You will need to fly to Bangkok on Thursday and back on Sunday afternoon or evening.

Day One – Thursday

Touch down in Bangkok and check in to your hotel. Take a shower, refreshed yourself and get yourself ready with your shopping bag. Depending on flight, you could arrive in hotel in the afternoon or late afternoon so you take a short rest, an early dinner before you go shopping in the evening.

Day One  – Thursday Evening

We listed down three night markets you can visit. They are on different locations so it is quite far from one to another night market and we won’t recommend you to visit two of them in one night. You can choose one of them and do another one on Saturday evening.

There are three night markets you can visit:

1)  Suan Lum Night Bazaar

Suan Lum Night Bazaar is reopened after they closed five years ago. There are now located at Ratchadaphisek with a brand new shopping mall. The good news is they open every night but the bad news is the shops are still not fully occupied yet. However, they are still filling up soon and they will be one of the top night bazaars in Bangkok.

How to go to Suan Lum Night Bazaar in Bangkok?

MRT (Subway):

The easiest way is by MRT (Subway). You have to stop at Lat Phrao MRT Station and Exit at Exit One. Turn right after the exit and you will see the Suan Lum Night Bazaar night market as well as the hotel and the big shopping mall. Full review will come soon.

Suan Lum Night Bazaar Address:

5 Ratchadaphisek Road, Chom Phon, Chatuchak, Bangkok 10900, Thailand

2) Talad Rot Fad Srinakarin

This is the original Talad Rod Fai market but this is not the original location. The original location is by the train tracks near Chatuchak Market and that’s how they got their name “train market”. They had to relocate in 2013 due to the expansion of the BTS Skytrain and it moves to Srinakarin. The market gain lots of popularity due to its uniqueness and that’s why when it moves to Srinakarin, there are many locals and tourists visited the market.

Srinakarin is located at north east of the city and it is not near the BTS Skytrain stations or MRT Subway stations. It is located behind Seacon Square Srinakarin,one of the largest shopping malls in Bangkok.

Talad Rot Fad Srinakarin is extremely popular with locals and tourists as it is a huge night market and it offers a huge variety of fashion, food as well as antique items. The downside is it is far from the city and you need to take a taxi to visit this night market.

How to go to Talad Rot Fad Srinakarin Train Market

From On Nut BTS station, take a taxi to reach the Seacon Square. If not mistaken, it should be around 20 minutes and the taxi fare is around 100 Baht. The taxi will stop you at the opposite of the Seacon Square and you need to take the pedestrian bridge to cross over.

You can also order Uber or GrabCar from the On Nut BTS Station and also from Seacon Square.

Talad Rot Fad Srinakarin Train Market Opening Hours:

Thursdays to Sundays – 5:00pm to 1:00am

Talad Rot Fad Srinakarin Train Market Address:

Soi Srinakarin 51, Srinakarin Rd.,

Nongbon, Prawet, Bangkok 10250

3) Talad Rod Fai Train Market 2 at Ratchada Bangkok

The market is open from Thursday to Sunday, from 5pm till 1am but I recommend you to come around 7 to 8 pm, as they will take some time to open their stalls from 5 pm. The best way to reach here is via MRT at Thailand Cultural Centre MRT Station.

For convenience, I will prefer to visit Talad Rod Fai 2 Market even though it is smaller. The market is a cool place to visit as it is cooler at night and there are plenty of things to shop. You can bargain in this market but most of the items are quite reasonable. The variety of the food is better than Talad Rod Fai market. Otherwise, you can eat the fast food at The Esplanade.

How to go to Talad Rod Fai Market 2:

Take MRT to Thailand Cultural Centre MRT Station. Take Exit no 3 and take left turn and you will see the Esplanade building. The Talad Rod Fai Market 2 is behind Esplanade.

Day Two – Friday

Take your breakfast in the hotel or somewhere nearby, start charging your battery as you will go shop like mad today. There will be plenty of walking on the second day.

Day Two – Friday Morning

Union Mall

Start shopping at Union Mall first and it can be easily accessible via the MRT Subway. This shopping mall is small but it has many unique boutique stalls. This mall caters to the younger crowd and it is not as busy like the other popular shopping mall. The design here is good for teenager, young working adults and you can find many beautiful evening and wedding dresses here at reasonable price.

How to go to Union Mall

The best way to visit Union Mall is via MRT (Subway). Stop at MRT Phahon Yothin and the mall is just next to Exit 5.

Union Mall Address:

54 ซอย 1 Chom Phon, Chatuchak, Bangkok 10900, Thailand

Day Two – Friday Afternoon

Chatuchak Weekend Market

Chatuchak the largest weekend market in the world is just a stone throw away from Union Mall. You can spend the whole afternoon shopping in Chatuchak or you can also visit JJ Mall for resting. It takes days to discover the whole Chatuchak but visiting your desire section will probably takes hours. What we love about Chatuchak is their local designer boutique shops. It is probably slightly expensive but you get the best in terms of design and quality.

Day Two – Friday Evening

1) Chatuchak Friday Night Market

This is a brand new night market in Chatuchak and you don’t even need to move out of Chatuchak. Continue your shopping spree in Chatuchak Friday Night Market and this is not the last shopping place on Friday.

2) JJ Green Night Market

Walk across the road and you will see a pleasant night market call JJ Green Night Market. This is small night market that you can find some real good deals as well as many good food stalls here.

3) Hua Mum Night Market

Take a taxi and you can visit Hua Mum Night Market in Lat Phrao area which is not far from Chatuchak. This is a daily night market and we discovered it with AroiMakMak.com early this year. The market is quite nice to walk around and since you are in this area why not take a trip down to Hua Mum Nigh Market.

How to go to Hua Muum Market Lat Phrao?

Exit in MRT Lat Phrao and take a taxi to Hua Muum Market. You also can take a taxi from Chatuchak. Tell the taxi driver it is near The Walk Kaset Nawamin for easier reference.

4) Talad Rod Fai 3 Kaset Nawamin

Further down the road is Talad Rod Fai Market 3 or Train Night Market 3, the latest train night market in Bangkok. It is not as huge as Talad Rod Fai Market 1 and similar in size with Talad Rod Fai Market 2. Like we said, since you are in Lat Phrao why not taking a taxi and complete your shopping spree at Talad Rod Fai Market 3?

How to go to Talad Rod Fai 3 Kaset Nawamin

The nearest train station is MRT Lat Phrao and you can take a taxi from there. You can also take taxi from the city but it will cost more. Remember this is the latest Talad Rod Fai Market so many people still do not know about this place.

Day Three – Saturday

Enjoy your morning in the hotel with breakfast. Friday was heavy with shopping so you might need to pack so you know how much luggage space you left for Saturday and Sunday. Just in case you have no more space in your luggage, just go and buy a new one! It is Saturday and let’s go shopping again, don’t stop the music!

Day Three – Saturday Afternoon

1) Pratunam Wholesale Market

Start your afternoon walking and shopping at Pratunam Market. Make sure you know you know your way in and out so you won’t get lost in the market. Too much shopping will makes you lost your directions. This is a wholesale market so you need to buy at least three items to get the wholesale price. Get your shopping bag / trolley ready and time for a shopping spree.

How to go to Pratunam Wholesale Market

The best way to get to Pratunam Wholesale Market is by taxi.

Pratunam Wholesale Market Location:

2) Platinum Wholesale Shopping Mall

Platinum Fashion Mall is the wholesale shopping haven for many shoppers, traders and tourists. Located in Pratunam, opposite Amari Watergate Hotel and the Pratunam Wholesale Market, Platinum Fashion Mall is a gigantic six storey shopping complex.

Plenty to shop here and you probably take more than an afternoon here. Remember this is a wholesale market so you need to purchase three items and above for the best deals. You can continue shopping here until they close at 7pm after shopping in Pratunam Wholesale Market.

Day Three – Saturday Evening

The evening schedule is the same with the Thursday evening schedule. If you visited one of the night markets, you can visit either one of the two we recommended. The location of three night markets is quite a distant from one to another so it doesn’t make sense to visit two night markets at one night.

There are three night markets you can visit:

1)  Suan Lum Night Bazaar

Suan Lum Night Bazaar is reopened after they closed five years ago. There are now located at Ratchadaphisek with a brand new shopping mall.
