The Sansiri Winter Market really is a holiday style market, a big open air event during the coolest time of year, where a huge display of local arts and crafts combines with loads of local food trucks, artisan vendors, and a fun vibe suitable for the whole family. Where else in Bangkok can you find homemade mulled wine and craft beer alongside taco and burger trucks along with a family play area, and hundreds of local arts and crafts booths. It's one of these events that is easy to spend hours at, with a ton of great food, drink, and innovative items to check out. It's also laid out in a comfortable environment, a departure from the usual overcrowded and steaming hot night markets around Bangkok. In addition to the arts and crafts and food stalls, there are pet products, clothing stalls, and as the market grows each year, really everything under the sun. Unfortunately, they only host the market over one or two weekends in December, so you'll need to time your visit (in 2017, the market will happen December 16-17), but if you are around, this is really a great spot to do some unique Christmas shopping and enjoy the Bangkok version of winter.
- Christmas Shopping: "The best way to get here is to take the BTS Skytrain to On Nut, and walk back to Sukhumvit Soi 77, then up 77 about 500 meters to the entrance on your left. Sansiri also runs a free shuttle from the station during the height of the market, but the crowds can be fierce enough that it is actually easier to just walk over."
- Best for Christmas Shopping Because: For a real Bangkok winter market, Sansiri Winter Fest is best.
