Visit The 5 Best Night Markets in Bangkok – the best spots for some night browsing around the city

The night markets in Bangkok is an experience you can't leave without! Here are some of the best places to roam about for insight on Bangkok's splendid nightlife. Plan to visit at least a few of them if you happen to be in Bangkok.



Ever seen a combination of a night bazaar and a mall? Well, what was once an international trade port which is 10 minutes away from Saphan Taksin BTS station, has been transformed into a mega shopping area. There are as many as 1500 little boutiques selling both local and international brands. Within the walls of what looks like a warehouse building are 40 restaurants offering some scrumptious food. If browsing the shops ever get a little boring, there is always the ladyboy cabaret to sit back and enjoy.


Chang Chui Bangkok Plane Night Market

"Nothing is useless" is the concept behind this queer little night market that you ought to see. The major feature that has become a crowd puller here is the Tristar airline that once took to the skies. The plane has been used to set up little marketplaces selling pieces of art made from recycled items. Not only do you find souvenir worthy knickknacks here, but you can shop for other things as well and don't forget the highlight of every night market, the local street food!


Chatuchak Friday Night Market

Surely, you've heard about this weekend market, but what most people are uninformed about is that you can go shopping at this market even on a Friday. The stalls start setting up for the next day around 9 pm on Friday night and this means that most of the shops will be open. There are fewer crowds on a Friday as well so you can browse the stalls in peace. There is no heat either and the night is pleasantly cool. The bars and restaurants around here are also open on Fridays. The market is just a 24-minute drive away from hotels like Pathumwan Princess Hotel.


Khlong Thom Market

This is also called the Flashlight Market because buyers have to often look at the products with a torch. The area is quite crowded on Saturdays as there is an array of items on sale from clothing to electronics and toys. This market is well known for second had goods. Apart from the little stalls set up close to one another, there is also a three-storey building that has car accessories and toys for sale.


Patpong Night Market

This is a very busy night market and is usually the first market tourists visit in Bangkok. The reason is that there's many a Bangkok hotel, 5 star luxury accommodation, hostels, boutique hotels and every type of accommodation you can think of is located quite close to the market. There are several go-go bars around here as well, so it is no wonder that the night market is quite crowded. Make sure you check the quality of products here before paying the marked price. Bargain as best you can too.
