Bangkok is a shopping haven for most of us who have been there and even if you’re not keen on shopping, visiting the big city for their food and warm hospitality is definitely a must. For shopaholics, paying a visit to the famous Chatuchak Market for bargains is definitely one of the things on their to-do list. However, it can get rather hot during the day, so why not do your shopping at night, when the sun has set, right?
Here are some other night markets that are definitely worth a visit for their carnival-like atmosphere where bargains are aplenty and food is in abundance!
1. Talad Rot Fai
Even if you have never been to Bangkok, you might have heard of Talad Rot Fai, or its translation, Train (Rot Fai) Market (Talad) before. If you’re confused about the location, don’t worry because there are actually two versions in Bangkok, so make sure you are clear on which one you want to visit.
The first one is Talad Rot Fai Srinakarin and it is an enormous night market that was previously located at Kampaeng Phet. They have now relocated to Srinakarin Soi 51, next to Seacon Square Mega Shopping Mall. For Talad Rot Fai Ratchada, it is a smaller version of its big brother and the best part is that this one’s located closer to the city.
Both night markets have an array of vintage items, antiques, clothes, and plenty of delectable food to tempt your taste buds. Plus, they have really cool vintage vehicles that double as cool cocktail cars! We suggest paying the place a visit during the weekend to get the ultimate experience.
Talat Rot Fai Srinakarin
Address: Srinakarin Road Soi 51, Bangkok (behind Seacon Square shopping centre); take the BTS to Udomsuk, and then take a taxi or motorbike taxi
Opening hours: Thursday – Sunday, 5pm – 1am
Talat Rot Fai Ratchada
Address: Ratchadaphisek Road, Bangkok (behind Esplanade Cineplex); signposted and easily reachable on foot from MRT Thailand Cultural Centre, exit 3
Opening Hours: Thursday – Sunday, 5pm – 1am
2. Changchui Night Market
Now, we bet you don’t see this every day – a massive airplane right in the middle of a night market! It is actually a retired plane and the aircraft is located in one of Bangkok’s newest night markets that was opened in July 2017. This night market isn’t like the traditional ones that you know but instead, it is actually a creative space.
Don’t worry, you can still get your retail therapy here as there are plenty of fashion stalls! Also, refill your growling tummy at one of the beautiful concept cafes and food trucks. Plus, after you are tired from all that shopping, hang out at the vintage cinema and remember to take plenty of #ootd shots in front of the airplane!
Address: 460/8 Sirindhorn Road, Bangpld, Bangkok
Opening hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 4pm – 11pm
3. Victory Monument Night Market
Shopaholics, take note! This night market is one of the best places to go to if you want to nab awesome deals for yourself. Discerning shoppers will know that this place offers better bargains on fashion, accessories, shoes, mobile phone accessories and many more compared to shopping malls. Remember to haggle!
Address: Victory Monument; take the BTS to Victory Monument Station; exit 3/4
Opening hours: 10am – 10pm daily
4. Talad Neon Night Market
If you are staying in Pratunam during your holiday, then drop by Talad Neon as it is just a stone’s throw away from Platinum Fashion Mall. We’re sure you know where Platinum is!
This happening night market opened to much fanfare at the end of 2016 and the location is a big plus point for them. Head on over there to continue your shopping after the mall closes and grab delicious meals to eat!
Address: Phetchaburi Road between Phetchaburi Soi 23 and 29 (opposite of beginning of Chidlom Road)
Opening hours: 4pm – 12am daily
5. Hua Mum Night Market
For those who are sick and tired of jostling tourists at other night markets, this might just be the spot for you. Hua Mum night market is apparently a hidden gem that is not known to many tourists. But now, the secret is out! Take a stroll around the market and you will find absolutely everything you want, such as handcrafted items, fashionable clothes and of course, yummy food.
Address: 11, Kaset-Nawamin Rd, Lat Phrao
Opening hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 6pm – 12am
6. JJ Green Night Market
Jatujak Green or JJ Green as it is fondly known, is a popular night market that is located near the famous Chatuchak Weekend Market. JJ Green is the trendier sibling, which caters to the young, hip and trendy crowd that is more laid-back.
The market focuses more on vintage and secondhand items, which will definitely appeal to bargain hunters; but the best part is that you can end your shopping spree at the adjacent watering holes for a drink or two!
Address: 1, Kamphaeng Phet 3, Chatuchak
Opening hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 6pm – 1.30am
7. Liab Duan Night Market
This night market is another one that’s popular among the locals but not visited by many tourists, mainly because of the location that makes it slightly more difficult for tourists to access. Here’s the good part about it though: You can expect the prices of items to be way more affordable since they aren’t marked up!
You can find almost anything you want here but take note that the opening hours may be a bit erratic as shop owners open and close whenever they please.
Address: Ramintra, Pradit Manutham Road
Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 5pm – 2am
8. Khao San Road
If you’re looking to stuff yourself with good food then you have come to the right place. Khao San Road is famous for being THE backpacker area as there are many budget hotels and bars located there. Once the sun sets, expect a lively atmosphere as people throng the streets for some good Thai massages, shopping, crazy parties, and some food from the many restaurants and bars along the road.
Address: Khao San Road
Opening hours: 5pm – 12am daily
So, now you know more places to check out for your next shopping spree in Bangkok. Happy shopping, everyone! 😀
