  • It’s a market with some local craftsmanship (ok), food (nothing very spectacular I think that local restaurants outside of the market offer better and cheaper food) and all other possible useless thin...  more »
  • Best market I’ve ever seen! This is not like a typical Thai market. Love the concept they have. Could definitely travel back to Thailand, and shop here again!  more »

  • A very pleasant experience indeed. The market has grown physically and matured at the same time since I went last time 2 years ago.... It was a very busy Sunday during a long weekend public holiday but calm and serene ambience made the experience very welcoming indeed. The side shows, food, market stalls with good quality artisan products and quietness was most apparent. I felt relaxed and yet fulfilled sprending about 3 hours but wanted to stay much longer. Another time maybe!!!!
  • If you are visiting Hua Hin beach on a Friday, there's no excuse why you should miss Cicada market. It's a great place to unwind, listen to some great live music with tonnes of delicious food stalls! The Tamarind market just next to it has scores of food stalls too, from fresh juices to savouries to fresh shrimps, river prawns, oysters, mussels, you name it, they have it! Don't miss out this great area at Hua Hin.
  • Feeling like going on a walk? Consider Cicada market as one of your choice. This place is full of things from all over the world and gathers beautiful artworks here. Cicada market is an open air market that starts around the time when the sun starts to set. From clothing to antique objects you could almost find anything here. Feeling hungry? No need to walk around, wandering in the city for a restaurant or a food stall because you can get international and Thai food here. As amazing as it sounds, Cicada market have an open air theather where it holds a play every weekends. I couldn't find a reason that you would not come here. Hope to see you there!
  • Super fun night market with a wide variety of food stalls, from seafood to ribs. All kinds of drinks available from fruit punch to milk tea to coconut. The wide array of food brings you a sense of being a true adventurer with that broad selection. Beside the food there is a live band and tables to accommodate you. After or before the food you can look at the other stalls that sell you tourist and every day items. If you want it you can ask for a price. Nevertheless an experience you should try out.
  • Beautiful items for sale. Dream place for people who love art. Items were expensive though. Loved the love music inside.

Where to stay in Hua Hin

Catering to the urban crowd from Bangkok and international visitors, Hua Hin offers a good selection of rooms to suit most budgets. Resort-style hotels and smaller boutiques generally remain closer to the sea, with some establishments offering direct access to the beach. Step back from the coast to see a drop in prices for simpler rooms in areas where guesthouses and hotels remain the norm. Explore the area around Phetkasem Road for more options with very competitively priced rooms.
