Floating market and Sam Phan Nam Hua hin
Just next to Hua hin three floating market and the Sam Phan Nam market, in our opinion, is the most interesting and worthy of a visit. Sam Phan Nam is also the largest of them. All three markets are substitutes, and none of them was never real traditional floating market. In our opinion this market is the closest to a real floating markets, although, of course, to them it is still far away.
This place is quite good, if not to make too large a claim to the extent of its authenticity. Yes, this is not the Bangkok floating market, some of which are to this day some of the residents of the capital are the main place for shopping, earnings and meetings. But there is almost always a lot of people, great food, have some fun. At a small artificial lake, which abounds with fish, sail boat with food and kitchens. If you want you can ride one of the boats. The choice of Souvenirs is very large, selling everything from traditional magnets to clothing. In the coastal café is very tasty and inexpensive to eat, and food can be delivered from the floating boat-dishes. Around the market built the railway with a train on which to ride.
