I thought this would be a small tacky tourist thing. Its definately a tourist thing but its quite large. Walking around thwy have set up so that different areas are different areas of thailand. Real authentic food. Loved it

Any traveller/tourist should go to see the floating market if you are in Pattaya, it's a bit of a tourist trap with the usual tourist tat but still a nice place to spend a few hours. If you go the boat ride is a must. I would highly recommend trying the local food in the market though.

When we arrived there were drones and drones of Chinese tour groups. The place will filled to the neck with Chinese tourist, it felt like china town. Overall, the experience was good. The boat tour was nice, not as great as the Bangkok experience though. Must do once if your in pattaya.

One of tourist attractions near Pattaya, old wooden shops in the lake. They have surrounded Thai street food on small wooden boats and Thai products shops. Foreigners will have to pay the fee to visit this place, but not too expensive. Have big car park areas.

Good for group tour, Nothing authentic there, nothing special, been once no need to go back again, especially with kids. For first timers in Thailand may be ok to pay a visit...

Not sure why this place is so popular? It is full of mainly Chinese tourists who are taken here by the busload. It isn't a floating market but a collection of building on stilts above water connected by walkways. Like most of Pattaya it is aimed at tourists which is usually a good reason not to go. Worth a look... More

Many shops good for tourists, Prices very good at the shops. Also good Thai restaurants to choose from. Only issue is they charges Noin Thais quite a bit to enter, Shold be free.

A huge variety of shops and a few shows gives good entertainment. Entrance fee is 200 bht but if you want to go on a boat around the market its costs an additional 800 total 1000 bht. You can just walk around all the market stalls or go on a boat and stop at each stall. Worth a visit if... More

Well we arived here and got our stamp and waited in line for our boat trip round the market. We were in a group and took up about 3 of these boats. If you are a large person or with any dissabilities then the boats are not for you. Very low and even lower to sit. Fun for the experience... More
