Talat Rot Fai

Market in Bangkok

The emphasis at this night market is on the retro, from vintage clothes to kitschy antiques. And with stalls and food trucks, VW-van-based bars, land-bound pubs and even a few hipster barber shops, it’s also much more than just a shopping destination.

If this isn't enough vintage for you, consider the recently opened and slightly smaller (yet more convenient to reach) Talat Rot Fai 2, on Th Ratchadaphisek. To get here, take the MRT to Thailand Cultural Centre and walk through the Esplanade mall.
