Best Places to Shop in Hua Hin
Like all resort towns Thailand, Hua Hin is rich with shopping experiences, from a night market that functions after dark to a western-style shopping mall—even an outlet store.
Of course, local shops offering everything from antiques to world-class jewelry are also in abundance.
Here are 7 places that are well worth a visit.
Cicada Market is an art-themed experience, offering paintings, crafts, home accessories, sculpture and more. Music and dance performances are held most Friday and Saturday evenings, starting at 5 p.m.
This 1950s-style courtyard building offers a variety of period-style shops that sell one-of-a-kind souvenirs and clothing accessories. There’s also a 20-room inn, a cinema and a food court.
Saphira sells real, hand-crafted jewelry—the kind that comes with papers. In operation since 1958, buyers can actually see their pieces being made.
Hua Hin Antique Shop
Housed in a two-story shop house at the corner of Phetkasem and Naresdamri Roads, the Hua Hin Antique Shop offers exactly that: unusual antiques. Prowl the store to find everything from gramophones to unicycles.
Hua Hin Night Market
Good for street food and cheap drinks, the Hua Hin Night Market also offers a bevy of trinkets, souvenirs and other goodies (including some counterfeit goods). For the best experience, go after 7 p.m. For more standard fare, the nearby Day Market (Chat Chai) sells groceries, seafood and other staples to locals.
Hua Hin Market Village
This is Hua Hin’s first major western-style shopping mall and entertainment complex. Its three air-conditioned floors house brand-name stores, a cinema and a food court.
Khomapastr is one of Thailand’s largest native brands, in operation since 1949. It offers cotton clothing with hand-printed classical Thai patterns. The Hue Hin store was the first to open, more than 60 years ago.
Looking for more brand names? You can also try the Premium Outlet, where brands like Lacoste and Jaspal are offered at a deep discount, sometimes as much as 50 percent off.
