  • Be aware of the THB 200 entry fee for tourists. You are better off by visiting one of the markets in Hua Hin as you will find nothing special at this place that the others do not have. -except maybe f...  more »
  • As per the below reviews, it is not a floating market, but a bunch of little permanent shops built along the edge of a man made dam. Not worth going there. Seeing the fish in the dam feeding was the h...  more »
  • Not just go all the way but to do something decent! Beach sandals, tympanum, and T shirts cheap is good. Also facilities are kept clean.

  • 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.
