Suan Lum Night Bazaar’s legendary return in midtown Bangkok

Home »  Neighborhoods »  Suan Lum Night Bazaar’s legendary return in midtown Bangkok

Another reason why Ratchada midtown is going to be so cool again.

Do you remember that outdoor train market that was on the vacant parking lot at the Ratchada-Ladprao corner?  It used to sell vintage collectibles, opened only at night, and was a great place to bring a date.

If you do – you might also recall the Suan Lum Night Bazaar in Lumpini – Bangkok’s biggest night bazaar which also disappeared at around the same time.

It’s been 5 years since they both went missing.  What’s the link between the mysterious disappearances of these two legendary night markets?

They’re both making a legendary return – as one in the same!

  • Who:  The Suan Lum Night Bazaar
  • Stage:  The long strip of land where the Ratchada-Ladprao train market used to be
  • Audience:  Mid-town Ratchada folk who’ve been waiting patiently for all the heavy condominium development and investment in the area to finally pay off
  • When:  November 25, 2015

The story goes – Suan Lum Night Bazaar, the largest of its kind in Bangkok, ran out on its 10 year lease on a 120-acre plot of land in Lumpini and acquired the space on the Ratchada-Ladprao intersection where the train market used to be.  Beginning construction in 2010, the new Suan Lum Night Bazaar’s multi-building complex is complete and ready to open end of November this year!
