Few points to highlight the features of this place (Unfortunately only negative) 1. Double price standard (higher for foreigners or foreigners-residents) as the overwhelming majority of Thai 'historical' sites not justifying the total lack of service and quality. 2. This is not a floating market...More

Not a floating market, angry to have paid entrance fee, shops are mediocre. We made the best of it by walking around - trying out some local delicacies and shopped for “Birkenstocks”. Skip if you can.

We drove from our hotel in Hua Hin in a rented car to visit this place. Do not expect this place to be like the floating markets in Bangkok. It looked like a man-made lake with some boats. There are shops selling souvenirs, clothes, shoes,...More
