Went there in the morning. It's cool to see the train crossing those stalls but honestly speaking, there are just too much tourists flooding there with their camera standing by when the train approach. The market was sheltered and those who are above 1.8m tall will have difficulty walking in. No much sovereign to buy since most of them are selling raw foods(it is a market anyway).

While this night market is far from BKK City Centre, the wide varieties of street food, chillax pubs and interesting vintage finds made it all worthwhile. We took BTS to Udom Suk and transferred to a metered taxi which took us to Seacom Square for 60 bahts. It's a huge place with plenty to explore and for those who loves photography, this place is for you.

Most taxi drivers prefers to drop passengers outside or opposite Seacom Square as the road into the market can be very congested. Don't worry about that as all you need to look out for is a shop with many tyres and rims. Take the side road in and you'll arrive at the market.

The train market was honestly the coolest thing ever. The fact the all these verndors sit literally on the tracks selling fish and fruit and when the train is coming - it sounds off at 5 mins prior to the train arriving - everyone rolls up moves back stops business and waits for the train to come through only inches from where you are standing. Becareful to get off the tracks, daily it seems a tourist is unaware of the train and stands on the tracks until someone screams for them to move! :) Fun place and great ice coffee at the corner stand in front of the train station!

FIrst of all, for those who knew the original "Talad Rot Fai", this was situated back near to the Chatuchak week-end market. It had a special atmosphere due to being situated near to former railways (hence its name of railways market).

Right now, it is a market frequented mainly by Thai teenagers, with a first section devolved to stalls selling everything from clothes to gadgets.

A second section is made of vintage shops which host "antiques" (for Thais, "antiques", means 1960's already). Although there is much less atmosphere than in the previous place, this setting is more widely opened and provides more space for the shops. Some gems to be found there, both in terms of "antiques" as in terms of clothes.

To get there, you must advise your taxi to go to Seacon Square. If you are driving, then you may park for free at Seacon mall, but be aware the mall's parking closes at 9.30.
