17 Bangkok Night Markets To Visit With Sights From Vintage Cars To A Plane To A Ferris Wheel

Bangkok night markets to visit 

When it comes to our country’s top attractions for holiday seekers, we bet markets will be among the first to cross your mind. No matter which market we go to, we can’t seem to spot crowds of tourists snapping photos of them guzzling on plates of mango sticky rice.

However, many markets in Thailand are open during the day and closed in the evenings, so it could be hard for you to visit because you’re stuck at work.

So check out these 17 night markets in Bangkok the moment you clock out – where you can shop near a big plane or a giant Ferris wheel while admiring cool street art.

What is the most famous night market in Bangkok?

Honestly, it’s hard to tell which night market is the most famous as all of them are popular among tourists and Thai folks. But, in our opinion, Chatuchak Market has been the liveliest night market for such a long time and it’s never changed.

Chatuchak Market offers a staggering array of products, including clothing, accessories, handicrafts, antiques, home decor, pets, plants, and delicious street food. You can get lost in the maze of narrow alleyways filled with colourful displays and unique finds, making it a must-visit destination for tourists and locals alike.

One of the highlights of Chatuchak Market is its lively atmosphere, where shoppers can haggle for bargains, sample a variety of Thai street food delicacies, and immerse themselves in the bustling energy of Bangkok’s vibrant street life. Whether you’re hunting for souvenirs, seeking trendy fashion pieces, or simply want to experience the vibrant cultural tapestry of Thailand, Chatuchak Market promises an unforgettable shopping adventure that captures the essence of Bangkok’s dynamic and diverse lifestyle.

1. Box Space Ratchayothin (บ็อกซ์ สเปซ รัชโยธิน) – creative container shops near Chatuchak 

Image credit: @thesmartlocalth via Instagram

As of 15th February 2023, Box Space has reopened. However, since some readers had earlier written in October 2022 to share that Box Space seemed partially closed with only 3-4 shops open, do check its socials before going down.

Thai people have been known for being highly creative. If you doubt whether that’s true, let this market be an example.

Box Space Ratchayothin is a night market near the Chatuchak District in Bangkok where you will be greeted with many colourful containers repurposed into shops and restaurants when you arrive.

The market offers three zones for visitors to stroll around: Market Zone, Plaza Zone, and Hangout Zone. For those you love buying clothes to jam your closet, the Market Zone is where you will be browsing around cheap stylish clothes.

After you’ve bought some clothes, visit The Plaza Zone to satisfy your cravings with various food stalls, or chill out with your friends in the bars and restaurants in the Hangout Zone after long hours of work.

2. Chang Chui Plane Night Market (ตลาดนัดช่างชุย) – hipster Bangkok night market with a giant plane

Image credit: @edyjunary via Instagram

Like what you’d expect at most Bangkok markets, Chang Chui Market is filled with art galleries, workshops, and creative spaces where people can meet up. Events, like seminars, concerts, and parties also regularly occur here.

But nothing stands out like this old giant plane in the market. TBH, it’s a major draw for locals and tourists alike to keep returning for post-apocalyptic photo ops on the ‘gram.

Image credit: via Instagram

Peeking inside the plane, you’ll find a fine dining restaurant with old furniture that reminds us of a fancy eatery with intricate carpets, stone statues of angels and actual chandeliers.

Image credit: @lamaladaniela via Instagram

We hear that many of the shops and cafes were built from galvanised iron sheets, which contribute to the market exuding an old-school, edgier ambience. Furthermore, the works of art here are upcycled from old glass panes or teak panels. So get your camera ready because you will likely get some cool shots if you stay till the sun sets.

When dusk falls and evening’s twilight approaches, many revelers flock to bars and saloons for drinks in Chang Chui Market. 

For craft beer drinkers, some saloons offer craft beer from ฿200 (~USD6)/cup. Be quick to get a table because they usually fill up quite fast in the evenings.

Image credit: @kristenipo via Instagram

We’d also swing by this place right before leaving, even if not for drinks. Under this giant plane sits a sprawling area to dine with your companions till the market is closed.

To get here, you can get off at MRT Sirindhorn and take a taxi to the market, which takes seven to ten minutes by car.

Address: 460/8 Sirindhorn Rd, Bang Phlat, Bangkok 10700
Opening hours:

3. Asiatique: The Riverfront (เอเชียทีค) – riverside market with a giant ferris wheel

Image credit: @hawaiiflip808 via Instagram

When you travel in Bangkok, you can’t miss Asiatique The Riverfront, a night market by the Chao Phraya River.

This market used to be a former trading port, but was later renovated into a night market where warehouses have been given a new lease of life.

Situated inside these old warehouses are walking streets with antique shops, artisan crafts, and restaurants decorated with vintage artwork.

Image credit: @bangkokbehindlenses via Instagram

For first-time visitors, you may be overwhelmed by the large area to cover. Just note that the market comprises many zones: a graffiti zone, an old town zone, and a ride zone. So pick one that interests you, and look for signs or a map of the premises to get there.

If skating is your favourite pastime, bring a skateboard and amaze your friends with a flip at the skate park here.

Image credit: @ploy.064x via Instagram

To round out our to-do list, definitely pay a visit to the humongous Ferris wheel at night – so you’ll get to see it all lit up – for 360° views of the Chao Phraya River.

We’ve compiled ticket prices below:

  • ฿400 (~USD12) for adults

Srinagarindra Train Night Market is one of the most well-known rod fai – a.k.a. train – night markets in Bangkok. Seasoned shoppers will know that they’re known for their vast array of streetwear outlets, street food stalls, and saloons.

Since this market is also branded as a vintage market, don’t be too surprised if you see a lot of old stuff sold in many spots.

Image credit: @nomadic3650 via Instagram

While walking around, you may catch sight of this gigantic plane peeking out at you from the rooftop. We’d take it as a place marker for a gathering point to meet up with your friends.

If you are a fan of classic cars, you’d also probably be able to spot these models of old 4-wheel drives scattered around the market for that necessary IG shot.

That long walk navigating the many rows of shops getting you thirsty? Thankfully, there’s plenty of outdoor seating for a swig of ice-cold beer straight from the bottle at the bars here.

Bangkok night marketsImage credit: @time_to_review via Instagram

Traditionally, Chatuchak Night Market is known for its affordable streetwear, at warehouse or wholesale prices. You’ll find plenty of options, for all genders with jeans, hoodies, coats, and athletic wear covered in different stalls.

So if you think you won’t be able to resist buying tons of clothes to refresh your wardrobe, bring a friend or two to help carry your haul home.

Image credit: @ariane.le via Instagram

Besides clothes, we’d recommend hitting up the street food stalls, for their cheap and diverse dishes. If you’re a newcomer in Thailand and interested in trying Thai food, roam around this market and try as many items as you’d fancy.

This accessible market is very close to the MRT Kamphaeng Phet and Chatuchak stations. You can get off at these both stations and reach there on foot in less than five minutes.

After you’ve filled your bellies, or quenched your thirst with a coconut smoothie, browse through thousands of racks of trendy clothes in individual stalls around the night market. We’d set aside about an hour to browse around, and a good tip is to look carefully at the options as you may encounter vintage pieces if you’re lucky.

If the thought of having a haircut occurs to you when you’re hard at work refreshing your wardrobe, drop by this vintage barbershop named DunkDunk Vintage.

For the gents among us, you’ll be able to get your hair cut and washed for only ฿300 (~USD9). Do note that getting here can be a tad harder than other markets as there are no public train stations nearby. You’ll need to take a taxi here if you don’t have a car.

Image credit: via Instagram

Indy Night Market is a large lifestyle night market in Thon Buri where locals flock to for dinner, drinks, and a spot of shopping. Besides being home to many must-try food spots on local Thai websites, some famous food franchises can be found here, like Burger King, Domino’s Pizza, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Starbucks etc.

So if you’d like to combine well-known franchised F&B brands with the vibe of walking through a typical Thai market, this marketplace is truly the best of both worlds.

Those on the prowl for clothing and accessory brands by local designers – besides those you’d find in mainstream malls such as Platinum Fashion Mall in central Bangkok – will be pleased to note that you’ll find a lot of caps, shirts, jeans and athleisure wear by them.

Image credit: @cactus.siam via Instagram

Clothes and food have been spoken for on this list. So it’s time for some representation – for plants. We spotted mini potted cacti and bonsais at this stall, perfect for adding a little colour to a dreary work desk or work-from-home space.  

Image credit: @keattichai via Instagram

There’s not a day that goes by without me extoling the virtues of a piping hot bowl of freshly cooked shabu shabu meat in spicy soup. This market has plenty of options as well, with cute Finding Nemo-inspired fishcake to boot.

Image credit: บาร์มหานิยม อินดี้ ดาวคะนอง via Facebook

Before you leave, round out the day by saying cheers with drinks to a life free from the shackles of Covid-19 – hopefully – at this bar with live music performances. We think it’s good to go off the beaten track sometimes – Siam central shopping district we see you – but it’s hidden gems like this market that make trips memorable for sure.

For added context, Jodd Fairs has gained popularity among locals and tourists alike, since it was the once beloved Train Night Market Ratchada. Before Covid-19, the former market gained a lot of fans, especially the tourist crowd who loved the vintage food trucks and local fashion brands.

Bangkok night marketsImage credit: @globebangkok via Instagram

There is an event zone where you can take a look at classic cars and take some pics. It’s important to note, however, that this market will probably be on the crowded side. No matter where you walk, you’ll see long queues of people waiting in line for their items.

Image credit: @spider_traveler via Instagram

A must-try dish here is ‘Leng Zab’ from ฿200 (~USD6). Think of it as a spicy soup brewed from a rich stock of pork bones. This restaurant named Mae Klong Noodle & Leng Saap  is usually packed with customers but if you adore spicy food, try dropping by when you visit Jodd Fairs.

Getting here is very easy because the market is a 5-minute walk from MRT Rama 9. Simply get off the train at the MRT station and walk to the back of Central Plaza Rama 9, before you’ll see the familiar tentage of Jodd Fairs.

Update: Please be aware that the market will be shut down at the end of 2023 due to the end of the contract.

9. Ong Ang (คลองโอ่งอ่าง) – night walking street with stalls and vibrant murals

Strictly speaking, Ong Ang isn’t exactly a night market, but resembles an old-school night walking street. It’s conveniently located near MRT Sam Yot, and what will strike you upon entering the district is the distinct street art plastered over the walls.

Folks typically come here to get a meal at the famous street stalls or even paddle in kayaks along the canal.

Formerly, Ong Ang used to be a trading area where Chinese and Mon people sold earthen jars and pottery. Now it’s been redeveloped to be an artistic walking street where lots of people come to shop, or simply hang out.

As you stroll down the pavement adjacent to the central canal, we’re sure you’ll be blown away by the numerous skilful paintings on the walls.

The Ong Ang canal sits between both sides of the streets, in a manner that’s pretty reminiscent of Cheonggyecheon in downtown Seoul, South Korea.

Pre-pandemic, visitors were allowed to paddle a kayak through the canal, but this activity has been suspended due to Covid-19 safety concerns.

If you’d like to pay Ong Ang a visit, it will take you a 3-minute walk from MRT Sam Yot. Our top pick will be coming here by train, as it’s the most convenient, and to take a stroll once dusk falls so the weather will be cooler on your evening stroll.
