Unlike other floating markets in Thailand, Pattaya Floating Market does not actually float. The 27-acre site (opened in 2008) is a very large lake within which ‘islands’ of shops & cafés have been built on stilts – all connected by wooden walkways.
The style of each of the island buildings reflects, to a degree, the architecture of Thailand’s four regions.
A bit touristy but still a well thought-out and an interesting place to visit, with opportunities to buy authentic art & craft products, sample some pretty good regional Thai food and watch Thai dance & martial arts displays.
