Trips to Bangkok can never be complete without walking along street markets. Fresh produce, food, trinkets, souvenirs and even fun games are on offer! Coming to Thailand without visiting any night markets will at least give you some regrets one day. Because these markets actually allow visitors to enjoy the “local” experience, in a budget-friendly way too.
Let’s Check out 3 Night markets in Bangkok you can’t miss!
Are you a hipster? Café-kaki?
The new Ratchada Night Market will be the right place for you to hang out. This night market made its name from a mass of hipster Cafés lining along the walkways. This market is also famous for vintage clothing on sale. If you are looking for that special pair of 1997 Air Jordan, Then you just have to check out New Ratchada Night Market.
Delightful local food and stalls offering plenty of souvenirs and trinkets are also on sale. Definitely one of the best night markets Bangkok.
Opening Times: Thursday – Sunday: 5:00 pm – 12:00 am
Location: Ratchadaphisek Road (Close by Esplanade Shopping Mall)
Direction: Take trains to the Thailand Cultural MRT Station and walk out through Exit 3. The market is only a few minutes walk from the station.
One of the best night markets in Bangkok. Instead of stalls, they use containers as shops, and the containers lined up row after row. Those containers contain unique food shops, handcraft shops, fashion clothing, accessories and other interesting arts.
The Bangkok Artbox Container Market is themed just as described, with containers renovated and decorated into beautiful and attractive shop fronts. It is also the biggest container market in the world. The usual night market stuff is on offer here (goods, food, entertainment), and also plenty of t-shirts made by local indie makers. Souvenir and jewelry are also on sale here, often custom and hand-made for you on the spot.
Unfortunately, this market is a pop-up market, which means it can close off and pop-up somewhere else in short notice. So if you plan to visit Artbox Market, be sure to check their Facebook page to find out where they are at the moment.
Opening Times: Weekends, starting noon till midnight.
Address: Changes time to time. Please check their Facebook page
JJ Green Market is different from the major Jatujak market close by. This one gives you that “Flea market” feeling, with a massive dose of retro touch. Visitors to JJ Green are mostly hip youngsters, dressed in the trendiest of fashion.
This diverse night market is split into several sections, offering mouth-watering street foods, beautiful and cheap souvenir, and of course, the section that sets it apart – where plenty of vintage products are on sale.
Opening Times: Thursday – 5:00 pm– 12:00 am
