Talad Rot Fai

Also known as Talad Dek Naew.

Two Siamese Cats………


Located on a used to be empty lot and warehouses owned by the State Railway of Thailand at Kampheang Phet. It started from the idea by the owners of Roy’s Antique to  have an antique flea market free of charge to anybody who wants to sell their wares. At first it didn’t kick off, until they decided to charge a rental fee and since then it became a crowded night market every Saturday and Sunday night.

To get there, take the MRT and the closest station is Kampheang Phet, which is also the MRT station to the Chatuchak (JJ) Weekend Market. Take Exit 1 and turn right on Th Kampheang Phet (left will be towards JJ Market), you will pass by a few night clubs and also Roy’s Antique shop, continue walking until you hit the “night market”. (note: don’t take the BTS, the closest station Mo Chit is quite far, unless you don’t mind walking quite a distance in the dark)

jam session @ talad rot fai

The front lot are mostly “antique” or junk (you have to decide on this) stalls, while at the back is where the action really is. Like any other night market in Thailand, food and drinks are pretty much available, some of them, are located cabins, which are nice to sit, drink and watch the world goes by. When I made my visit, one of the “drink” cabin which also sells precussions equipment, had an impromptu jam session when ever there is enough people to participate.
