Where to Find Thai Markets in Bangkok

Markets in Bangkok offer fascinating shopping experiences for bargain hunters, with alleys after alleys of shops selling things like one-off fashion accessories, fresh flowers, and agricultural produce. These markets also let you sample the kind of food you won't find in most restaurants.

Unlike shopping malls, prices at Thai markets aren’t fixed, so you can always have a go at bargaining for the best possible price you want to pay. Just remember to do it politely and with a sense of humour. Below is our guide to some great markets in Bangkok.
