Lovely buildings and walkways with interesting stalls- however a lot of them were empty due to covid and the fact that tourism is still on the low in Pattaya. It could be a lot better if more people went, and encouraged tourism so that more stalls could open. Prices were average,, maybe slightly higher than street prices but again, this must be supported in order for it to grow. It cost 200 baht to enter and if you wanted to do the boat ride, have a drink and snack it was a total of 800 baht. We did not do the boat ride. Had a smoothie and bought a couple of bits.

Placed was empty and dead. Not a good place to spend time at. Food was decent, but overall energy was deficient—not worth visiting.

It is a run down after pandemic. Most stalls are closed. We bought admission ticket baht200, good that we didnt opt for baht800 providing boat ride as the water is so green. Went there on sunday and it wasn't crowded at all. We only spent around 10 minutes and left.

Be aware this is not a ‘real’ floating market. It is a fake tourist attraction. Locals don’t come here to shop. You pay an entry fee.

Don’t get the boat! You can walk around every shop on the market - the boat looked like it made things harder, you can’t get into any of the shops from the boat!

That being said, once past the disappointment of being lured in, we had a perfectly pleasant time walking around, looking at all the souvenirs and clothing and grabbing some lunch.

Food was pretty average - I don’t think you’d expect anything more from what is, effectively, a collection of gift shops.

Not much to see inside, lots of shop still close, maybe since Covid pandemic. Paid 200baht/pax for the sightseeing, 800/pax if you want to ride the boat. Consider giving contribution to the state, you get to see old thai ways of selling things.

This place is one of the places badly hit by covid. we visited in April'22 & found mostly shops to be shut with no boat tours. Not sure when it will be fully open with all activities shown in pictures.

This is seriously the biggest tourist trap of Thailand. You drive on a boat along houses at the water who sell souvenirs. We have seen maybe 3 boats that sold stuff from their boats and even that was for tourists. What a scam. It should be taken out of the tours.

There is not much that this place has going for it. They have duel pricing. Thai people or people that look Thai are free. Foreigners are 200 baht each. Inside is just overpriced food and souvenirs that you could have anywhere. It is not a real floating market. Just a manmade structure made 14 years ago to cash in on tourists. There has been litte to no upkeep since then and the wooden structures are falling apart. They make deals with Thai and Chinese tour groups to stay afloat (pun intended). Spend your time and money elsewhere.
