Cicada-market is purely for the tourists. Over priced art and other products. Loud music. Some people like it, I don't. The food court is small, some sqews and noodles, but not proper food vendors. I have visited this place two times: the first and the last... You can find this place 2,5 miles south from the city centre.

Great night market and slightly upper class than the 'usual' Thai markets. Lots of food stalls and the quality and variety were excellent. Expect to pay more than the usual lower quality Thai markets but that is expected when you see the place

If you are tired of the same tourist tatt that you get in every other market in Thailand, then venture to Cicada. I bought a great piece of art for my living room directly from a local artist. Live music, cheap drinks and food, good stalls make this a winner.

Cicada Market is about a 10mins car-ride from Hua Hin night market. 300 Baht for a return trip taxi. The market operates only Fri-Sun from 4pm till about 10pm. More for the art lovers, many stalls selling wares that are designed by the stall owners themselves. Prices of items here tend to be slightly pricier than those you find in... More

Locals told us to check it out and learned parking lot charged 50 THB per evening and over price food stalls. It was raining and there was an outdoor dance theater which offered no cover charge to the shows. Also we bought local t-shirts, gifts, tattoos, drank some beers and watched local band playing Thai pop music.
