Pattaya Floating Market

Th Sukhumvit, Pattaya, 20150

The Basics

Since opening in 2008, the Pattaya Floating Market has quickly become one of Pattaya’s most popular attractions—and it offers more than just shopping and dining. Thrill seekers will find a zipline and floating water ball, while travelers interested in Thai culture can watch afternoon shows and demos of traditional Thai dancing and not-so-traditional sea boxing. Book your admission ticket in advance to skip the entry line.

Unforgettable tour of Pattaya
Ms. Aie was such a kind, friendly, and knowledgeable guide. And the driver Mr. Kip was excellent at navigating very difficult traffic. They gave us a day away from Bangkok that we could have never experienced without them. Besides learning more about the country and seeing some amazing sights like the massive Buddha carved in the mountain, we also got literally carried by elephants, and ate some delicious food at the gardens. It was such a memorable day and I would recommend this tour to anyone.

What to Eat at the Pattaya Floating Market

The food is a highlight of any visit to the floating market, and while just about everything is tasty, some dishes stand out from the rest. Keep an eye out for kanom jeen (rice vermicelli), kanom krok (coconut pancake), and thong yip (sweet egg yolk). Those with less adventurous appetites can’t go wrong with pad thai (stir-fried rice noodles) or a creamy Thai curry.
