    Worth to visit once
    It's a man-made replica of an actual Thai floating market. The boats that were offered to us was okayish with covered roof. It would have been very nice if it was an open ride. Also the ride was hardly for half an hour rest of the time you have to just roam around the stalls. It was pretty expensive there. My brother tried crocodile meat and they said it was tasty there.Good place to explore food as well.

    Nice
    In my opinion the floating in Bangkok and Pattaya the same. I came to this place on my day trip from Bangkok. It is nice place to shopping in the boat. But, The market so expensive. We enjoyed drink coconut juice. I advice you not come in hot weather day and not stay long time there two hours good.

    How much?
    We went here with our Thai daughter in law for a bit of Asian culture. First of all I was amazed that we had to pay to get into a market and the price was different for walking or boating AND if you were Thai it was free!!! After all that the floating market was ok!

    Could be better
    Not as great as I expected. The boat ride was great. But a large portion of the area is either unused or in decay. It certainly needs a lot of fixing up. The restaurant was dirty. I didn't eat my food as it was old tasting and even had a used lime. But I couldn't return as, from the way its laid out, I didn't know who cooked it. The staff seemed stressed and anxious. Plenty of good shops. I doubt I would return however.

Very disappointed after all the hype about this market, over crowded and the first time we have had to pay to get into a market. Did not take the boat ride but it didn't look that good. A bit of a tourist trap.

Many do not speak English, but try to understand. We went to the Floating Market and ate local food, as we walked. It was very good and none got sick. We stopped in a bar for a local beer. After receiving our beer, we discovered we were being served by prostitutes. We knew and they knew we knew. We all just laughed about it and all had fun.

Beautiful simulation but overpriced. Please buy tickets on klook instead of in person. It's beautiful with lovely photo options

A bunch of houses on pillars in the water. Not quite floating but pretty cool to see. Very touristy place. Be sure to bargain when you buy! You pay an entrance fee. I heard there is an option to buy a ticket that includes the boat rides. There are lots of shops and restaurants. It gets toasty in the afternoon!

It was only by reading other reviews after our visit that we could see that there was also a walking option, which would of suited us much better because climbing in and out of a boat when we’re older than we like to admit, is rather difficult.
Most of the stalls had signs saying no photos they were just after your money. After spending £150 just to get in the place (for 2 of us) I wasn’t going to spend anymore money on total rubbish.

To rub salt into the wounds we discovered if you were Thai you could actually go in for free.
We seemed to be the only Westerners there today. Which explains why.

It was a bit dull and overpriced but the main reason not to go is that it burned down about a month ago

Just don’t. If you have been to any other market you’ve seen what is on offer here. A bit of Thai traditional dancing but no sense of a real floating market and the stalls all have wares readily available elsewhere. Save yourself the admission fee and go elsewhere to shop.
