We visited before the official time for activities, so it was very quiet. This actually made our visit very nice as we were looking to browse around the shops rather than watch a concert or engage in activities. This is not a flea market, it has nice and original shops where local artists sell their products. Some of them were... More

I visited Baan Sillapin many years ago and met Khun Tawee Kesa-ngam, the founder of this great village. Tawee has since become a friend and I have watched the village change over time and grow to have many artists who share different mediums. There is a wide range of artwork, clothing, jewellery, and crafts at the village. There is something... More

It was such a lovely treat to visit this artists' village where the art and crafts were originals and of high quality. Not the mass-produced items that you normally find in Thailand. The location is charming too as it is situated amongst nice green trees and plants. I also liked the idea of doing some craft-making sessions with some of... More

Also known as Hua Hin Artists Village, I saw the site on my way to Black Mountain GC one day and decided to come back with my wife. We have been going to HH for many years but had never heard of it. Actually, it was quite a treat to have quite a few local artists showing (and working) in... More

Perfect place to relax enjoying the arts, seeing ancient collections and even doing a paint of your own. Staff here are very nice and friendly. You definitely can enjoy the arts with no one following you. Also if you come with kids, they will love this place. Just leave them with teacher Nang, she has many choices of small arts... More

I stumbled across this village on the way out of Hua Hin. It is made up of quirky rooms and studios where different artists show their art in different settings. A few artists have turned their area into studios where they producing their art. It was wonderful wondering in and out of the different sections. Also cooling from the heat... More

Doesn't look like much until you get in, the village is a small sprawl (doesn't make much sense I know - you'll get what I mean if you go) with a whole range of different artists studios where you can view an array of different styles and mediums. A real pleasure to wander around and as I'm no art critic... More

After all the souvenir junk one sees around Hua Hin, it was really refreshing to go to the Artist Village and see true art. The village is a lovely spot, shaded by trees, and a labyrinth of one artist shop after another. Lots of paintings, some sculpture, clothing and jewelry, masks, and some antiques for sale sprinkled here and there.... More

A wonderful artist's village, with lots of folk who are truly modern artists, along with some traditional Thai arts and crafts. A great place to spend an afternoon - good coffee and snacks, lots to see, a place to work with other artists and a shop with supplies. Clean, beautifully laid out - the place itself is a work of...
