Most Singaporeans have been to Bangkok before, especially for its night markets where you can get anything from tasty street food to that AAA grade luxury bag knockoff.
The vibrant night market scene there is always changing and always getting better, so here are 6 night markets beyond the typical Chatuchak, Pratunam and Siam Square that you simply must visit when you next go for your shopping spree.
Suan Lum Night Bazaar
Having closed down 5 years ago, Suan Lum Night Bazaar is back up and running, albeit at a new location. What’s more, it will include all sorts of facilities and amenities all packed into a modern mall, making sure that you will get to do all your haggling and shopping and still enjoy the luxuries and comforts of city life.
Asiatique The Riverfront
This is now the go-to place for most tourists because of its numerous bars and cafes, and its spacious, airy shopping areas.
What’s more, there’s even a shuttle boat that will take you there from the Skytrain station. Enjoy not just shopping, but entertaining shows and Muay Thai fights as well.
Talad Rot Fai
If you’re a hippie and/or interested in antiques, crafts and all that arty stuff, this is the place for you. Not only will you find the usual clothes and accessories here, there are plenty of stalls stretching as far as the eye can see where you will find intricately carved woodwork, musty antique decorations and retro designs that will bring out the closet hippie in you. Make sure you go to the Srinakarin side, as Talad Rot Fai is split into three different streets.
Saphan Phut Night Market
Also known as Memorial Bridge, all kinds of clothing and fashion accessories can be found here at rock bottom prices. It is popular with the local teenage crowd and off the beaten track, so you can have more space to walk around and shop to your heart’s content without many other pesky tourists all over the place. There’s also a flower market nearby if you’ve got green fingers.
A totally new concept and take on night markets, ArtBox Bangkok houses its stalls in containers and features many young entrepreneurs selling all kinds of stylish, modern takes on all kinds of products.
You’re going to find a hip and modern crowd there, not your typical tourist crowd. Be sure to check their Facebook page to find out when they’re open, because their opening dates are not regular.
Rot Boran Market
Motorheads will absolutely go nuts here in this market, where stalls are set up in the shells of classic cars, giving the entire market a very classy and retro vibe. You’ll find plenty of second-hand knick-knacks here, as well as vinyl records and coffee and tea paraphernalia to furnish your quaint coffee table.
