Artbox

Artbox Bangkok is a cool new pop-up market with a difference: the stalls are housed in giant metal shipping containers which can be moved around the city. It’s currently on Sukhumvit road, next to Bejasiri park. Talking about differentiation of the market among others, the stuff here is still cheap, but there is more of a focus on local designers, vintage fashion, handmade accessories, funky gadgets and hip home décor items.

Train Market, Ratchada

“Train” means “Rod Fai” in Thai. The market was first located at an old train station by Kampangpaetch area that’s how they come up with such a name even the location has been changed but the amosphere still remains. The train market has its own unique sytle. Most of the vendors are young and passionate, a variety of handmade items are displayed and they sell it in a very individualistic way. Another main merchandise is a second hand stuff with great quality and at a very low price. The market is open Thu-Sat from 6pm-12 pm.
