7 Best night markets in Bangkok – Nocturnal attractions of Bangkok

Visiting night markets is one of the must-do things in Bangkok, and there's a huge number of them. The diverse collections of goods found at these markets never cease to fascinate the tourist.

1

Asiatique

In addition to a night bazaar, Asiatique throws a mall into the bargain. It takes only 10 minutes from Saphan Taksin BTS station to get to the place. The place was once an international trade port, and now it's transformed into a bustling shopping precinct with nearly 1,500 boutiques and 40 restaurants. Asiatique welcomes visitors from 4 pm to indulge in its shopping scene; visitors can grab something to eat as well. If you don't feel like you've had your fill of fun, you can enjoy a cabaret show performed in the evening. The reputation of the market is so much so that a tourist can easily find a Bangkok city hotel close to the place.

Chang Chui Bangkok Plane Night Market

This market gives night markets another definition. You find a heterogeneous collection of things at Chang Chui Bangkok Night Market. While you can see a range of traditional items on offer, the market also has a modern touch to it. The unusual-looking art pieces grab everyone's attention, and the dining options found at the market deserve praise too.

Chatuchak Friday Night Market

This massive space with diversity is packed with crowds on weekends, but many don't know that the market is in its best form after 9 pm. If you visit at night, you might not find as many things as you would on the weekends, but if you were to visit the market at night, with the weather being much cooler, you'd have a much more relaxed shopping excursion. The atmosphere found there in the evening is very much chilled out, and with the many restaurants found at the market, there's no chance of you going hungry.

Khaosan Road

The backpackers' favourite, Khaosan Road never rests. There's a number of things that interests tourists, and there are also travel stalls where you can get city tours organised. Tailors are in their element, measuring you up for a finely stitched suit. What's more, the whole length of the road is lined with convenience stores, internet cafes, chemists and banks.

5

Khlong Thom Market

It was previously known as Flashlight Market, which was indicative of the fact that the shoppers needed torchlights for better viewing at night. Now with the name Khlong Thom Market, the market attracts as many customers as it did before. This particular night market is known for selling second-hand goods and various other bits and pieces. The collection on offer includes electronics, DVDs, CDs, clothes and spare car parts.

6

Patpong Night Market

Tourists and locals alike find Patpong Night Market interesting. Located in the built-up region of Silom – an easy location to find if you are travelling from a place like Pathumwan Princess Hotel – Patpong Night Market is one of the places in Bangkok that never runs out of its energy; it's always buzzing with crowds who seem to pace up and down endlessly. While there is a plethora of things to buy, you should know that some items can be of dubious quality, and to never agree to the first price you are offered: haggling is a necessity if you are shopping at Patpong Night Market.

7

Rod Fai Market

A massive open-air bazaar found in the eastern part of the city, Rod Fai Market weighs more on the vintage side. Everything you thought is antiquated and obsolete can be found at Rod Fai Market: collectables resembling a time that's long forgotten and antique furniture are a ubiquitous sight at the market.
