From smiling happy people, mouthwatering street food, vibrant atmosphere to a great variety of things to shop, Bangkok features a fair share of markets to shop. You will not regret visiting a Thai market from where you are sure to pick your favourite designer cloth or handbag!


Chatuchak Market

Popularly known among locals as the mother market of all other markets in Bangkok, the Chatuchak Market is a not to be missed market. This outdoor market is one of the biggest markets featuring approximately 15000 stalls. Visiting Chatuchak is not just about picking your favourite good, it will give you a sweltering and humid experience. If you are staying at a Bangkok family hotel the likes of Pathumwan Princess Hotel, it's a 15-minute drive to reach this market.


Talat Rot Fai Market

Also called the Train Night Market features flavoursome street food snacks, antique curios and it gives you a unique night bazaar feel. Up towards the back end of the market is lined with many bars playing a mixture of western and Thai pop tunes. In addition, you'll come across a combination of snack stalls, handbags, shoes, and clothes.


Talat Rot Fai

Talat Rot Fai is one of the two Train Night Markets in Bangkok. You will not find any trains as it is implied. There are 3 main sections called Market Zone, Warehouse Zone and Rod's Antiques. You can do some real bargains at the Market Zone. This is the best place to buy some souvenirs and gifts to bring back home. Electronics, household things, accessories, and second-hand clothes can be found in the Warehouse Zone.


Talat Rot Fai 2

When compared with most of the markets in Thailand, one can reach Talat Rot Fai 2 without much difficulty as it is located close to Thailand Cultural Centre Subway Station. It's an open-air market selling handy-crafts, delicious street food, knick-knacks and souvenirs.


Neon Night Market

Staying true to its name, the Neon Night Market or Talad Neon Night Market is alive at night and it's the best place to do some evening shopping. You'll certainly be spoilt for choice with its range of latest fashion clothes, accessories, bars, street food, and live music. Don't miss some of its scrumptious seafood here.


Sampeng Market

Located in Bangkok's Chinatown, this market is undoubtedly the busiest and the most vibrant of all markets. A range of stalls and small shops are lined in a narrow shopping alley called Sampeng Lane. If you don't want to burn a hole in your pocket, this will be an ideal place to buy everything from cheap kitchenware, clothes, random knick-knacks, dried food, China porcelain and more.


Artbox Night Market

This night market is a must-visit when you are in Bangkok since you will be amazed to see how stalls are built in shipping containers. It has a cool hipster-kind of vibe which will make you linger hours to shop your favourite handbags, clothes and shoes.


Pak Khlong Talat

Fond of flowers? Pak Khlong Talat sells a wide variety of colourful flowers. The lovely aroma and the sight of colourful flowers attract a large number of tourists and locals alike. You can also find fresh fruits and vegetables here. It will be hard for you to take your eyes away from sacks of jasmine and marigold flowers here.


Klong San Market

This shop is more popular among locals; therefore, you will not come across many tourists or souvenirs here. Klong San Market has everything for those wanting a new look! From trendy clothes, shoes, and jewellery, there is something exciting for everyone who visits this market. You will also get an opportunity to mingle with locals to know more about Thai culture and their lifestyles.


Khlong Toei Market
