Plearnwan Vintage Village at Hua Hin
Plearnwan is one of the places that wasn’t in my plan but it caught my attention when I drove past the entrance various times in Hua Hin. Plearnwan is located at 38 Soi 40, Hua Hin Road, Hua Hin. It is located on the main road near the Hua Hin town on the opposite side if you are coming from Cha Am.

Let me give a short introduction on Hua Hin. Located in the South of Bangkok, Hua Hin is a town and it is around two hour drive from capital. It is a beach town, often visited by the Thai royals and locals especially weekends but now the town is attracting more foreign tourists. Hua Hin is located at the South of Cha Am another popular beach town which is less than half an hour drive on Highway no 4.
Plearnwan is a vintage village or some called it eco vintage village and it is built in 2009 if I don’t get the year wrong. I visited the Plearnwan last year and it is looks and feels as if it is brand new.
Plearnwan is a theme of wooden buildings which includes shopping arcades of two storey old style building. Entrance is FREE for all visitors but you have to pay for parking (located next to the building).
Plearnwan is another project built for tourism in Hua Hin like many others in this beach town. You can tell the success of Plearnwan by the amount of visitors and the shops opened in this village.
You can find many unique things to buy, to shop as well as to eat. This is one of the main reasons why shopping in Thailand is always fun.
I love the fashion boutiques here. They sell really cool T-Shirts and dresses. The prices are slightly higher than the ones in Bangkok but I don’t mind paying extras for the designs.
There are beauty saloon, photo studio, outdoor cinema screen, 20 rooms guesthouse Piman Plern Wan and a small theme park. It is amazing how a village in this size houses so many things.
Get your camera and start snapping pictures and walk around the village for shopping with their unique boutique and shops. If you want to chill, there are a few cafes and restaurants or just visit their food stalls for snack.
If you are in Hua Hin, don’t miss visiting Plearnwan, you won’t regret it.
The best way to travel to Hua Hin for Malaysians is via Bangkok. Take the minivan at Victory Monument and you can reach Hua Hin in two hour time for 200 Baht. If you are the adventurous type, self drive from Malaysia and you can reach Hua Hin on the third day in a slow drive from the border.
