Last July, Traveled to Hua Hin District.

Hua Hin is a seaside resort on the Gulf of Thailand, in the southern Thai province of Prachuap Khiri Khan.

Cicada Market is weekend night market with vendors selling art, clothing, decor & handmade goods, plus entertainment. This is a must-visit spot when you go to Hua Hin.

Looking at painters doing their art was awesome. I think this market is kind of art market. If you love art you will like this place.

Second day, went to “Rajabhakti Park” and Wat Huay Mongkol temple.

Rajabhakti Park was built by the Royal Thai Army on Thai Army property. The statues of seven notable Thai kings. They are King Ram Khamhaeng (reigned 1279-1298) of the Sukhothai period, King Naresuan (1590-1605) and King Narai (1656-1688) of the Ayutthaya period, King Taksin (1767-1782) of the Thonburi period, and King Rama I (1782-1809), King Mongkut (1851-1868), and King Chulalongkorn (1868-1910) of the Rattanakosin period. Each statue is made of bronze, with an average height of 13.9 meters. They were designed by Thailand’s Fine Arts Department.
