Train Night Market Ratchada

Train Night Market Ratchada

Train Night Market Ratchada, also known as Rot Fai Market, is a flea market with four sections: Food, Bars, Shopping and Activities. The market is known for vintage and vintage items, with everything offered at reasonable prices. Go hungry at the many food vendors serving fried insects, seafood and other varieties. The Train Night Market Ratchada is divided into food, drink and shopping areas. Although Ratchada Market is known for its endless shopping and food stalls, it is also your destination for souvenir and jewelry shopping.

With affordable items on the shelves, Train Night Market Ratchada stalls have an old-fashioned vibe. They keep that vibe going with live music like Speakerbox and DJs like Sorry; I’m Gay and Dot Box performing in the perfect string of lights.

What are the opening times of the Ratchada Train Night Market?

The Ratchada Train Market is open daily from 5:30 pm to 1 am. The market is bustling on Fridays and Saturdays. It is possible to enter the night market from the Ratchada train at five o’clock, but many shops are still closed. During the weekday, many students who have finished school nearby rush through the market to buy something to eat, which is why some shops open earlier. We recommend visiting the market after the sun has set at half past six.

From then on, all the shops are open, and the atmosphere is much better. On weekends, the market is much busier from the start. Because many bars offer great promotions at the market opening, these promotions are also available on weekdays. Still, as mentioned, the Ratchada Train Night Market is much quieter on weekdays than on weekends.

How to get to Ratchada Train Market?

You can easily access Ratchada Train Market by MRT (subway) as MRT Thailand Cultural Center is next door. This is the best and most convenient way to get to the Ratchada Train Night Market. If you have other plans for the evening, this is also the best way to get back downtown or to your hotel. Finding a cab at night after visiting the Ratchada Train Night Market is just a headache. Due to the market’s popularity, the road next to it (Ratchadaphisek Road) is prone to congestion, so public transport is the best option.

Tips for Visitors:

  • Being a flea market, the Train Night Market Ratchada is sure to get crowded and claustrophobic. Therefore, visiting it before or after is advisable to avoid the endless crowds. 
  • The market is also easily accessible via the MRT. A short one-minute walk from the train station brings you to the Ratchada Train Night Market.
  • Visiting the market in the off-season is recommended to avoid tourist traffic.
