Rot Fai Market Ratchada

If you enjoy diversity in shopping and open air markets, Rot Fai Market on Ratchada is the place for you. Located near the Culture Center MRT, this night market is well worth a visit. Shop in a convivial environment, surrounded by antiques, street food, clothes and knick-knacks; stroll through rows and rows of stalls while savoring the atmosphere and vibrant colors of the market.

A few tips for your shopping comfort:

  • Wear comfortable and light-colored cotton clothes, airy ones especially. Flea markets in Bangkok are pretty hot in the summer months, so a floppy hat to shield you from the strong Bangkok sun will be most convenient. Wear comfortable flat shoes for all that walking, and don’t wear any of your expensive jewelry or branded bags.
  • Be friendly but alert. Thai vendors are generally very friendly and helpful that you get encouraged into buying all sorts of stuff. But like any flea market, be very careful also of potential pickpockets.
  • Bargain gently. Bargaining is an art, so they say, so be prepared to bargain only what you can afford to pay. Intuitively, you will know when it’s the right price when the seller doesn’t feel that she has been cheated, and you are quite happy with the price you have agreed upon for the item. Compare prices among the stalls to get the best bargains.

Open from 18:00 to 24:00, Thursday to Sunday, the new Rot Fai Market Ratchada is so popular with Thai people that prices are lower than you might find in Chatuchak Market (although genuine antiques and one-off vintage items are rarely cheap).

It is easy to find Rot Fai Market Ratchada as it is located directly behind Cultural Centre MRT Underground Station. If you are taking a taxi, just inform our concierge of your destination and he will take care of the rest.
