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.

My tour guide really made this trip...
My tour guide really made this trip amazing. The cultural show was excellent and the elephant show. Would like to have actually seen the tropical garden, but maybe that was not part of it. The guide was very knowledgeable. The driver was also good. Would definitely recommend. The floating market was not as thrilling although the guide is able to teach you a lot about it. The beach was also a nice finish. Definitely worth the experience.

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.
