Owner description: Visitors flock to the Train Night Market not only for its excellent selection of antique and vintage goods sold at very cheap prices, but also for the delectable Thai street food on offer.

Without the train, this would probably be just another good local market. My rating comes from the authenticity of the market - I remember seeing much more food and locals than souvenirs and tourists - and how the market is directly on the train tracks. When the train arrives, all of the stalls on the market have to move to accommodate the train. Not sure how common this is, but I thought it was a cool experience and everyone (locals and tourists) seemed excited to see the train. Depending on the season, definitely try the fresh fruit.

This was my favorite market in all of the 3 countries I visited in Asia. This is far from being a tourist market so don’t expect to see any souvenirs here. You will find fish, meat, veggies, and various other foods sold by locals to locals here. That’s not what draws tourists here (although you are welcome to sample some of the local eats as you browse the stalls and wait for the train) . The market is literally on the train tracks. 5 minutes before the train pulls into the station a bells sounds warning everyone. Once the bells sounds the stall owners start pulling their things off the track and everyone stands next to the tracks. Moments later the train pulls through clearing the people and the goods for sale by inches. It was an AMAZING experience to be apart of. If you are in Bangkok it is a MUST SEE.

Time is the essence of all success! Fancy fancy! Amazing how the tent retracts when the train arrives. Tried the strawberry juice here. So nice in the hot weather with the sweet cold juice flowing down the throat.

This is one of the better markets I have been to, nothing in the way of souvenirs, but a true market full of fruit and veg, with all the wonderful colours and smells with all fish frogs andanything you can think of, most of it still alive, set out along the tracks of the railway, so all the market stalls retract their shades and move some of their wares to let the train through

We are a couple from new zealand staying at an airbnb apartment a short bus ride away and stumbled upon this. What a find! After enjoying the air con and cheap movies of the two malls its right in between, (the massive Seacon Square and Paradise Malls) this was a pleasant (but rather hot) change. All sorts of retro and vintage (and a few not so) things for sale from the supreme upper end (and likely not all a bargain) cool lighting, denim, sneakers galore, vintage cycles and Vespas, war time memorabilia, old jewellery, ET stuffed toys, and a checked shirt enthusiast's paradise. You name it basically. Think the size of a massive supermarket with open air bars and food stalls too, and a Cat Cafe where you can enjoy an iced coffee with a cat on your knee. Very clean and a fun thing to do. There was a shop called 'She has a Beard- vintage clothing and work style' that says it all really. Random! An interesting way to spend Sunday night. Check the talatrotfai website for the new address, east Bangkok in Bang Na area. A good area to stay in by the way if you want to avoid other tourists but still be easy bis ride to sky train.
