  • A delightful experience at Hua Hin. To be honest I’m kind of fed up with conventional night markets in south east Asia, particularly we are traveling in a huge group with kids. So we went to Cicada Market instead. We were so pleased with the decision as it’s not only well organized but done in a very stylish way too. Probably the cleanest night market I have seen really. More unique designer stuff than common street stuff you would find here and selection of food is also crazy. However you need to buy coupons for food is a bit inconvenient though. Food wise is tasty but pricy for market standard though. However it’s totally worth a visit and a big attraction at Hua Hin for sure.
  • Expensive food that caters to tourists. Prices here are at least 30% more than Tamarind market which is beside it. There is also an informal market at the exit near the souvenirs area. Prices there are even cheaper since it is catered to the locals. Here's the price comparison for a grilled fish. Cicada: 240 -320 baht. Tamarind: 200 baht. Informal market: 180 baht.
  • I had a good visit to the Cicada Market and the Cicada Amphitheater. It was "Chakri Day", a national holiday, so the place might have been a bit more crowded than usual. Still, the free performance at the Cicada Amphitheater was well done - just make sure you book your tickets in advance and pick them up on time or you might lose your seats. While waiting for the show to start, I ate dinner in the Cicada Market food court area. The Thai dishes I ordered were average in taste but slightly above average in price. A pitcher of Singha Beer will set you back 200 Baht. The April heat has set in, so the chilled beer was refreshing. I will definitely visit the Cicada Market and the Cicada Amphitheater again.
  • All-in-one place to hang out with your friends and family. There's a lot of food stalls for many styles of food, both Thai and fusion. Also, there are musical shows, comedy shows, art gallery, and uncommon Thai fusion street music band. Bringing a good camera is a must or you will miss many beautiful photos and selfies here.
  • This market will blow you away. My favorite thing to do in Hua Hin. The food market is so clean and inviting with any kind of Thai food you would want. Prices are always cheap but slightly more than other markets I have been to. Lots of other shopping. Our kids did a craft as well. Sometimes live music or a live show.
