Also known as Talad Dek Neaw ("hipsters" market), this market, formerly located in an old train depot, has moved across the city behind Seacon Square, and become the talk of the town. It takes place only on Wednesdays and weekends, and while the shopping starts at 4 pm, it really doesn't liven up until the evening, when hundreds of vendors set up stalls selling antiques, collectibles, and tons of retro items, currently a huge fad in Thailand. There are over 2000 stalls here, and the biggest collection of antiques to be found in Thailand. There are also lots of food stalls and impromptu tricked out VW bus bars, offering cheap cocktails and beer, and there are several fancier bars, located in antique shops, which feature live music amidst the great ambiance.
- Best Shopping: "Talad Rot Fai is located at Sri Nakharin Soi 51, behind Seacon Square. Either take a taxi here from the On Nut BTS Skytrain station or take the white songthaew collective pickup truck which runs all the way up Sukhumvit Soi 77 (On Nut) to Seacon Square."
- Recommended as Best Shopping Because: For a novel Bangkok experience and its biggest antique market, you must visit Talad Rot Fai.
