Talad Rot Fai means Train Market in Thai
Talad Rot Fai history goes back to the original train market near Chatuchak market in the north of Bangkok. This disused piece of land was used as a train station many years ago and turned into a night market, featuring old storage warehouses and an actual train line and carriages.
Talad Rod Fai Is A Great Mix With The Local Thais
The Talad Rod Fai market opens from Tuesday to Sunday evenings 6 pm – Midnight and is a great place to mix with the locals, eat a huge variety of food, drink beers and shop at the many stalls. Talad Rot Fai Ratchada is situated just behind Esplanade shopping mall and a 5 min walk from MRT station Thailand Cultural Center.
Talad Rot Fai is split into sections, with a big food area selling many delicious snacks and meals. Next to that is a shopping area with hundreds of small stalls from local vendors selling everything from clothes to gadgets, fashion accessories and gifts. On the outside of the food and shopping areas are many bars, some built inside buildings with vintage décor and artifacts and some housed in shipping containers providing a cool and funky place to drink and socialize with friends. There are also pop up bars in VW camper vans and an assortment of different bars to choose from. The music is loud at many venues, and popular with hipster local Thais, bikers and tourists that are in the know. A great place to visit if you are looking for an authentic Thai experience mixing with local people who enjoy hanging out in the evenings.
Talad Rot Fai From Train Station to Night Market
This disused piece of land was used as a train station many years ago and turned into a night market, featuring old storage warehouses and an actual train line and carriages. Since the closure due to development a couple of years ago the market has moved to two new spaces, one being Srinakarin in the suburbs of Bangkok and now the much easier to reach the area of Ratchada just on the outskirts of the center of the city.
Esplanade Thailand is Right Upfront Talad Rot Fai
Esplanade Shopping Center is located right in front of the market. Esplanade is easy to access from the Talad Rot Fai Train market. Esplanade is a popular hangout spot for students and starters.
