Whether you are shopping for painting, decoration item or art & craft stuffs, Cicada has everything. This night maker is always in full bloom during weekends. Wear something thin and light though as it can get stuffy and hot with crowd. It's not sheltered market so you will get wet if it's rain. There are also food stalls selling local... More

Many art stalls. The market is in the south of Hua Hin, you can drive from the center to the market with the 10/15-Baht-Shuttle-Taxi or with a Tuk-Tuk.

This is a very planned out market with a very good selection of quality good. You can also go to the theatre and eat from a very good selection of vendors. It is very clean and on hard standing so easy to walk around. It is on a Friday Saturday and Sunday and it starts around 17.00. Well worth a... More

As this was highly rated as the top evening activity in Hua Hin, I have to admit I was sadly disappointed. Maybe I'm to blame. Maybe my expectations were too high after the intensity of the chatuchak market. But the Cicada market was bland at best. Don't get me wrong, there were some unique vendors, but not the diversity or... More

Although the market isn't the cheapest, it's definitely worth a visit. The amazing amount of food on offer is worth the effort alone. Some live music with plenty of seating to enjoy the bands alongside the street entertainers make the market a must visit whilst in Hua Hin.

It's like an art street . Most of the stall were selling their own creation . Most importantly, you will found lots of food stall as well . Although a little bit expensive than other places , i feel it worth the price . The place was clean and well organized. Only available during weekend, so plan your trip wisely... More

There was live music and a Thai comedian, was odd and funny... Besides that nice food and staff... And just a fun hangout... If you eat in "the court" make sure she gives you the correct amount of coupon money...

Cracking night market that's open at weekends. A bit more upmarket than the usual ones in Hua Hin. Plenty of handcrafted stalls and a huge choice of food and desserts.
