Rod Fai Srinakarin Night Market started out as a train railway near Chatuchak in northern Bangkok. It belongs to the real local night market and is very popular.
After being forced to close due to the BTS light rail line in 2013, it was reborn at the new site. There are more than 2,000 stalls, ranging from home appliances from the 1950s to the 1960s, and all kinds of retro vintage cars. Rod Fai Srinakarin Night Market is more suitable for free walking because it is too big. It is better to arrange at least 3-4 hours playing there. Rod Fai Srinakarin Night Market has many cheap and delicious authentic cuisines, various groceries, fashion boutiques, clothing, and various food stalls.
Rod Fai Srinakarin Night Market is divided into “market area”, “warehouse area” and “antique area”. It is a retro literary train night market that Thai locals like to visit, and they especially like taking pictures in front of vintage cars. The heavy steam industrial trains and locomotives here probably make the boys who like machinery scream. There are many places where you can take pictures. There are all kinds of vintage cars, worn-out industrial-style factories, and artistic plaster statues.
At Rod Fai Srinakarin Night Market, you can see a lot of Thai people’s attitudes towards life: sunshine, positive, hospitable, and dedication to certain things, they can practice their own skills for a long time, with several generations of long time, to carry on the food heritage.
