Talad Rod Fai (translated as ‘train market’)is an authentic open-air bazaar, night market, and popular hangout with the city’s hip and stylish. There are two Rod Fai markets, one located on Srinakarinsoi 51, and the other is in the Ratchada area.
The markets are not your typical experience, however. They display items from antique furniture to fashion to an incredible array of vintage collectibles and memorabilia from all over the world. For example, you might find a pristine 1950’s Cadillac next to old leather jackets, old school cameras,vintage children’s toys that make you nostalgic and French chandeliers.
Shopping is a great part of the Rod Fai market experience, but do not forget to taste the street food there! The market is filled with fried noodle stalls, som tam shops, barbecue stands with sizzling meats, ice cream parlors, shwarma, coffee shops and even bars serving alcoholic beverages. Food trucks, barber shops, and colorful tents help to give this market a varied and colorful vibe. It is a great place to sit and relax with a drink and enjoy the live bands with friends.
