Plearn Wan Shopping Village

We were in Hua Hin, Thailand for a week recently. I’ve blogged about our visit to the famous Santorini Park, Vana Nava Water Jungle as well as our stay experience at Novotel Hua Hin Cha-am Beach Resort & Spa.

Today, I shall blog on another tourist attraction – Plearn Wan, a recreated retro village in Hua Hin offering quaint shops and eateries.

Our driver dropped us on the opposite side of the road so we had to use the flyover to get across. This is the view from the flyover. Beautiful clear blue skies because it was scorching hot that day.

Plearn Wan Shopping Village

Plern Wan Opening Hours: 10:00 – 22:00 (Mon-Thurs), 10:00 – midnight (Fri), 09:00 – midnight (Sat), 09:00 – 22:00 (Sun) Location: Phetkasem Road (between Hua Hin Sois 38 and 40)

Tel: +66 (0)32 520 311-2

No entrance fee required however we are not allowed to bring in our food and drinks into the village. You may try keeping some in your backpack though as they did not check ours just don’t hold it openly in your hands.

A step into Plearnwan brings you to a blast from the past with wooden houses and shops.

Plern Wan simply means the ‘joy of yesteryear’ hence there are old school attractions such as this Ferris Wheel.

I believe it will look nicer at night with all the lights lighted up but no, we did not return come night time to check it out.

There is also a carousel ride.

Ayden is already sweating buckets as this place is open air and walking here in the afternoon with the sun right above our heads is not really a good idea. If you are planning to visit, please come in the evening :lol:

As you walk around, there are many photo opportunities.

Let’s take the boat and go fishing.

Or drive a truck to the Fun Fair.

Time travel back to the past and this will be our car :-P

Walk along this main road to explore the many things for sale from clothes to souvenirs to the main attraction here at Plearn Wan – the FOOD!

Explore one food cart to another along the walkway and indulge in Hua Hin’s famous street food.

Charcoal, Original, Sweet Potato and Pumpkin balls.

Crepes, Coconut Pudding and Pandan Pudding

Mini Savoury Crepes

Sweet Pandan Pudding

I don’t remember the price for all these but I think they are not expensive. Sorry, I just know how to eat while Darling paid for them.

Too pretty to be eaten lollies.

Ice Cream Pop

The ice cream pop is 10THB. I remember because it is written in the picture above :lol:

The boys learned to make this ice popsicle from scratch when we were in Surin, Phuket a couple of years ago. 

Here’s the video of the boys making frozen popsicle by the poolside. 

It is interesting to know that we can make ice popsicle without the need of a freezer. Just by using ice and salt, we can freeze these lolly. It is purely science and the boys had a great time making frozen popsicles for the poolside guests two years ago. 

Little Ayden got all excited over the old school toys here. 

We let them buy some. 

Ayden dubbed this his ‘tablet’. So cute! He ditched his electrical gadget for this! Do you remember playing this? I remember we had a bigger version of it and I loved going to the sink to change the water inside. 

The boys also bought a couple of toy guns here. 

My favourite – handicrafts!

I did not buy any though as I doubt the paper fish will survive the flight home. 

Overall, Plearnwan is an interesting place to walk about. It is not a huge place so you can allocate just an hour here. I would highly recommend to come in the evening when it is cooler. Do make prior transport arrangement to fetch you back to your hotel as the taxis that monopolies outside Plearnwan charge quite a stiff rate even for a short journey. We refused to use their services and told them off that Grab offers half of what they are demanding for and they quietly agree to our rate. Always do your homework when you are in a foreign land. 

As usual, I’d like to end this post with our video of Plearn Wan:

    The street food looked different from ours.

    The Ferris wheel will look nice at night.

    I have been looking closely at all your photos of Hua Hin and will definitely visit on my next trip to Thailand. It has so much attractions and interesting sights besides the awesome beach where the King’s Summer Palace is.

    Seem like s must visit place to anyone who travel to Hua Hin. :)

    That road in your first pic looks like in Sibu, not so many cars, peace and quiet…and clean.

  • //

    Seems like there a lot of places to visit in Hua Hin huh. :)

    The street food looks yummy. But there are no flies at all? So hygienic. :D

  • //

    you all did not try the Charcoal, Original, Sweet Potato and Pumpkin balls? Wow, you are a well seasoned traveller to tell the taxi drivers off until they agree to your rate.

    Yes, I had heard so much about the famous Santorini Park and Hua Hin, I hope to make this my next destination if I visit Thailand again, after I visited Bangkok and Krabi.

    Cute and handsome Ayden sweating away…
