Pattaya Floating Market is established under the concept of presenting Cultures and traditions of 4 regions of Thailand – Northern, Southern, Central, and Northeastern. The concept covers how people from these 4 regions live, what their main activities are, and what the main products from there are, so the floating market could indicate what people in different areas live and what they earn from their ancient times.

Pattaya Floating Market is the biggest floating market in the world featuring more than 100 shops selling native food and Thai handicrafts. Thai cultural shows and martial art demonstrations such as water boxing are also performed daily. Thailand tours packages
