Hua Hin Shopping Suggestions
The city does offer lots of shopping options and comes with a wide variety of choices. The world-class shopping malls are fantastic, but for something a little different, we highly recommend that you visit areas such as the Night Market. Another recommended choice is Khomapastr, which was founded in 1948 and specializes in cotton products, hand-printed designs and classical patterns. There are also some cool factory shops in and around the city — great airconditioned places where you can find the best prices on fashion items and the like. Blue Port and Market Village are the two most popular shopping destinations if you like a cool-down moment from the humid temperature in Hua Hin.
