Night Markets

If you ever find yourself in Bangkok, visiting a night market is absolutely essential. Khao San Road after 6 pm has an astonishing array of vendors selling a fantastical selection of items, from incredible street food to rare and beautiful vintage items.

Floating Markets

It would be a shame to visit Bangkok, or even Thailand in general, and not experience a floating market. Although these aren’t unique to Thailand, some of the best ones can be found in this nation, and one can even say the Thai people perfected the concept.

Chatuchak Market

The Chatuchak Market is the ultimate open market experience that Thailand has to offer and consistently attracts millions of people annually. This is literally a place where you can shop till you drop.
