Bangkok Night Markets To Visit
Going to Bangkok is like entering a world where time is non-existent and fun is everlasting – especially with night markets at every corner! Whether you’re on the hunt for some mouthwatering street food, affordable and stylish clothes, or looking to have a fun night out – there’s a Bangkok night market out there for you!
Some night markets might be a little far from each other so you better arm yourself with the handy BTS One Day Pass to help you hop on from one market to another. And for a hassle-free Bangkok trip, get yourself a 4G SIM Card to stay connected wherever you go.
