Suan Lum Night Bazaar
The Suan Lum Night Bazaar is opposite Lumpini Park on the corner of Rama IV and Wireless Road. It's open daily from 5:00 pm until midnight, with many places staying open later than that.
Suan Lum is a complete night out because here you'll find markets, restaurants, a beer garden and live bands.
Suan Lum is considered the pick of the markets in Bangkok and compared to its famous cousin at Chatuchak this market is cooler and cleaner and is also open every day. It has an interesting mix of market stalls, pubs and restaurants as well as a huge beer garden complete with a food court and a large stage where live bands entertain daily.
The market area has many shops selling handicraft and clothes, while others are selling packed local fruit like dried jackfruit and dried durian. Fortunately, the drying process takes away the interesting smell which usually accompanies durian! Prices quoted throughout the Night Bazaar seem on a par with Chatuchak Market but if you like to bargain, the price will be better still.
In the same area, dinner shows featuring classical Thai puppetry can be enjoyed at the internationally famous Joe Louis Puppet Theatre.
A visit to Suan Lum Night Bazaar is a different experience and will certainly allow you to sleep well when you get back to your hotel or aboard your ship.
