This is the second article in a six-part series about Hua Hin, Thailand, a coastal city near  Bangkok on the Gulf of Thailand. This post is about the Night Market in Hua Hin Town. Hua Hin hosts the annual King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament  ,a fun and unique sporting event. The 2012 tournament inspired me to write the children’s picture book  Ellie the Elephant  about an elephant that dreams of playing in the tournament.

 Thailand has many night markets, and the one in Hua Hin is excellent. Located in the center of Hua Hin Town just off Phetkasem Road (Petchkasem or Highway 4), it’s opennightly from 6 p.m. to about 11 p.m. or whenever the vendors close up shop. Most stallssell food, clothing, or souvenirs. It’s touristy but also frequented by locals. The Hua Hin Night Market covers a four block area packed with vendors. When we visited on aSaturday night in November 2012, it was bustling with shoppers.Why does Thailand have so many night markets? The average temperature in Thailand isso hot that many people try to avoid doing anything outside until the sun sets and the air cools down. Evenings in Thailand can be hot but are generally cooler than daytimes. Thaimarkets are known for selling many of the same things – you can find the same souvenirsin stall after stall – but each market has a different flavor. Hua Hin Night Market is noexception. It’s perhaps best known for its good selection of fresh food, especially seafood,and wide range of local products for sale.The iconic Hua Hin sign at the market’s entrance is a good place to take a photo to tellfriends back home that you’re shopping in Thailand. Makeshift stalls crowd the pedestrian street that stretches for two blocks between two-story buildings with evenmore businesses.The delicious foods – raw, cooked, or fried – taste as delicious as they look. A vendor gave my son a balloon that he enjoyed while my wife and I browsed a stall selling grilled chicken and local wines and spirits.

The market’s many restaurants and bars offer a mix of Thai and international cuisine. HuaHin’s location on the coast of the Gulf of Thailand makes it a great place to enjoy freshseafood.We didn’t see Ellie the Elephant shopping at the Hua Hin Night Market. Then again, she probably wouldn’t have fit! She might have enjoyed the some of the yummy tropicalfruits on display, but the vendors would not have been happy if she accidentally knocked over their stalls!
