Currently for year 2022, I think one of the most famous night market in Bangkok is this Jodd Fairs Night Market at Central Plaza Grand Rama IV or nearby the Rama 9 MRT station.

Then I did a further search, only realize that this is kinda replacement of famous Ratchada Train Night Market which now known as Jodd Fairs. Jodd Fairs night market offers more than 600 food vendors ranging from restaurants, street food stands, beers  and others.

Of course we used to know those other famous night market like

I stayed not too far from this area and took taxi to this place and been here for 2 nights in a row, I just love the feeling of chilling in this huge tent and variety of beers that I can get. Beers start from 600 Baht (RM 8.50) for 1 big can. You can even chill at those some beer bars.jodd fairs mapnight market bangkok 2022

Bangkok, not only well known for shopping heaven, as they are very well known with their various kind of night market. When I pay a visit to Bangkok again at June 2014, this night market were one of a highly recommended by my friend as they are more well known to the locals as many international travelers have yet discover it. Srinakarin Train Market.

The night market were once operate an open-air bazaar set beside an abandoned railroad tracks behind JJ market and near Chatuchak area. However, the train market has since moved into a new location (Srinakarin Road) behind Seacon Square since June 2013. How the word came about whereby “Talad” means market and “Rot Fai” means train in Thai

Upon reaching the area, on the frontage does not look anything fantastic, as upon walking in, I am falling in love more with this place as its so huge. For the first time, I got excited over a night market. We were strolling from 7pm till 12am still have yet to cover the whole market.

In this market, you will be amazed with alot of local vendors selling incredible cheap and unique item from vintage collectibles, antique furniture to hippy fashion, great second hand item and Mao kitsch.

 

Train Market (2) With many sections for you to cover, first you will be greeted with their concept cafe upon walking in from the main road. Love their creativity of each concept cafe that makes it very unique.

In this huge area along with the bar, is where I rate it the bargain area. With at least 4-6 long stretch, you will find your bargaining power begins. From fashion, toiletries, accessories, local made clothes and many others that will amaze you. Price range is very cheap as some accessories range starts from 20bhat and clothes starts from 50bhat. The girls went crazy over here as there is a jean manufacturer clear their stuff here with 3 pieces of short jeans pants going off at 3 pieces at 130 bhat.

If you do visit Bangkok, I would highly recommended this night market as do prepare to walk alot and do prepare some cash as most vendors here do not take credit card. If I were to compare, this night market is much better than their famous Chatuchak Market.
