Behind Seacon Square, there lies a massive market full of opportunities to discover. Srinagarindra Train Night Market is a huge open-air market that offers a variety of things to purchase for curious customers.

As there are items that exist in other markets already such as food and snacks, clothing, and souvenirs, This market’s specialty lies in its vintage and hotrod areas.

Catering to a more local Thai taste, Srinagarindra offers a more different and authentic look into Thai life that would not be found in its sibling markets such as the Ratchada market and Jodd fairs.

If anything, the lack of tourists is one of the major contributors to the closing of the Ratchada market in 2021 where it would reopen at “The One Ratchada” in 2022. With that, this market has staying power and there should not be concern about it closing soon.
