The chain I’m told is owned by a French group, I only wish they would open a branch in Pattaya.

Pattaya Fish Market Naklua Road

Pattaya Fish Market Naklua Road

Pattaya Fish Market Naklua Road Pattaya Fish Market Naklua Road is located in Naklua about 5 kms from central Pattaya. Just jump on a Baht bus & you are there in 10 minutes for 10 Baht or 70 cents.

Very fresh

Pattaya Fish Market Many products are still alive & kicking, they will kill & clean the fish for you then pack them in ice so you can take them home to cook.

Lamchabang port in the distance

Pattaya Fish Market Naklua Road Laem Chabang is a large commercial port with not much else in the area. The large cruise ships stop here and they can buy souvenirs and get a massage at the cruise terminal, there is also a shopping centre. Smaller ships may head up the Chao Phraya River and dock at Khlong Toei Port relatively close to Bangkok’s city centre.
