4 Best Night Markets in Bangkok - Shopping After Dark

Day or night, Bangkok most certainly is the best city when it comes to shopping. Experience the 'dark' side of shopping in Bangkok's night markets which are so lively & mostly look as bright as day!

1

Rot Fai Market

If you want to explore one massive market after dark, it definitely does not get better than the Rot Fai market. Very popular for its retro memorabilia, this market is for many a favourite when it comes to night markets for it has a lively ambience that one can never really get enough of. Located in the eastern suburbs of the city, the market is segregated into 3 main sections. The first section is dedicated to the world of fashion. If you are in Bangkok you need no explanation of this sector. Be it clothes, shoes or accessories you find it all in abundance here and the best part is they all come at very reasonable prices. If you are here for souvenirs, the second sector has a good collection of all things Thai perfect to take back home as memorabilia, and if you want to 'taste' Thailand there is nothing like the 3rd area of the market that constantly whiffs with the aroma of goodies being fried.

JJ Green

This is one vintage flee market that has a myriad of interesting items on sale. More popularly known as a local drinking hangout spot this market is constantly thronged with visitors at night who consist both of shoppers and those looking to simply hang out. Located in close proximity to the very famous 15000 stalled Chatuchak Weekend Market, JJ Green can easily be spotted. More popular among the younger crowd, the laidback ambience of this market is considered its most attractive feature.

Asiatique The Riverfront

Now this is one night market that you are bound to fall in love with. A perfect evening hangout spot for the whole family, Asiatique The Riverfront has everything from wide avenues, cool river breezes, and plenty of regional cuisine. Unlike typical night markets in Bangkok, Asiatique is very classy and comes with clean bathrooms – a unique feature in markets of this category. However if you are looking for the dirt cheap prices this may not the place for you. Prices at Asiatique are slightly higher than elsewhere but for the ambience and choice of food available it definitely seems worth the while. For those of you looking for a luxury hotel in Bangkok by the Chao Phraya River, the Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok is a choice worth considering for the long line of attractions along the river including Asiatique are all in the vicinity.

Patpong

Now this may not appeal to everybody for Patpong offers imitation stuff among the many other items. In this particular night market you find a myriad of items especially when it comes to bags, watches and trainers. The atmosphere here is always lively and provides a fun night out with some retail therapy thrown in.
