We visited during Covid-19 and it was also raining a bit, and the place felt very "dead" , closed down and dull. i have not been here during normal times so I do not know if this is only because of Covid-19 times. This place is far away from anything else. It was a small train which was running there.

Don't even consider going to this place. No more than a quarter of the shops were open. What food was available was certainly not to the standards that you would expect from a so called tourist attraction. The boat ride was an absolute joke. There was absolutely no safety considerations even though there was signs saying the water was five metres deep. The so called train journey at extra costs looked as though it was very high risk.

Complete waste of time.
Foreigners have to pay an entrance fee (can’t help but feel this would be considered racist in a western country).
There is also a charge for using the toilet.
Hardly any shops open so not worth it at all.

Colorful and small market on the water. Cute and cheap local shops around. Also some restaurants and cafes. You can find a mixture of toys, women’s dresses, t-shirts etc for very cheap prices. Right when you enter, you can feed goats and bunnies (within the entrance fee you pay-50baht per adult). Great way to pass a hour. Recommended for a cultural experience!

Do not go here! Walked in and it says free entrance. However someone started shouting “Farang (foreigner) must pay!). I gave the finger and turned around. Disgusting and delapidated non attraction.

This place should be repaired and re-started somehow with very very good marketing manager (kind of magician) or closed it completely. It started to be dangerous little bit. I wish this might be resurrected, but seems its a dead place for good..

This place is big and have a variety of goods to shop by. The price for shirts are more or less the same as i see in the night market. May be its from the same supplier. Remember when you come to this place, you must buy the train ticket at the entrance and the train will drop you behind of this floating market and from there you start to walk beginning from the back to its front entrance to save time unless you've plenty of time to spare than you dont need to do that but its just 20baht per pax. It is a man made lake so you wouldn't see any boat selling vegetables at the lake compare the one in bangkok. By the way you wouldn't waste your time only on this market because they are few more attraction places near here like the u-pala water fall, temple of the biggest statue of long phor tut.

How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways:

1. They charge an outrageous 200 baht for foreigners to get into this dump, while locals can come in free of charge! How horrible!

2. Most of the shop owners as well as the staff were either rude or unfriendly. One would expect them to be a little more forthcoming in exchange for the outrageous entrance fee.

3. They charge 20 baht per person to get on a mini-train ride around the market. No one ever told us that it would take us only half-way around the place, and dump us unceremoniously in the middle of the so-called "floating" market without any explanations.

4. The market is NOT floating. They placed the small shops around a man-made lagoon. These are not the ones that you see in Amphawa or Damnoen Saduak, where most of the hawkers are sitting on their small wooden boats floating in the canals, peddling their wares to other people who are either on another small boat or in the wooden stalls. Such a rip-off!

5. Items that are being sold in the shops are all a bunch of crap. Might as well go to MBK, where you'll find a better selection of items, air conditioning, and no entrance fee (although the shop owners may be equally rude and unfriendly).

Do not waste your time on this dump. Seriously. don't even think about visiting. Save yourself the aggravation.

We went to this " floating market" expecting something traditional,expecting to be on a boat with people selling their wares and food from a boat like you see on TV shows.
Forget it! Nothing like that. It's just a smelly pond with shops around it selling the usual cheap stuff that you get at the night market.
And you actually pay 200 Tbhat to see this rubbish.
Wish Trip Advisor had a negative rating system.

As stated by previous reviewers. Not much more than a man made pond with shops/stalls around it. Everything for sale can be found cheaper in other shopping outlets in Hua hin. Visited a few times before entrance fee and thought it was OK to pass a couple of hours. Now there's no elephants and your charged 200 baht to visit over priced shops.. Not worth the entrance fee and not worth a recommendation even if it was free.
