Talat Rot Fai Srinakharin


The emphasis at this night market is on the retro, from vintage clothes to kitschy antiques. With stalls and food trucks, van-based bars, land-bound pubs and even a few hipster barber shops, it’s also much more than just a shopping destination. Not to be confused with the other Talat Rot Fai on Ratchadaphisek, much more accessible than this outpost.
