Enjoy a one-of-a-kind shopping experience at Hua Hin Sam Phan Nam Floating Market, where more than 200 shops sprawl across a man-made lake. Designed in retro style, long boardwalks connect the shops and food vendors, but if you want to get on the water, opt for a boat tour instead. Also consider hopping on the miniature tourist train at the back of the market. Check the schedule for a list of cultural shows, and check out the fishing boats for fun photo ops.

  • We knew this was a tourist place, but still! The market is not floating, you pay 200 Bath per person which include a small boat trip on a lake. The market itself you walk around and is built up as sma...  more »
  • Went to this market and paid 200 BAHT each upon entry. You have to go past payment desk and have hand stamped. Some people are saying on their reviews that you don't pay. Oh yes you do. Me , my husban...  more »
  • We arrived around 16.30, we paid our entrance, to find that almost all the shops were closing. More... This isn't a floating market... It's an atower to water market, it is everything! If you bored take a tour... but good, no interest and it's a waste of money

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Foreigners have to pay crazy high fee to enter. Thais are free. DO NOT SUPPORT THEM. It is pure racism. If ur white you pay. Nothing to see here anyway. Never went in. Thai gf and family did and saw many pics and they all agreed it is a waste. Especially for 200 baht racist foreigner price. Stay away. Many other free markets that have better and cheaper stuff
  • 不值一去。200b 一個人,無咩特色。 That's is extremely ridiculous!!! I'm a foreigner that's why I have to paid for 200b to do nothing in this place. The receptionist told us foreigner has to pay for 200b included a free boat and performance. But when I wanna have a boat ride. The guy just told us that's finished. When I stared at him, he just said that's fine. That place is sucks. DONT EVEN GO FOR IT!!!

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.
