On the way from Bangsaray to Pattaya, just before you get to the Jomtien area, you encounter the Pattaya Floating Market. It is a small, cute village built on an artificial lake, and it duplicates the real floating market you can find in Damnoen Saduak near Bangkok. But that's were the similarities end. The slogan "The largest original Thai floating market" should be taken with a grain of salt. However, this project, which cost 350 million to build, is really worth a visit. There is no entry fee (not even for foreigners), and the prices are reasonable at the more than 100 neat little shops selling handicrafts, souvenirs, brass work, textile and numerous other small trinkets from the four regions of Thailand.
