The Must-Visit List of Night Markets in Bangkok
An Outstanding Shopping and Culinary Experience
Urban nightlife in Bangkok is one of the most appealing features of Thailand’s favourite tourist destination. Tourists can roam around the city, grabbing a bite of street food while shopping at one of the many night markets in Bangkok.
Train Night Market Srinakarin
While Srinakarin is just one out of multiple locations of the train night market, Ratchada (adversely affected by COVID-19 and closed) these are the most popular ones among tourists and locals, easily reachable from a boutique hotel in Bangkok. A 30-minute ride from Maitria Hotel Rama 9 will lead you to a market that offers a unique shopping experience. While the food and beverage options at Srinakarin are much lesser than it was at Ratchada, the vintage shopping experience here is one that cannot be beaten by any other train night market.
Step into a wonderland of food in Chinatown, as it opens up at 6.00 p.m. for visitors to taste the goodness of the many street foods in Bangkok. Immerse in the aroma of freshly cooked snacks under the city lights and quench your thirst at Soi Nana.
Chatuchak Weekend Market
Although the name suggests that the Chatuchak market takes place during the weekend, a lesser-known fact is that the market begins on Friday night. This is the world’s largest weekend market that hosts 15,000 stalls with a participation of over 200,000 visitors every weekend. If you wish to avoid the bustling noise and large crowds at the market, Friday night would be the ideal pick to visit the Chatuchak Market.
Jodd, Fairs was introduced as a substitute for the Ratchada Market which faced major losses and downturns due to COVID-19 and its adverse effects on tourism. Therefore, the organisation behind one of Bangkok’s biggest night markets opened up Jodd Fairs at a different location with amazing food options and entertaining nightlife for its visitors.
