[HUA HIN] Hua Hin Night Market @ Thailand

After asatisfying dinner at Jek Be-Ak Seafood restaurant, we walked across the road to Hua Hin Night Market and Chatsila Market (just beside Hua Hin Night Market). It is located between Petchkasem Road and Dechanuchit Road and open daily from 5pm onwards.

The iconic Hua Hin sign at the market’s entrance is the best landmark for you to identify that you are at the right place.

There are various stalls stretching for two blocks of buildings occupy both sides of the streets. The first part featured more stalls selling various souvenirs, clothes, accessories and various items. Obviously the market is tailored for tourists’ business but why mind about it? Just enjoy yourself when you are out for a holiday.

Second part of the markets featured more stalls selling snacks, grilled foods and all interesting local delicacies that may make you drooling. There are also bars and restaurant alongside the pedestrian walks.

Seafood was splendid here. The lobster of this size, about 800g – 1kg cost 1600 bath and it is served grilled. Prepare some monies if you are heading here for a seafood fest.

It is almost Halloween and the locals are good at seizing the opportunity to sell some Halloween costumes as well.

We spotted this random Great Dane at the night market which was gigantic in size! He is more than half the height of an ATM machine, and the locals seemed to know him well. He wandered without target at the market, walked into Tesco Lotus, stopped by some people for petting and sat down randomly on the street. Only later we found out his name is Rambo, and his owner has a small stall at the night market. They hope the tourists will donate some money to Rambo, perhaps for his huge appetite.

Chatsila Market

Somewhere alongside the market, you will find an entrance to Chatsila Market. Chatsila market is more organized, with the stalls are setup under a tent or in lots. Clothes, accessories, souvenirs, bags can be found here.

Bargaining is a must to buy things here. We managed to slash the price for 2 Polo T-shirts from 300 baht each to 450 baht for two, of course they are not real Polo brand. We were somehow intoxicated in the spending mood and we got a hat from 200 baht to 180 baht to have the touristy feeling.

Even though Hua Hin is a relatively smaller town compared to Bangkok, it houses about 5 night markets. Apart from Hua Hin Night Market and Chatsila Market we visited, other markets are Hua Hin Grand Night Market and Cicada Market, an art market featuring artworks from the creative artists and designers (open Friday, Saturday – 4:00pm till 11:00pm, Sunday – 4:00pm till 10:00pm). It is reported there are more local markets and it is up to the adventurous of you to explore.
