A busy hand craft market open Friday, Sat, & Sunday night. This market just sell hand crafted goods from local small business, no fake stuff. Quite busy, seemed quite popular with the locals. Many small restaurant stands set up around. And some kind of stage with live performances. A nice change of pace from the other markets in town. It's... More

A very trendy market with great food and unique crafts and fashion pieces by young Thai market-stall sellers. The market seems to be geared towards the affluent Bangkok weekend tourists, which is refreshing as it is such a departure from the usual touristy night markets that sells all the same items that can be found in other markets. The market... More

A very well organised craft market with mostly handmade items. Very clean and a lovely evening environment . We didn't try the theatre show as the shrieks from behind the curtains didn't appeal - no matter - there was a cool jazz band playing and not so loud that you couldn't enjoy it. The only problem for me is no... More

This market is definitely not an authentic Thai Night market experience but it's still a really nice place to go. You purchase tickets at a booth and use those for purchasing food and drinks at the food stalls. Everything is spotless, well-lit and organized (see what I mean about not being a true night market?) You even get your food... More

I went here one night and really enjoyed it. It was less busy than the central Hua Hin night market but there were many food stalls and the food I had was excellent. This market is for people selling homemade items instead of the standard touristy items you see everywhere in Thailand. It was very fun to meander by all... More

It is sort of new market. Lots of thing to see but they all looks same from everywhere else. You couldn't find anything to buy. Many Bangkokian come for the weekend and it is very crowded. The price for the food is unbelievable. It is double price from normal and the taste is not good at all. We felt very... More

Great stuff and foods, we went there several times during our stay. As others write, it is not the ordinary plastic stuff, this seems more local and with quality :)

This is a more arty / upmarket night market. Prices are ok but range very limited. Artists try to impress you by working as u watch! Worth a visiit. Good food options but limited ( next to nil) for vegetarians!
