  • Boring, run down. Don't waste your time to come here. I don't mind paying because I am a farang, I mind paying when there is nothing to see or do.
  • Actualmy the place could be very nice and fun, there is one problem, if you r foreigner in pay a fee of 200bhats which is making less and less customers every day, most of the shops r closing or closed or moved somewhere else. Looks like the company which owns this should learn to threat people equally
  • Clothes and food on sale can be found elsewhere. Stalls are arranged around a pond, so not really a floating market. Foreigners are charged 200 Baht to get in which allows them to spend more inside. I understand an entrance fee for national parks but not commercial enterprises.
  • Wondering how it will survive. If one doesn't use Google Maps, it is difficult to locate. No signage on major roads to give directions to visitors. Hardly any people on weekdays.
  • I think it's pretty boring. The boat ride was so so soooooooooooo boring, jesusssssssssss. But if you do go there try eating, I say the food are rather tasty.
