Bluport Hua Hin

Those in search of some retail therapy and family fun will love this modern mall. Situated across from Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin, it not only offers fashion as well as lifestyle and IT products but plenty more as well; gourmet markets, a cinema complex and the country’s first interactive underwater world theme park!

Hua Hin Night Market

An ideal place to get a feel of Thai outdoor markets, the Hua Hin Night Market is a lively spot where you can purchase clothing, handicrafts, souvenirs, jewellery and more. In Hua Hin, things to do at night include sampling local cuisine for which this market is one of the best places, especially seafood!

Plern Wan Shopping Village

Heading inside the Plearnwan Shopping Village is like stepping back in time to Hua Hin of the1950s! This open-air mall with its courtyard-style building has a vintage feel to it and offers clothing, fashion accessories, unique mementoes, toys and a delectable array of dishes and sweet treats too.

Hua Hin Floating Market

Built around an artificial lake, the Hua Hin Floating Market features a retro vibe and has a walkway that will take you to shops selling handicrafts and boat vendors offering local dishes. Cultural shows are held here daily, while you can take a boat tour of this floating market as well.
