Pattaya Floating market
Pattaya Floating Market is a major tourist attraction, conserving Thai Culture, and covers an area of 62 Rai, almost 100.000 sqm . 10 years ago this was farm land, and home to many aquatic animals, the land was fertile with verdant florae which grew amongst the fields. It was, and still is the largest swamp within the Eastern Seaboard of Thailand.
In 2005 Lake View Restaurant opened providing both Thai and international delicacies; the restaurant was built in front of the Swamp. The CEO later had the wisdom to foresee the potential of the area, whilst giving thought to water conservation, much the same way as to the Royal thinking of His Majesty the King. The CEO has given much thought to the life project to demonstrate the beautiful and simplicity of the Thai way of life, and to present this fascinating culture of the East to the rest of the World.
Pattaya floating market originated following the CEO?s intention to build a place which reflected the Old way of Thai Life, a place which demonstrates the Thai Culture from the 4 regions of Thailand. Here the tourist can enjoy the beautiful scenery, traditional Thai style Teak wood buildings, water vendors, and many items on sale from the 4 regions ? each item unique and giving a glimpse into the old Thai way of life. Never before in one place can you experience the 4 regions of Thailand.
Pattaya can be reached in a 2.00-hour drive along Bangna-Trat Highway via Bang Pakong, Chon Buri and Si Racha. However, visitors can avoid Chon Buri by opting for Highway 36, the new route of Chon Buri – Pattaya – Rayong or motorway from Rama 9 Road.
