  • I went with my wife and kids not teens around taking be 112 continue along the straight and after 15/20 minutes you arrive you can park either outside if there's room, or there's a large parking lot I went there when they made the initial opening but I could see that it got worse many shops closed for lack of customers high prices and everything is on sale in stores you can find at the night bazaar held every evening in the Centre of HUA HIN at more reasonable prices. We tried to eat thai food but I don't want to comment.

  • 华欣水上市场这边也聚集了不少水上摊贩、特色商店、美食小摊、餐厅等等。这个水上市场挺大的,大部份的店家都是以店面方式展售商品。用餐区也被集中在一区,大家都以席地而坐,还挺干净的。 
  • This second rate shopping centre around a man made lake charges THB200 for non- Thais! It is not really worth visiting at all and to pay for the privilege of shopping there is pathetic 
  • 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.
  • This market look so fake. Also entrance fee for foreigner 😑 if you want to experience real style floating market i don't suggest you here. Too commercial and fake.
  • Not really interesting. Entrance fees 200THB is too expensive. Not even take the boat ride and nothing special there. It is ridoculous to charge entrance fees with nothing special inside. The most disappointing place at Hua Hin.
  • Absolutely disappointing. The only thing floating in this market was one boat that you could take a ride on and it turns out was the only thing to do. They charge you to get into the market which consists of overpriced shops selling tourist junk made in China. Everyone we talked to there was disappointed and everyone in our group was as well. If you are looking for the floating market in all the pictures you see around DO NOT go to this one.
  • When it first opened and the boardwalks were new it was a nice place to visit and walk around looking at the typical Thai market goods. The train was a bargain at 20 baht and kids under 100 cm rode free. HOWEVER, the train is now 200 baht, but you also get a ticket for a boat ride, and the board walks are so rotted that one needs to spend most of the time watching their foot placement rather than looking for trinkets. The market is several km outside of town so by the time the tourist arrives and is confronted with the entrance fee they generally just pay it while cursing under their breath. The racist government policy of double pricing is definitely tarnishing the image for tourists whose own countries outlaw such practices.
