Just a small market selling so-called arts stuff where one can get from hua hin night market. Nice food though not the cheapest. Basically very small market.

It's a weekend market open around evening 6pm. A very good place to view some artistic stuff and there is also some performance like live band, breakdance and etc. As Hua Hin transport is not as convenience like city. You may need to flag a tuk tuk or taxi or maybe shuttle van provide by hotel to this beautiful market.... More

Last night in Hua Hin and a Friday so took opportunity to visit Cicada Market, and were not disappointed. Great atmosphere, live music, local handcrafts and some great food. Need to buy tokens for food, but these are refundable. Fun night!

Cicada market is a short ride from the centre of Hua Hin. It is less touristy and a complete contrast to most night markets, selling crafts and handmade goods. We didn,t find a lot to buy but it was fun to walk round the stalls. However the food stalls were excellent and very good quality and value. The entertainment was... More

This market opens from Fri to Sun. It is well worth a visit, excellent for a family evening thanks to the laid-back environment and friendly vibe. The craft shops are nice and with original products, not a fake market full of copies or cheap made-in-China merchandise. However, for us the best part was the food. Delicious Thai food in a... More
