We were hype on seeing the floating market but unfortunately it was not available as the river water risen where it's inconveniently dangerous for them to sell on their boats. It was pretty much like the Asean Night Bazaar that night with the food and clothes that's sold there. One thing for sure you've got to have is the coconut... More

not much choices compared to floating market bangkok. however there are traditional & cabaret performance by the river. also be careful with the balloon popping like what we always see in funfair or carnival, my friends n hubby tried 3x but none hit the balloons & they are only 2 metres away from the balloons...magic???

U can find a great thai food here. A lot of variety and also servenior. If u plan to buy survenior try to bargain first but dont put unacceptable price. If ure comeing from hatyai city center, in a peak season normally the tuktuk will charge u 400bath for 4 pax and 2ways. Do enjoy yourself!

It was raining cats and dogs when I got there but the aroma of food was too good to resists. The top half of the place was mainly non-halal food stalls while the bottom section; nearer to the river served halal food. Most food are between 20BHT -30BHT. Portions are good and adequate. I love the adventure of tasting simple... More

Cool outdoor market, great food, live music, a lot of good food and great prices. Every friday, saturday and sunday from 1 pm to 8 pm. You can take a "tuk tuk" from anywhere. There is a Buddha templo in front. This market is running by a lot of islamic girls.

+ lots of local food varieties + must try the sticky mango rice and the kuey teow soup + 20 mins drive from Central Hatyai (Lee Garden). Tuk Tuk costs approx 400baht (return), you can inform driver to wait for 1-2 hours while you shop! - must bargain for items

A must see! The best of floating markets in Thailand. Crazy good food and the cheapest prices of all. From dim sum to pancakes, natural juices to seafood. A very Unique scene with live music and great shopping too. Not too mention a python exhibit

An intresting venue to visit. Furthermore is just a few kilometer away from city center. There abundance of food to choose. Most of the food here is Halal. Beside foods, there are also cultural show as well some musical performance. Definately it worth of visit to Floating Market. Tips; visit after 5.30pm its more crowd and not so hot.
