Pattaya Floating Market - Review
Thailand like many other Asian countries is famous for its floating markets. This old tradition has found an interesting popular take in Thailand. This traditional attraction has been turned into a crowd puller by adding several other activities of tourist interest to it.
The small rivulet in Chonburi where the typical market used to take place has been surrounded with several pretty wooden decks from where tourists can experience this spectacle. Vendors selling fruit, flowers and fish travel across the water in tiny canoe boats. You can even hire one of these boats but it might be expensive for smaller groups. It is more economical to hire a water buggy and take a joy ride through the place. The place has been decorated in a rustic way and there is a lot to see and do here.
Interestingly, they have tried to include the varied traditions from the different parts of Thailand in this place. You can also shop for silk, clothes and fresh and dried Thai herbs here. A lot of handicrafts from the country are also on display. This experience is not to be missed when in Pattaya.

Pattaya Floating Market, Pattaya Reviews
Covering an area of 100,000 sqm, the Four Regions Floating Market is separated into four sections – each representing and selling items from the four major parts of Thailand (north, northeast, central and south). Expect to find many eateries, fruit stalls, souvenir shops and some art galleries. There is also a cultural show every afternoon. The 350 million baht market has over 114 shops and water vendors selling authentic Thai food, desserts and specialties from all over the kingdom. For a floating market experience, hire a man-powered boat to get around and discover the richness of the surrounding Thai architecture and riverside life. Typically, the boat is big enough for four people and can be hired for a small fee for around 30 minutes.
Just loved this place. Ticket cost 800 Thai bath for mini boat and 900 Thai bath for big bot. Worth to spend money. You can enjoy with your family at traditional Thai village and foods. Floating market offers plenty of shoppings. You can easily spent half a day. The ticket includes zip lining also. So come and enjoy.
Good place to go if you want to look for souvenirs. There are also boat ride activities which you can go around the floating market. There is option for Halal Food as well but very limited. The area is nice and convenient, parking space are plenty as well around the area. Recommended place to go if u are in Pattaya 😎
It's a good market but there's an entry fee which actually surprised me. The shops are usual but there are many food options. There are other floating market around Bangkok which are actually markets and not a tourist spots. Can visit those for shopping and the authentic feel.
I have bad experience in here. I had visited this market 10 years ago, and I like it when I go there first time, because you don't need to pay the ticket to enter, and there has a lot cheap and novel thing. This beautiful memory doesn't like I had have recently, beause every thing are changed. Now, you should pay for the ticket to enter, and everything in there are expensive. I remember when I went to there 2 years ago. I bring my friends to visit there, and we are interested to take the boat which have someone sell the goods on the lake. But the person who sells the ticket told us that we have to go outside and purchase the ticket. Then, we went outside to look for the price of ticket, and the ticket is so expensive, so we didn't buy. But when we want to go back the market, they didn't want to let us enter. They said you should buy the ticket for entrance again. I just think what the hell they don't want let us go inside. I don't mean that I don't want to pay, but when we first time go inside no one charges us money. So I don't understand how this gonna be happened. And, their attitude are not good, too. Finally, we decided to go back home. When we went to the parking lot, and they follow us to the parking lot to see whether we go home or are sneaky to go inside.
