Pattaya Night Bazaar is a comfortable, covered and air-conditioned recreation of a Thai street market. Primarily targeting the tourist market, it is a good place to stock up on souvenirs and summer clothes without suffering the endurance test which many of the other markets in Pattaya often become.
While some of the outdoor markets in the city can get very stuffy in the heat of the day, particularly the ones with very narrow gaps between each stall, a visit to Pattaya Night Bazaar lets you get that much-needed retail fix whilst beating the heat; each of the stalls are housed in permanent structures, with a wide path between them and the whole edifice is well-lit and ventilated, making a perfectly pleasant shopping experience.

Items on sale include t-shirts, singlets, shorts, jeans, bags, luggage, sunglasses, scented soaps and other bathroom smellies, hats, scarfs, shoes, beer cosies and a wide range of other assorted souvenirs. It also houses a greater concentration of tailor’s shops than almost anywhere else in the city.
Apart from the structure which contains it, Pattaya Night Bazaar is much like any other market. The price tags – where there are any – are always very low and can be skilfully and tactfully haggled lower. The quality of the items on offer varies from impressively good to blatantly fake. The only significant difference from the other big markets in Pattaya is the shortage of food vendors here.
Although the bright signage on the front of the hangar-like building on Pattaya Second Road does claim that this is specifically a nocturnal attraction, the market is actually open for much of the day. It is also known as the “Made in Thailand Market” – which, looking at what is for sale, seems likely to be just as inaccurate!
Pattaya Night Bazaar is located just over the road from Central Festival Pattaya. It also gives you somewhere to park, if you are driving, because there is limited space for motorbikes out front, but no room for anything bigger.
