Shoppers will adore the FN Factory Outlet, which is situated some 10kms north of Hua Hin’s city centre. This large shopping outlet complex is home to a diverse range of brands and merchandise. However, the commonality between all products is the price. Shoppers will find discounts of up to 50 percent of all items, making it one of the cheapest places to shop in the city.
Many internationally-renowned brands are found here, including clothing designers like Adidas, FCUK, Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. In addition to clothing, the complex hosts furniture, bedding and other merchandise for the household. Outside the factory are funky dinosaur models, and across from the main hall stands a smaller hall that boasts a restaurant, coffee shop and kitchenware.

Where to stay
Just across from the FN Factory Outlet is the beautiful Sheraton Resort and Spa Hua Hin. This magnificent five-star hotel sits upon the beach, and features a large lagoon/river pool that meanders throughout the resort. Not far from this spot stands the gorgeous Dusit Thani Resort, and the Devasom Resort and Spa. These high-end resorts are not only close to the outlet complex, but also provide guests with a luxurious holiday experience.
The Palms Hills Country Club and Golf Resort is only three kilometres to the southwest of FN Factory Outlet. Shoppers can enjoy a few hours at the FN Outlet centre, then return for a round of golf at this beautiful country club.
Because the factory sits on the main highway leading to and from Hua Hin, it is easy to reach this landmark via car or taxi service. This means most hotels along the beachfront of Hua Hin are within close proximity of the FN Factory Outlet.
