the other reviews have said, this is not a "floating market" like the name suggests. IF you have some spare time and want to visit a cute little place, go for it. However, I would not go out of your way to come here. We stopped by on our way back to the Bangkok airport from Hua Hin, so... More

This second rate shopping centre around a man made lake charges THB200 for non- Thais! It is not really worth visiting at all and to pay for the privilege of shopping there is pathetic

What a rip off. This is not even a floating market. It is just a bunch of little shops (selling the same t-shirts you can get anywhere in town) crowded around a nasty pond. If you are not Thai they charge you the exorbitant entrance fee of 200baht ($6) just to get in, which includes a ridiculous "train" ride along... More

We got excited when the driver suggested floating market to us. Upon getting in after paying for an entrance fee of 200b each which was inclusive of a boat ride, we were taken aback by what we saw. It was an enclosed area build on stilt with shops. As we went near 5+pm, shops were either closed or going to... More

I've been many floating market but this place can not call "floating market" because they try to built like the old market located next to the canal. The shops are new and the goods are simple not antique, so you can find in many local market. You can find the same items in 3-4 shops. At the main entrance they... More
