Hua Hin - Cicada Night Market / Chatsila Night Market

Next, we proceeded to the cicada market by tuk tuk. The tuk tuk in Hua Hin charges almost the same price as the private car but it is so difficult to find one on the road unless you have a direct contact. Regardless, it was a very fun experience riding the vehicle, though I must say that they are really dangerous as the door was open and the driver speeds up.

Cicada Market

Cicada market is only open on the weekends, so make sure you grab the chance to go if you are there during the weekends. Luckily for us, our schedule fits right on sunday when we arrived.
The market is unlike any night market we've been to.
The market surrounds an atmosphere connection of artistique, creators, designers, culture and arts and they are represented by the activities they do over there and the items they sell.
The market is divided into 4 zones: Art A La Mode, Cicada Art Factory, Amphitheatre and Cicada Cuisine.
The first two is where the vendors are selling items of clothing, bags, accessories, crafts, cards and many more along the path of the sideways. Many of these items are unique on their own because they are mostly handcrafted so they boast individual unique identity that you cannot find in other stalls.
The Cicada Cuisine is the food zone area where you can get your dining. Some of the options include local thai cuisine, and a few Chinese and western food. Overall, the dining was pretty decent in a much relaxed open environment. There are also plenty of space around if you come earlier so there's really no need to worry not being able to find tables for dining.

Chatsila Market

Chatsila is a night market which runs adjacent to the Hua Hin night market.
They are a typical night market which sells clothes and accessories that are cheap and appeals to tourists. The market is much cleaner and more organized than the Hua Hin market though they lack scale of individuality as some of the things sold are repetitive.
Across the market, there are also a few seafood dining options and we managed to eat our dinner there. One of our dining options was the KO Seafood restaurant which I think was very fantastic. We ordered a lot, including an 800 gram of Lobster and Tiger Prawns which can cost near to THB 1000 baht for each. The tom yum and la la were also very delicious so I would definitely go back to the stall again if I decide to return one day.
