  • Cicada market is worth visiting mainly for its food and atmosphere. It's not the place for shopping although you can get some souvenirs at the "foreigner" prices. at the back of the cicada market there is a road and "continuation" of the souvenirs at much more decent price although again, not a lot to choose from. The food on the other hand was plentiful and very tasty. Everything looked and felt fresh and clean. The prices are not "market prices", but quality is worth paying. There are street performers, live music and a happy buzz surrounding the area. Enjoyed every minute of it. The market is opened on Fri sat sun from 4 to 9.
  • Very nice night market. Lots of nice stuff you can buy there. Didn't try the food but it looks so clean. Can spend hours to walk around. Also has traditional night market next Cicada. Also another nice night market 10 minutes away. Live bank and a lots of food carts.
  • Great for a nice night out of food and culture. They have yummy insects and wonderful purses. You could spend hours here. Its good for a night outing.
  • Fresh food at very reasonable prices. Great ambience with live music at various locations within the market. Local arts and craft for sale along with the obligatory market items. Excellent.
  • worth to pay a visit. Variety of foods and niche merchandise are offering. Live full band and acoustic music available on separate stage area. Plenty of seats. Easy to get there even by local bus route.

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.
