Bangkok is a shopaholics paradise and we love how this city has a plethora of shopping spots to satiate our never-ending love for shopping.
If you’re sick of the usual touristy markets like Chatuchak and Talad Neon, you can try paying a visit to Huai Khwang Night Market. This market is less frequented by tourists so you get to shop like a local and have a different night market experience altogether.
Huai Khwang Night Market is just a short walk away from Huai Khwang MRT station, which makes it very convenient and accessible.
Do not expect rows and rows of tented stalls like what you usually see at night markets in Bangkok; the stalls here are mostly located within buildings along a long winding road and to us, it seemed more like a row of shophouses that function like night market stalls.
Here, you can find different stalls selling a variety of things such as clothes, accessories, shoes, beauty products and random knick-knacks. You can also get your hair and nails done at one of the many beauty salons that line the streets.
Take a break from all that shopping by indulging in some scrumptious food. Huai Khwang Night Market is home to plenty of both street stalls and restaurants that are open till the wee hours of the morning, so you’ll always have something to satisfy your hunger.
While it is an interesting place to check out if you have time, we don’t feel like it is a must-visit unless you want to experience what a more local market feels like. It has everything that your usual night market has and we honestly did not find this as exciting as the other night markets we have visited.
If you don’t have much time and you only can visit one or two markets, we recommend that you check out Talad Rot Fai Srinakarin or Hua Mum Night Market instead.
