About Pattaya Floating Market

Known as the “Four Regions Floating Market”, the sub-sections of this 100,000 square meters development represent the four major areas of Thailand – the north, northeast, central and south. This iconic floating market comes in the form of shops and stalls selling souvenirs, fruits, food, art, handicrafts, postcards, and clothing, as well as regular cultural shows and demonstrations. It is amazing to see some of the 114 vendors selling their wares from traditional boats and canoes. The rest is built into a sturdy stilted village, with covered walkways and stout bridges connecting them. This unique market claims the dual title of being the first and only floating market in Pattaya. This bustling hive of commerce is divided into different sections selling merchandise from various regions of Thailand. It's also a great place to indulge in some exotic cuisine; you can try everything from scorpions to crickets and crocodile meat. Renting a boat is surely a great way to explore the markets. Unlike more authentic floating markets, you have to pay for admission here.
