Due to the obvious reason of the flood that threatens the livelihood of Bangkok, Hua Hin, always a couple of hours away, is now teeming with accidental tourists who find refuge even for a short while. And it is surprising the town never runs out of attractions even for repeated visitors like ourselves.

Hua Hin Sam Phan Nam Floating Market in Tubtai Subdistrict is one of the newer destinations of its kind. Its spacious venue lends the necessary retail space to over 250 shops that offer a variety of food, miscellaneous utilitarian items and gifts. Large water reservoir provides the much needed counterbalance to the heat.

The key attraction here is perhaps the setting itself as it is infinitely photogenic and very Hua Hin thanks to the characteristic architecture. Red building contrasts superbly with the crisp blue sky. Postboxs on site to help you tell people you wish they were there. I could not resist the temptation to pick up a nice postcard and wrote a song to cheer my sister up from the difficult situation she was facing. It would have been great if she tagged along as a place like this could easily help her unwind.

By car, inbound for Hua Hin, it is easier to reach the market by taking the bypass road to the right towards Prachuap Khiri Khan. You will see Wat Huay Mongkol on the right and then the market will be on your left. Signage is provided along the way. Those arriving in Hua Hin by bus or train can get to the market for only 20 Baht. A bus shuttles back and forth between the station and the market every half hour from 07:00 A.M. to 07:00 P.M.

The upcoming New Year festivity is a good excuse to visit Hua Hin Sam Phan Nam Floating Market as they have a celebration that runs the entire duration of December. Be sure to have a stroll there next time you are in Hua Hin.
