    The fake floating market where we should not visit there. We were upset and disappointed with the entrance payments for tourists not worth for spending your single minute.  more »

    Visited here as it was raining and thought we would give it a go. Absolute rubbish and very sad place. Complete rip off - shopping but paying for the privilege. Shops and walk ways need some restorati...  more »

    The fact alone that tourists have to pay 200 bath and Thai is not unacceptable to me. Were also around after 20 min, the stores out there sell all tourist Bana and for the kindness of those who work there you should also not go. My advice there are dozens of local markets, go there, go there 100 x more fun.

    Very sad place... Basically no one around. Probably dieing a slow self inflicted death due to the racist entrance policy... Free for thais... 200 baht otherwise.... Didn't go in. Wish I could give it zero stars!

    Waste of time and money. As all other comments say, charge 200baht for tourists. No boats on water. Basically shops surrounding a lake, pretty much all selling tshirts and food. Boat trip around lake was pointless as you couldn't see anything different to walking around. All looks very run down. Really not worth visiting. Wish I had read trip advisor first.

    All seems old, and nothing new to see. If you decide to take a boat trip, you must now wear lifejacket. A big plus for that! 😊

    Not worth your time. Souvenir shops and eatery's. All build for tourists. I regret I've been there and paid the entrance fee (100 baht). Thai traditional dance show was the only thing worth seeing.

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.
