The night markets of Thailand and especially Hua Hin are renowned for their fresh local cuisine with the tastes of a traditional lifestyle and the friendly stall holders all trying their hardest to provide visitors with an experience to remember.
Our markets may be found tucked away in the back streets, in open air settings or even overlooking the ocean; especially during special events. Seasoned travellers seeking out these markets don’t get nervous about the food or personal security on offer and are experienced in ordering what best suits their palate. However for others a real market experience may best be realised in more ‘civilised’ surroundings where they don’t need to negotiate back streets and are sheltered from the possibility of inclement weather ruining the experience.
That’s where the Dusit Thani weekly market shines; offering the required peace of mind but with the ambience and sought after cuisine of a genuine Thai street market. Each Friday evening the San Marco Restaurant takes on a very different persona to the renowned restaurant serving authentic Italian specialties becomes the Dusit’s Hua Hin Night Market. Traditional Thai food mat be served from live cooking stations but also from a traditional floating market water craft drifting beside diners along the Resort’s nearby manmade water way. There’s also live entertainment from an acoustic trio to further enhance the market atmosphere with a backdrop of cascading starlights.
Just as the downtown markets offer much more that Thai food favourites so the Dusit’s market offers less traditional fare such as the Japanese deep fried food station or teppanyaki (beef, chicken or salmon) on the iron griddle. There’s also pasta and pizza stations before sweet treats which include classic Thai favourites such as khanon krok. Another reason for the popularity of Hua Hin night markets is the cost. At 590 THB for a market experience within a luxury resort setting, the Dusit Hua Hin Night Market also ticks this box.
