Pattaya Floating Markets
The boat trip will slowly expose the richness of the surrounding river side living. Water vendors sail with their paddle boats from dock to dock and offering their unique range of freshly cooked delicious traditional Thai dishes.
The Floating Market provides daily several cultural performances, native to the four regions of the country, like Thai classical dance, martial art demonstrations, as well as water boxing where the fighters perform on a horizontal slippery pole above the canal. Painters do show their artificial works, like umbrella and portrait painting. Pattaya Floating Market has recently provided Amphibian-boat rides, an agricultural rice field demonstration, authentic House-boats for home stay, and 10 mud-houses just beside the rice fields.
