Also the fresh fish, veg and fruit are the cheapest in town .. Give it a try.
I used to work sit and drink beer at a stall there while my ex sold clothes. I did the same in maybe a hundred other markets in Hua Hin and Bangkok. Just another market in my eyes. Not good, not bad... just a Thai market.

I saw some baby products in photos on this thread. I would strongly suggest not buying baby related stuff in a Thai market. Cheap, as in cost, sure. Cheap, as in quality... you betcha!

Thai markets are really only good for cheap food and cheap clothes, in my opinion. Of which I have bought both in abundance. :D

Nothing great at any of the markets I've been to. Best part of the markets are the food - follow the locals and you'll be rewarded.

A couple of questions re the Pae Mai Tuesday evening market, could someone attempt to spell Pae Mai phonetically, ‘cause taxi drivers never understand what I mean because I botch it up completely. :oops:

Is it spoken like Pay My or Pie May or nothing like either???

And we’d be going by taxi, we’re staying at the Mykonos Condo (roughly where Soi 94 meets Phetkasem Rd), what approximate price would I be looking at per way?

I am not a total tight arse btw, just have turned down taxi drivers offering me totally reasonable prices as I had thought my destination was closer. Yet taken a 300baht taxi not knowing the place I was looking for was about 200 meters away.

Thanks in advance

Excellent post by the way!! :cheers:

Pie (drawn out), ok, can manage that. Thank you :-)

And the Mae bit... is that like May ( as in May June July)

and white baht bus.... hmmmm.... I've copied a whole load of info about the baht buses and their routes and timings etc... but just orange, red and green ones. Where would I get on the white one? And would it still be operating when we leave the market? Would think around 9pm-ish.

Thanks again!!

same sound for Mai as in Mai Chai for NO.
We jumped on one when we left the market around that time,just to see where it went,,,so along and up across the railway line,then down past the Amari onto Petchkasem Rd.not sure where it goes after the crossroads in town ,we got off there..So I guess you stand on your side of the road and do the reverse journey,,,,maybe somone at your reception could help you..show them the hua hin map and point near the driving range...and say talat(market)sort of a silent end t.

Copy and paste and print this out and show the driver:

ตลาดแพไม้

Talad pae mai = pad mai market

Pae as in pair
Mai as in rhymes with high.
