Hua Hin Night Market
Situated in the Hua Hin centre between the Petchkasem Road and the railway line , the market basically encompasses one street that comes to life from 6pm onwards , when traders line the street with their stalls selling various apparel , crafts , art , CDs , DVDS and cheap tasty food , generally what you might expect from a Thai market .
Hua Hin does have a superb selection of seafood restaurants that line the road that hosts the Night Market , drawing a lot of attention from visitors eager to feast on the quality dishes on offer .
The market experience is entertainment in itself . Here is where you can get a real grasp of local culture and opportunity by practicing your Thai during the bartering process . Even if nothing on offer suits your fancy , just walking around and soaking up the atmosphere is a great source of entertainment with the various street vendors and live entertainers around .
Most of the restaurants on the street double as bars where you can enjoy a beer or cocktail while watching the crowds move up the street . At the top end of the street moving away from the sea , you will come to Prapokklao Road , which is lively street consisting of shops , bars and restaurants .
The seafood restaurants in this part of town are incredibly popular due to their atmosphere , quality of food and Thai-style low prices . With minimal space between each establishment , you can pretty much expect the same thing from each place and prices that closely compare to their neighbours’. Each restaurant usually has a small vending station outside where food is both prepared and sold on a street food basis . The usual seafood ice trays laden with freshly caught fish, crab and lobsters might help sway your choice .
We stopped at a stall selling square pancake which was similar to our Malaysia mamak roti canai . Difference is, theirs come in wide varieties of fillings , They have chocolate , banana with chocolate , Nutella with banana .
Primarily , Hua Hin Night Market is a place to indulge in food and drink but that is not to say that the shopping should go unmissed . As any savvy market goer will testify , finding the good stuff is more often than not about getting into anything .
