Plearnwan means sweet memories. Read our sweet memories, walking down memory lane at Plearnwan Market

Everywhere we travel to, there will be places where some people dubbed as tourist traps. Some of the places are real tourist traps – offering nothing much to the visitors but require much money to get in. However, there are some which are actually nice places, offering a taste of nostalgia and unique feelings when visited. In Hua Hin, there is a market known as Plearnwan Market. Some people say that this place is a tourist trap. Nevertheless, we beg to differ. We had amazing time here and true to its name, we are going to share our sweet memories, walking down memory lane at Plearnwan Market.

What is Plearnwan Market?

Plearnwan Market is a nostalgia-inducing tourist attraction in Hua Hin. It is basically a market selling local food and souvenirs but unlike other markets that only sell such items, this market makes visitors feel how life was like in Hua Hin back in the old days. Walking and visiting the shops one after another is totally a walk down memory lane at Plearnwan Market.

There is no entrance fee to visit the Market. It is also totally okay if you decide not to buy anything. This is because, the architecture of the market itself is something interesting as it triggers your memory back to an era where life was so simple and laid-back.

Surely you will walk down memory lane at Plearnwan Market

Interesting place to shoot your photos

A walk down memory lane at Plearnwan Market is a walk through the lost yesteryear. When we visited Plearnwan Market, there were not so many people around. Only a couple of foreign visitors and some locals who wanted to visit this soon-to-be closed attraction.

Fun life at Hua Hin

We walked from one shop to another, we saw a boat and a colourful minivan. Those are symbols of how fun life was at a seaside city such as Hua Hin. The lack of visitors made the laid-back vibe stronger. If life was this relax and quiet back then, surely there would not be so much stress in life.

In fact, it was so relaxing being here that we chose to sit on one of the benches and just looked around. We immersed ourselves in the moment and imagining life in Hua Hin’s 60s.

Nice place to visit

With sharp, contrasting colours all over the market, this is also one of the best places to shoot your OOTD photos. Anywhere you stand, your photos will turn out to be perfect.

We glad we visited this place.

The end for a walk down memory lane at Plearnwan Market

We were glad that we visited Plearnwan Market before its closure. It was something unique to experience and feel the sweet memories of the gone years at Plearnwan Market. Not everyone is lucky to visit this place, now that it is permanently sealed off.

Walk down memory lane at Plearnwan Market

We visited Plearnwan Market during our visit to Hua Hin in early January 2020. Before our trip, we saw a news report saying that the Plearnwan Market is closing by the end of January 2020. So, we discussed and decided to visit Plearnwan Market before its closure.

In the end, we glad that we did. It was truly a walk down memory lane at Plearnwan Market.
