  • This market look so fake, maybe Thai like this but is nothing for farang and tourist Trainride is a bit fub, but short.Also entrance fee for foreigner if you want to experience real style floating market i don't suggest you here. Too commercial and fake. If you can go in free ok but pay entrance, turn back.
  • In my opinion, it's not a place worth visiting. You have to buy a ticket to go in; rather expensive for foreigner. Personally i think it's a rip off. They offered a Thai classical dance show which is not really classical dance, it was a made up dance that looks like pole dancing. Extra fees are collected if you would like go on a boat ride. Not worth it.
  • Imho it's a mostly a tourist trap. A lot of t-shirts, keyrings etc. cheap merchandise. Foreigners should pay for entry. For locals it's free. It has a black knight winery shop though. This winery make one of the best fruit wine I ever tried. So I recommend to give it a shot.
  • Over price for entry fees. Be careful, Non Thai is 200THB a person even if you work and pay tax in Thailand. :( :( :( Sorry last time for me and my friends.
  • They're a lot of stalls surrounding the lake. It's a good place to buy souvenir in huahin as they offer variety of choice and cheaper price than the outside. However, there's a need for ticket at the entrance.
