Everyone loves to shop, and we’ve already spoken about our list of the best markets in Bangkok that you should definitely take a trip to. But what are the best night markets in Bangkok? Just because the sun has gone down, doesn’t mean you need to stop treating yourself. Just be prepared to book your flight to Bangkok because these markets are simply stunning!
Rot Fai Market, Srinakarin
From above or at a distance, the Rot Fai Market is a vibrant, glowing colourful night market in Bangkok that you can expect to find many different things here. It is well known for being large in size and having many retro memorabilia for sale. You can expect to find a variety of stands selling all sorts of different things but is split into three: fashion and clothes, rare collectibles from all over the world and delicious locally made snacks.
JJ Green is one of the best night markets in Bangkok – it doubles up as a vintage flea market and a local drinking hangout. Whether you wish to shop or enjoy the company of the locals, JJ Green is the place to be when the sun goes down. It is a very laid back market which proves popular with those looking to shop at ease rather than a bigger market similar to Rot Fai Market.
Wang Lang Market
Wang Lang Market is by far the best night market in Bangkok to try some of the most delicious local delicacies. We recommend having a quick wander around first and then making your plan of action of eating your way out. There are sweets, small snacks and many more courses for you to try. Ask the locals what they recommend trying and head for that stand to really indulge in some traditional foods. Click here for more information.
