Bangkok 2016: Hua Mum Market

Not one that is known to tourists, Hua Mum Market caters mostly to the local crowds. Most of the vendors don’t speak much of English, this market is where your sign language, calculator and Google Translate are useful. According to its Facebook Page, the market was launched on 1 September 2015.

The good thing is Hua Mum is a short cab ride (10 mins) from Talad Rod Fai 3 (Kaset-Nawamin) so I’d suggest to check out both markets on the same night.

The market is sprawling, and frankly, quite huge.

The funny thing is as compared to the other night markets in Bangkok I have been to, the price point of this market is much higher than the rest.

The set up seems semi-permanent. There are bars and restaurants on one end.

The market is divided into two sections: one side is more free and easy.

Too cute these Totoro pouches!

There were also plenty of such branded clothes.

Then on the other side were these makeshift eateries. We spotted a full-service restaurant serving T-bone and escargots and an oyster bar. Say what?

Tried to sharpen this image but to no avail – I think I had my settings wrong.

You know how items are very repetitive at night markets? Hua Mum’s vendors seem to bring in more unique items.

The vibe of this market is quite different from the other night markets I have been to. I was surprised that the variety and quality of goods are visibly higher than the other night markets. I scored a couple of dresses, cute pouches and kitschy items that I have not seen at other night markets.

For more night markets, refer to my round up list or find them on my Bangkok Google Map.
