The Pattaya Floating Market stretches across an area of over 100,000 square metres and is an interesting place to visit when travelling in Pattaya. The market is divided into four separate areas, with each section offering items from a specific area of Thailand - North Thailand, Northeast Thailand, Central Thailand and South Thailand. The market houses over 100 shops and feature several stalls selling food, Thai handicrafts, souvenirs and several other items. Cultural shows are also held every afternoon free-of-charge and are worth seeing. Other attractions include the wood-carving museum and the sunflower and agricultural demonstration fields. A visit to the market will enable travellers to experience the riverside life of the locals and is recommended for travellers in the area - particularly for those who have not yet visited a floating market in Thailand.
