Train Night Market | ตลาดนัดรถไฟ (Talad Rotfai) *****

(map) Called after its former location at a train cemetery, the Train Market consists of a weekend night market 4 nights a week, with regular shops open every day except for Mondays from 4 p.m. until late.

The regular shops sell vintage furniture, lamps and collectibles in the front, followed by a covered area with a wide range of new and second-hand clothes, shoes, accessories and other small goods.

The flea market in the back focuses on second-hand and vintage stuff - both Thai and foreign imported from Europe - being sold to the local population. There are market stalls with smaller furniture and vintage goods like old clocks, movie star collections, young portraits of the royal family, and advertising signboards. Prices are reasonable, sometimes cheap. The regular market area focuses on a younger audience with similar stuff as the shops but cheaper. There's a food court, and little food shops and restaurants are everywhere.

[Srinakarin Road soi 51; open Tue-Sun 5pm-1am; facebook.com/taradrodfi; 081-8275885, 086-1267787, 081-7328778, 081-7525588]
