One of the best ways to soak up Bangkok feel is spending the night at flea markets. Browsing around among live music, good smell of street food after dark is a must. There are a number of flea markets across the city, and the outstanding one near Novotel Bangkok IMPACT is Owl Night Market. Drive for half an hour from the hotel, you will find a carnival-like atmosphere with an endless array.
Talad Nokhook or Owl Night Market offers everything from book to broccoli. It is not just a saying for this quirky flea market. This open-air mall is down to earth and local as it gets. A visit to Nonthaburi is remiss without a hop to this charming and bizarre market at night.
The market sits opposite to Central Plaza Rattanathibet. The atmosphere is quite laid-back. During daytime, the mall can provide some cool and shade before tackling the large night market with Multicolor tents. Shopaholic may be thrilled for an endless rows of attracting items. You can find everything from fashion to the most vintage home decoration. Handicraft, book, used cloth and handbag. Prepare to hunt through piles and you may uncover hidden gems. This is also a place to find cheap treasures as well as items that can be found in normal Thai markets. To sum up, there are almost everything you could imagine.
With the unbeatable price, even the smallest budget can go very far. Everything here is cheaper than Bangkok’s city night markets! Strolling through stall-after-stall, visitors can find Thai snacks at only THB 10. Unlike Chatuchak or Rotfai markets, price of food is cheap. There are a lot of street food vendors and nice bars for you to enjoy all night. Another highlight is the water slide. Owl Night Market is ideal for the adventurous visitor looking for an experience among the locals.
Most stalls and shops are fully set up around 7 pm. The flea market opens on Fridays and Saturdays. It operates the whole night until 10 am in the next day. The market buzzes with energy all night long. The easiest way to get to this quirky area is to ask our friendly concierge team. Owl Night Market does not show up on the map and everyone only knows it by its Thai name ‘ตลาดนกฮูก เลี่ยงเมืองนนท์’. A taxi from the hotel is around 30 minutes.
