Train Night Market, Bangkok

4.1
#31 of 416 in Shopping in Bangkok
A popular attraction for the savvy shopper, Train Night Market is not as well-known as some of the capital's larger markets, but the wide variety of items on sale make this an intriguing if off-the-beaten-path option. The stalls at this open-air bazaar stock a selection of goods ranging from retro memorabilia, vintage collectibles, and a selection of items on the budget-friendly end of the scale. Leave plenty of time for the food stalls, where you can taste some authentic Thai specialties before wandering around the rest of the market.

  • 2 years ago still an insider tip and really great market (see my first feedback 2 years ago). Now things change quickly sometimes, in this case very quickly! For Khao Niow Mamuang (mango with glutiny and coconut sauce) there were actually prices with 150 baht instead of usually 60-80 baht. Likewise Mu Ping (grilled pork pies) for a proud 30 baht/piece instead of 10-12 baht. Obviously, these prices are actually paid. But there are also at least a few food stalls with normal prices. Compared to 3 years ago, the market is now almost exclusively visited by Chinese who invade in large tour groups. The market has adapted, so typical Thai dishes are actually modified for the Chinese taste in dishes that don't actually exist. Anyone who wants to see Chinese food behavior in almost extreme form with everything that goes with it is right here. Anyone who already knows this or even in China knew what I meant. Otherwise fingers away from this market, see heading. Wasted time, we searched for the distance after 30 minutes deeply disappointed. There is a lot going on there, but this market represents Thailand only about as much as St. Pauli Germany, namely not at all. Too bad, was once great here.

  • Because there are a lot of directions written, I omit it. A large number of Chinese people leave the station! I'm coming on tour. I decided it was dangerous to walk in the crowded market with my children, so I took only a picture from the parking lot of the Esplanade and went back (laughs) There are a lot of restaurants though it is considerably crowded in the Esplanade. There is a way of not going to the market only by taking a photograph, too. It's cool.
