For people looking for vintage clothing, vintage bags and accessories, these markets are the best. They are also home to some of the best handicrafts and vintage accessories in Bangkok. These markets also provide a chance to try out the latest styles in Thai clothing before they make their way to you from other countries.
Sunday open markets are also great places to go window shopping and take a peek at the many workshops, boutiques, and other businesses that offer last minute deals on antiques and second-hand goods.
If you are shopping for something unique, however, it is advised to go to the traditional markets of Bangkok which remain open until the early hours of the morning. These markets also provide some of the best food in Bangkok, which is usually prepared by Thai chefs.
On any given Sunday, you will never lack for choices when shopping for anything from knick-knacks to fresh seafood.
Moving on to Chiang Mai in the far North of Thailand, if you happen to include this beautiful city in your travel plans, another rather famous area of the town is the Chiang Mai Night Bazaar, which is also known as the ‘Raffles’.
It attracts many visitors because of its wide array of interesting antiques, but it also has a lot to offer the hungry night owl who is willing to brave the crowds and get a taste of Asia’s spicy food. Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is open all night long and has no special admission price, so anyone can get in here at any time.
And if you do decide to spend a little extra, there are also some excellent restaurants serving some of the best Thai food in town.
