The Cicada night market is a weekend event that hosts lots of great food options and trendy wares that are well worth the visit. There is also live music and other entertainment such as a cute little dog performance (in Thai). It is very busy and hard to find a table after you purchase your food so good to plan your food, drink and seating before ordering. You will need to purchase coupons at one of the several booths to pay for items individually. You can cash in what you don't use as they are only good on the date stamped. A nice change from the regular night markets, a bit more expensive but worthy of a visit.

Very different to the other 'night' market and really a must see (weekend only) while in Hua Hin.

Open air stage performance, live bands, street actors, B boy dancers, plenty of stalls with more than the 'usual' Thai souvenir, food stalls and a Singha made for a perfect evening with the family.

Just returned to the UK after a month long visit to Hua Hin.We went to Cicada each Saturday we were there.The market itself contains lots of good quality craft stalls which my wife enjoyed.I preferred the food stalls.Some of the dishes I had were the best I tasted in Hua Hin all for ridiculously low prices.I would recommend this market to any visitor.

This night market is a fantastic one to visit just for the food alone. There were lots of lovely things to eat and they're mostly made fresh for you to eat while you wait. They use a coupon system for paying for the food and this worked quite well if you had a rough idea of how much you would need at the beginning. Although it was quite busy the waits for meals weren't too long. We were also treated to lots of singing and various entertainment because it was the King's birthday on the weekend we were there. There are lots of lovely things to buy here and although it is a bit more expensive than the mass-produced things you get at most other markets it is worth it because of the quality and well-crafted nature of most of the goods available.

As has been said in previous reviews, this is a wonderful place to get your hands on some really lovely original hand made goods, and the prices are extremely reasonable. We will go again to buy some things for the family. It's at the bottom of the town near Khao Takiab area
