“fake and elavated price for local stuff”
Review of Plearn Wan

Plearn Wan
Ranked #23 of 98 things to do in Hua Hin
Attraction details
Reviewed August 6, 2013

It's basically using the old retro theme to commercialize and marketable only to the Thais who have connection with older days. However, this is not different from temple fair, and other festival but fake and in a very expensive price due to the ripped off rental fee. The whole complex is artificially set up by a few entrepreneurs sponsored by big brand such as Chang beer, etc. All the drinks, food and dessert are brought back again by those local who manage to pay off rent and invest, not the one who are good cook. This is the privately owned set up market to attract middle-class Thais who like an easy going walk but not to invest to see the authenticity of the culture from the market or temple fair.

Very interesting retro themed shops and restaurants, worth a visit to have some very good noodles, local ice pops, and entertainment. All the outlets are themed in 50's and 60's type of styling, good for family visits and fun with groups.

Not a great place. Small and most shops sell what everybody else sells in town. Artistic in some places and modern in others. Shame that the first shop u see is a burger shop.
