Had your fill of wandering around the shops, getting sore feet? Are you looking for a traditional Thai shopping experience? Then the Pattaya Floating Market is definitely a tour that you will want to be a part of.
The largest market of its kind in the world, the floating market covers an incredible 100,000 square metres! There are more than 80 paddle boats, ready to ferry you around the amazing array of boutiques and retailers that are ready to present their beautiful wares. The market is divided into four quadrants, each representing the cultures and traditions of the regions of Thailand – North, South, Central and Northeast. Each area will give you and your touring party a great picture of how the people from that region of Thailand live and work, as well as what each region is famous for. A truly fascinating experience it will be, floating along in a long tail boat, being amazed by the rich and beautiful architecture and the tropical, exotic plants that line the canals and islands.
If you are feeling peckish on your tour, there are water vendors that will be moving from dock to dock, offering a delicious array of fresh Thai dishes.
It’s not just the market vendors that will fascinate you on your tour of the Pattaya Floating Market – you will also be able to enjoy one of several daily cultural performances (dance, martial arts and water boxing among them). There is also theNueng Siam Woodcarving Museum, where you will see rare pieces of crafted 200 years old teak as well as a truly impressive carved image of the elephant god Ganesha.
When you book your tour through Pattaya Central, the ticket price includes your longtail boat tour, a selection of delicious fruit and a tasty dessert. And, as always, you will be transferred to and from the Floating Market in one of our modern air-conditioned vehicles, all as part of the price.
