TRAFFICThere are also buses available for visitors to go Pattaya Floating Market. However, there are only 5 times a day (every 2 hours). For taking a bus to the floating market, this could be the cheapest choice for visitors, approximately 20 baht, but visitors might need to check the time table of the beach bus services in order to know what time the bus will arrive at their closest bus stop. In the case that visitors are impatient, they can also go to the Floating Market by metered taxi or Song Thaew, but they need to pay higher.
Pattaya Floating MarketPattaya Floating Market is located on the main Sukhumvit Road between South Pattaya Road and the junction to Chomthian (Jomtien) Beach Road. The area is quite big and it may take you about half a day to really go around it. It was really hot! Lets go through these photos and see if this place can be one of the places you should visit in Pattaya.The Four Regions Floating Market is separated into four sections – each representing and selling items from the four major parts of Thailand (north, northeast, central and south). Expect to find many eateries, fruit stalls, souvenir shops and some art galleries. There is also a cultural show every afternoon. The 350 million baht market has over 114 shops and water vendors selling authentic Thai food, desserts and specialties from all over the kingdom. For a floating market experience, hire a man-powered boat to get around and discover the richness of the surrounding Thai architecture and riverside life. Typically, the boat is big enough for four people and can be hired for a small fee for around 30 minutes.
The jetties for the shops, which are housed in typical traditional Thai-style buildings, are all connected with bridged, and hence very accessible for pedestrians. Bistros and cafés offer a wide range of typical regional Thai dishes.
BR>Traditional Thai massages offer relaxation. Your can treat yourself to a facial, head or foot massage or even a cosmetic treatment with ointments made of herbs before enjoying the folkloristic shows from all regions of Thailand. Thai dance, Thai boxing, drummers or something that resembles a coconut shells dance. There is something for everybody!
A boat ride with a small boat for four people is usually 200 baht. But we heard whispers that Farang sometimes are charged 300 baht. As they say here: T.I.T. (This Is Thailand). However, it is worth it because the boat passes through the canal along islands with gorgeous vegetation, shops, and floating traders. During the trip there is short break at the banks of a second lake. Truly eye-catching are the small floating kitchens. With a lot of skill they navigate, cook, serve drinks, and offer snacks and small meals.
At Pattaya Floating Market, visitors can travel around the market by a boat in order to see view of the market on the boat. Also, visitor can taste Thai traditional food and dessert, can see live shows of Thai cultures and traditions of the main regions of Thailand, and can find different kinds of items in the market.
Pattaya Floating Market not only presents cultures and traditions from different regions of Thailand but also presents niche products from there, such as wooden sculpture, silverware, textile, paper handcrafts, sailing-boat model, wooden-handmade bags, Thai silk, and so on. Not surprisingly, the visitors usually buy souvenirs or gifts for their friends and their family from this floating Market.
Pattaya Night Life
Pattaya has derived part of its reputation as a tourist destination due to the sex industry and the resulting nightlife, and in many ways the city has become what it is now because of this. Prostitution in Thailand is technically illegal but reality shows that it is tolerated as is the case for Pattaya with its vast numbers of host bars, gogo bars, massage parlours, saunas, and hourly hotels, serving foreign tourists as well as locals. This is prevalent in the Walking Street as well as other areas around the city. Efforts have of late been made to clean up the city's image.
Pattaya also has Asia's largest gay scene based around Boyztown and Sunee Plaza. The city is also famous for its flamboyant kathoey cabaret shows where transsexual and transgender entertainers perform to packed houses.
