RAMKHAMHAENG NIGHT MARKET 
 
What is a night market? I would term it as an open air night bazaar that creates a                                   
leisurely and informal shopping       
atmosphere. In some places like         
Ramkhamhaeng it is well organized         
as pictured on the left while in other               
places it is not. In terms of products,               
they have a wide array of items             
including clothes, leather goods,       
shoes, watches, perfume, costume       
jewellery and even sometimes live         
pets (dogs, rabbits, turtles). 
 
 
Location  
 
Ramkhamhaeng night market is located off Ramkhamhaeng Road just outside the gate                       
of Hua Mak Sports Complex. It covers almost the whole of Ramkhamhaeng road. In the                             
past there was no protection for the stalls from the fast flowing traffic. But now the                               
authorities have placed concrete barriers for safety.  
 
Bargaining 
 
One of the shopping techniques you must master for shopping in a                       
night market is bargaining. If you are interested in a product, ask how                         
much is it. Then counter offer half of the quoted price. Of course the                           
seller will say no. Then you increase your counter offer by another 5%.                         
At this juncture the seller might make a new offer. If you think it is                             
reasonable, take it. If not, continue to bargain as long as the seller is                           
willing. But there is one rule of the thumb. “​Never start bargaining if                         
you have no intention to buy as that is asking for trouble from an                           
angry seller​.” 
 
Eating At Your Own Risk 
 
There is always plenty to eat at the night                 
market. Name it, they might have it. If you are                   
a foreigner, you better be aware that the               
standards for food quality, preparations and

handling is totally different from your expectations.  
 
Seafood  
 
On the brighter side, seafoods like bbq freshwater fish can very appetizing with side                           
dishes like the popular Thai salads. I find generally, sea­food in Thailand is fresher and                             
cheaper than even my home country, Malaysia. But sometimes, be prepared to sit                         
cross­legged on the floor, eating from low tables as pictured above. 
 
Don’t be in a hurry 
 
To really enjoy the night market’s sounds, aromas, sights and colours, “​don’t be in a                             
hurry!​” Take it leisurely. Stroll, don’t brisk walk. There is so much to see. It can even be                                   
a  relaxation therapy after a hard day’s work. Relax and enjoy!
