Wheelchair accessible local markets Hua Hin

Hua Hin has some nice local markets where the citizens of Hua Hin are shopping for their groceries. The Chat Chai Market is one of these markets where you can shop even when you are disabled. It is located in the centre of Hua Hin just 200 meter from our wheelchair accessible apartment Tira Tiraa.

You can buy fresh fruit, vegetables, fresh and dried fish, shrimp, chicken, meat, clothes, toys and some more. At night local farmers brings their goods into town and early in the morning, around 7 they start to sell their product. It is an all day market. The market closes in the afternoon or when products are sold out.

We love it to shop here. People are friendly and appreciate you buying their products. Sometimes they warn you. Telling you this is no falang food. But when you like to taste different kinds of food don't let them stop you from buying.

Visit this market in the morning. This is when local people are coming to buy their food. But when you are in a wheelchair keep in mind that the paths are narrow. When it is busy you need patience to see this market where women fall asleep behind their stalls and the neighbour is watching their small businesses. It is one of these places to make nice pictures during one of your holidays.
