Baan Silapin information
Lonely Planet review
Local painter Tawee Kase-ngam established this artist collective in a shady grove 4km west of Th Phetkasem. The galleries and studio spaces showcase the works of 19 artists, many of whom opted out of Bangkok’s fast-paced art world in favour of Hua Hin’s more relaxed atmosphere and scenic landscape of mountains and sea.
There are rotating exhibitions, while outlying clay huts shelter the playful sculptures. Art classes are available for adults on Tuesday and Thursday and for children on Saturday.
