Top Chinese Tourist Destinations in Pattaya


Pattaya Floating Market: 10 reasons Why It Is One Of the Top Chinese Tourist Destinations in Pattaya

We couldn’t be happier about the popularity of these attractions are having with Chinese tourists. As Jomtien Beach’s most well known luxury property developer, we are ecstatic to learn Pattaya is viewed in such a positive way by Chinese visitors and investors. Before continuing reading about our lovely floating market, make sure you learn the details about investing in Pattaya and the reasons why Jomtien is becoming Pattaya’s fastest developing area.

Thai Food

There is food represented at the Floating Market from every corner of Thailand. Delight in North Eastern fare like Som Tam Bpu Bpala (spicy papaya salad with rotten crab) and fresh vegetables with Nam Prik Tha Dang (spicy fermented fish paste) Barbecued chicken and sticky rice.

The North Eastern region of Thailand is also knows as Issan and you will find some of the spiciest food on the planet comes from here. The foods suggested here are intense, spicy, sour, sweet, salty and bitter all at the same time creating a veritable symphony of flavors. If you want to be ultimately adventurous try this super spicy fare.

On the other side of the Kingdom far to the south you will find some of the best curries around with ingredients like bamboo shoots, lotus stems, and phak tong, a japanese pumpkin.

The central region produces milder fare and is known for the variety of kanom (snacks and desserts) available. I suggest the cotton candy like knom from the Ayutthaya region, the former capital of the kingdom of Siam.

For Northern fare check out all the different types of sausages available to try. Some are spicy and some are sweet. They are made from pork, chicken or fish.

Perhaps before you decide on the best type of food for lunch you should tour the market in the traditional style.

 Thai Food
 
As far back as the late 1600s the Ayutthaya region was known world wide as the Venice of the East. This feeling is still captured when visiting there, and the floating market of Pattaya has captured the essence of this feel as well.

Hire a row boat (bpai lira) powered by a man to tour the 100,000 sqm market the traditional way. The boats are typically large enough to accommodate up to 4 people. The ride down the canals is peaceful and you can even conduct business from boat to boat just like they have been doing in Thailand for hundreds of years.
