Hua Hin Night Market is located in the centre of town between Petchkasem Road and the railway line, close range of modern pubs and restaurants. Hua Hin Night Market is flooded with many choices of seafood stalls and restaurants. There are also many stalls selling souvenirs. I would also recommend to visit Chatsila Market in Hua Hin Night Market. It will be covered in the later part of this blog post. Do slow down your steps along Hua Hin Night Market street as there are some restaurant gems found at the back of the stalls. If you have only 1 day in Hua Hin, you must definitely visit Hua Hin Night Market. Packed with a satisfied tummy and return with a smoky grilled seafood smell back to the hotel.
Some of the activities to do at Hua Hin Night Market, but not limited to:
- Feasting Seafood
- Thai Dessert
- Thai Home Made Ice Cream
- Thai Durian
- Thai Ice Milk Tea
- Pad Thai
- Street food
- Shopping with Souvenir
- Wooden Kitchen Accessories with engraving
- Portrait Spray Painting
- Vintage Holder
- Lovely Car Freshener
Most of the seafood restaurants have their fresh catches displayed infront of their shop. Choices of fishes, giant prawn, giant squid, lobster, blue crab, crayfish, cockles, oysters, cuttlefish, stingray, mussels and more! And they are grilled freshly upon order.
Choose a fresh lobster and pass it to the staff. Price is according to its weight. Standard price for lobster is 1500 baht/kg at Hua Hin Night Market. 1 kg lobster is equivalent to a large lobster. I have ordered a medium to large lobster at 1300 baht (~S$50.80). It comes with 4 different sauces; chilli, black pepper, mayonnaise and cheese. You may also wish to order with mixed sauce like I do. Lobster meat tasted chewy and it was very easy to remove from the shell. However the sauces might have covered the natural taste of lobster sweetness. I would separate sauces from the lobster in my next visit. And sharing a secret, most of the restaurants offer a complimentary plate of fried rice with crab meat with purchase of lobster. However you have to ask for it, they don’t offer it immediately.
I have no idea why are scallops such a good deal at Hua Hin. Even at restaurants in Hua Hin Night Market, it is still price beatable. 9 pieces of shell scallops with cheese at only 150 baht (~S$5.90). Juicy and sweet scallops definitely bring joy to any scallop lover.
Fried mixed vegetables with oyster sauce at 60 baht (~S$2.40). Don’t forget to order a plate of vegetable for fibre while feasting on delicious seafood.
Yay! to my complimentary fried rice with crab meat. Simply love Thai style fried rice with fish sauce.
After a good seafood meal, don’t forget to take a stroll down Hua Hin Night Market for your dessert.
Thai home made ice cream spotted! I have noticed that most customers are not aware that there are also toppings to choose from. Well, that includes me. HAHAHA! Choose 3 from the 4 flavours; coconut, vanilla, coffee and rum raisin. Most popular flavour is vanilla but my favourite is rum raisin. The taste is similar to Udde* rum raisin ice cream in Singapore. And I bet you wouldn’t believe that it costs 30 baht(~S$1.20) for a cup of 3 scoops of ice cream and 2 toppings!!! We couldn’t even get a scoop of ice cream at S$1.20 in Singapore.
Mini Thai crispy pancake with cream and shredded coconut.
Fruits Milk Shake, Ice cream and Mango sticky rice.
Do note that there is a mini Chatsila Market in Hua Hin Night Market that sells many local souvenirs.

I thought that these were cushions. And to my surprise, they are hand made vintage holder with zip.
Car refresher with a cute packaging; bear with different costume.
Colourful sweets in a stick.
This is one of my favourite souvenir stalls selling a variety of lovely kitchen accessories. You may also wish to personalise the accessories with engraving and collect within few minutes.
Across the road is the continuation of Hua Hin Night Market.
My favourite fruit stall that sells DURIANS and many assorted fruits.
Thai durian tasted soft like ice cream and melts into the mouth instantly. It is a mixture of light bitter sweet taste. Don’t forget to consume durian out of hotel room as it is a prohibited hard rule that no durian in hotel.
Request your mango to be sliced and enjoy in the comfort of hotel room. I also love the appetising juicy pomelo that tasted like grapefruit.
How can I miss drinking authentic Thai milk tea in Thailand? Never get sick of Thai milk tea.
These seems to be edible fruits but look closer! They are hand made soap with fruit or flower fragrance.
The rocking fruit basket looks cute too!
More personalised souvenirs to go.
Pad Thai is a must order for street food.
WARNING: DO NOT buy the thick grilled cuttlefish on the right in the picture below. It had a strong fishy and bad smell. The thin grilled cuttlefish on the left is fine.
