This is basically a shopping market full of t shirt shops and the like It is free for Thais to enter but they charge 200bht for a foreigner and you get nothing but access to a rather run down and in places dangerous wooden market by a lake The entrance fee is a rip off and I recommend that you...

200 Bahts for nothing more than a row of shops and a few suspended boats around a lake or something.

Discusting to be fleeced out of 200 baht each person to enter a market. We refused to go in after our tuktuk driver took us there, I am guessing he would have got a petrol stamp for us going in but sorry to say he dipped out

As the other visitors have stated this is not a floating market, but a mock up. You walk around a lake with shops and eateries around the lake's perimeter. There is an admission fee of 200 baht each for foreigners and they thought they could soften this impact by offering a boat trip around a pond, and a free Thai... More

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
