One of the largest and most atmospheric night markets in the city, Ratchada Night Bazaar makes a great alternative to boozy Bangkok nights. Arrive around midnight to see it in full swing, when it will be bustling with locals and full to bursting with vintage knickknacks, quirky clothing and cute accessories. As you’d expect from a Bangkok market, you’ll find everything from retro cars to jewelery to furniture, books and baby rabbits.

Visited many night bazaars while in Bangkok and this has the 'BEST GRILLED RED SNAPPER!' Only 200 Bahts (US$6 ) for medium fish or 250 Bahts for Large. Meat was succulent and grilled right in front of you . If you are looking for good street food, this place offers the best variety .

Entertaining with all the music, light and commotion. Not that much to buy for an adult man, but my son managed to get an excellent street hair cut and the family women found some stuff of course... Sky train to Asok and then switch to the MRT.

Great night market that caters to anyone and everyone! Typical night market fare, wonderful food, live music, cheap drinks!! This place has it all... Best of all it is a short MRT ride from anywhere in the city.

Our Thai friend brought us to this new "train night market". It is conveniently situated behind the Thailand Cultural Centre, accessible via the subway. It has countless foodstalls and quite a good number of stalls selling clothings, souvenirs, etc. There're also a number pubs with live bands. Good mix of food, drinks and shopping. Our family with children enjoyed our... More

The night market was packed with people and food! All kind of food was being served and you could just literally buy and eat on the spot. The famous 10 person super huge portion of seafood tom yam noodle is definitely a must try if you are there with lots of friends. A must visit!

All small shops are similar. Nothing interesting or cultural staff for tourists. There is also bad smell when you step the bazaar. Do not waste your time!

This was a bit overwhelming for me. They sell everything including animals and I didn't like seeing that aspect. Overall, it is huge and time consuming for sure. I'm glad I went, but I probably do not need to do that again!

I was staying at a nearby hotel so decided to walk there. Night market is 1min walk from the subway. Half of it is selling food. The other half sells mainly clothes, handphone accessories, ladies accessories. Many are repeated. Each stall is small and thus not much variety. There are stalls doing manicure, eyebrow design and fake tattoos. I took... More

We went here on recomendation from Thai friends and it is truly a cool place The food is maybe not the best but very affordable, desert was excellent though. There are many cool places to visits and interesting locally designed vendors and small hole in the wall bars. Check their Facebook page for when there is Swap Meet or concerts,... More
