Sightseeing of Pattaya: Floating Market
Pattaya floating market – a unique spectacle and a great place to get acquainted with local dishes and purchases of ingredients for their cooking at home. This is not only the market, but also a whole residential village on piles.
The tradition of floating markets in Asia has not one century, but the Pattaya market opened only in 2008: now there is about hundreds of benches with the most diverse goods. This floating market claims the title of the largest in the world.
The market area of the market is divided into four zones on the regions of the country, the range of products there is presented. On both shores of the river are pile huts with trays and shops, a pavement hooks between them and boats. Here you can buy seafood, fruits, medicines, clothing and souvenirs, get a massage session, look at Thai boxing or dancing, ride on a boat or on a tarzanka over the lake. In the restaurants on the water prepare inexpensive and simple local dishes, and you can buy directly with boat floating cuisine.
It should be borne in mind that prices for all this on the floating market is not lower than in the city, and sometimes the opposite – for the flavor you have to pay.
Pricing market prices are not lower than in other city shops
