Plearnwan is an eco vintage village that features a faux Thai high street in the 1950s for the older generations to recall their good old days with the classic ferris wheel hire and the younger to learn and appreciate traditional culture. Because of that, Plearnwan is so named – Plearn is a combination of “play” and “learn” while Wan is from “wunwan”, meaning good old days.
Two-story wooden shophouses in the heart of Plearnwan are where reminiscences are kept. Plearnwan’s shops are decorated in old-fashioned style with advertisements, film posters, fashion magazines, appliances, and collections which can take you back in time to a nostalgic time.
Plearnwan includes a radio station that entertains you all day long with oldies. Also, visitors can take vintage photos with a drawn picture of Hua Hin Station as a backdrop.
At the weekend, a funfair is held with an outdoor cinema, a Ferris wheel, and a variety of amusing sidestalls and games. Plus, indulge yourselves with dishes at Khao-oon Kaengron, a renowned local restaurant, skewered sweet grilled fish, Thai style noodle rolls, Thai coconut pancakes, ice pops, Thai style soft drink and Thai style coffee.
