The Vintage Theme Night Market in Bangkok

overcast 29 °C

There was this saying that Bangkok is a South East Asian city that never sleeps. Well, judging from from the traffic flow, the people who move and traversing around the city, entertainment activities, food joints that operated as street food vendors as well as restaurants, cafes and night markets that operated well beyond the wee hours, the saying was indeed so true. Bangkok is definitely one of the amazing South East Asia city, probably the most amazing within the region.


Over the more than 10 years of my travel to Bangkok, I have been to some of the very interesting, awesome, astonishing and stunning places that offer phenomenal and unbelievable travel experience of my life. There were so many markets in Bangkok that provide holidaymakers and travellers huge shopping options. These markets include the floating markets, one of the most notable being Damnoen Saduak Floating market usually offering exciting Thai food experience coupled with some natural sightseeing, the weekend markets such Chatuchak Weekend Market offering enormous consumer products and souvenirs as well as vast Thai street food, food market such as Talad Or Tor Kor which has an amazing variety of fresh seafood, vegetables, fruits and also Thai street food choices and last but not least the night markets which just like the weekend markets, also offer huge selections of street food, consumer goods, restaurants dining and drinking experience.


One of the remarkable night market that Bangkok has to offer was Talad Rod Fai Srinakarin, or literally known as Srinakarin Train Market. Originally located at the Chatuchak Weekend Market site, which has railway tracks that run next to the market of which how the market derived its name from, Talad Rod Fai has been moved to the current location in Srinakarin adjacent to the Seacon Square shopping mall, which was away from the usual tourist hub of Bangkok.


The theme for this distinctive night market was surprisingly nothing about the train, though some of the old trains complete with a locomotive were seen placed at one section of the market. Visitors to Talad Rod Fai Srinakarin would be in for a captivating affair for being engaged into the vintage theme brought about within the night market which offer some of the dazzling oldies feel while traversing the market. Dozens of vintage cars and other old vehicles were being displayed within several sections of the market. Some restaurants, consumer goods vendors and antique shops were operating from warehouse designed outlets setup within the night market area.



The night market was divided into several sections outlining the different experience for visitors to enjoy the night out at the market including dining both street food and restaurant style, entertainment and beer drinking outing, shopping as well as photography. So many things to do within one night market and definitely Talad Rod Fai Srinakarin is the never to be missed night market while holidaying in Bangkok.
