Concierge.com's insider take:
After-hours bargain hunters unearth endless treasures amid the kitsch in the night market's 35 acres of shops. Wide, covered walkways and the occasional air-conditioned boutique create a more dignified, comfortable shopping experience than the famed Chatuchak Weekend Market. Vendors here sell everything from handmade paper to custom leather golf bags, vintage lamps to edgy accessories. Palm reading, Thai massage, and the Joe Louis Puppet Theatre entertain nonshoppers. Look for innovative homeware design in the Lopburi Zone and this season's fashions in the Ayutthaya Zone. After the retail whirlwind, have dinner in the market's sprawling football field of a beer garden while watching a kitsch-tastic procession of cover bands.
Open daily 5 pm to 12 am.
