Train Night Market , The New Style of Night Market You must Visit.

            We cannot deny that night market is becoming a new trend for Thai people. This includes both the vendors in the market and the visitors especially teenagers and working age. Night market gives choices for students and adults that are working on daytime to walk and shop on their free time. The selling points of the night market are the lights, colors, music, and chilling kind of bars that you can enjoy and meet your friends or shopaholics can enjoy the best of their time from these hundreds of stalls. Train night market or in Thai; Talad Rodfai (Talad Nud Suan Rodfai) can be translated in to Train (Rodfai) Market (Talad). It has now become one of the most popular night markets in Bangkok.  In the very beginning, Train night market grew rapidly. The tourists and the night shopaholics were amazed by its charming antique items, the amazing furniture and the equipment at the location, and plus the intention of the market owner who wants to make this market as a vintage style market. The unique style of this market attracts a huge number of people who are into nightlife and even celebrities, and actors. Accordingly, this gave the night market a big hit and turned into a must visit place.

 

            Let’s start briefly about how it became Train night market. At first the market was located in Suan Chatuchak near the train station and the market was becoming popular but then the market at Chatuchak has to shut down because the train institution wanted their place back. So the market was moved to Pravet, on the Srinakarin Rd. The owner’s intention of a vintage style night market is still clear in his mind. He made the new Train night market about many million baht. It was a very big investing. And if you ask that “Does the vintage style still exist in the Talad Rodfai?”  The answer is yes. The Train night market still has the vintage and antique products about 40% of the market.

 

            Recently, there are three 3 Train night markets which are at Srinakarin Rd, Ratchada Rd and Kaset Nawamin Rd. The owner is willing to set up about 5 branches which another two places are still in the process of choosing the suitable location and still in the same concept of vintage. This is a great place for the photogenic to snap there impressing photos in no limit with the cool settings and vintage furniture. The signature of Train night markets is their antique products. This is a good place for the antique lovers to look around and bargain the price as much as they want. Moreover, if you are walking around and then feel hungry, at the Srinakarin branch has a food zone for you with many yummy food shops.
