Visiting Bangkok without going to any of the local night markets is definitely not a thing you should do here! Remember I have shared Talad Rod Fai 2 Night Market last year in November? Here I am to introduce you another awesome night market you should visit in Bangkok – JJ Green Night Market.
Also known as Chatuchak Green or Siam Gypsy Night Market, JJ Green is probably one of the coolest night markets in Bangkok. The vibe is similar to Talad Rod Fai; however, personally think it is even more amazing! By the name itself, you probably able to guess it is also located in the area of Chatuchak area. Yes, it is situated at Chatuchak Park. Danny and I spent 20 minutes walking from Chatuchak Weekend Market to JJ Green Night Market.
Therefore, we suggested you going for daytime shopping at Chatuchak Weekend Market, then JJ Green Night Market at night.
FYI, JJ Green Market is a lifestyle community mall. It opens since morning; while the night market starts at 5pm till late night. Nonetheless, this place only alive around 7pm or 8pm at night. Most sellers only start preparing their business at 4pm onwards. If you want to experience it, visit here between Thursday till Sunday, 7pm onwards.
Apart from that, JJ Green Night Market can be divided into two sections: flea market and community mall (dining area).
Flea Market is the market in parking slot. You will find a lot of interesting and unique vintage stuffs in this section. For example, retro cameras, accessories, plants, car or biker gears, clothes, antiques, collectible CDs etc.
There is also live band and teenagers performance as well.
The parking slot is spacious, I have forgotten how many rows Danny and I walked. We only remember how tiring our legs were! We can’t feel them at all! Especially we have done a whole afternoon shopping at Chatuchak Weekend Market.
Look at the picture below. Our shopping haul~
Community mall/dining area is where you can find food and drinks! Here is the area you can pamper your stomach! Local Thai food, Korean food, pub/club, hawker food etc.
There are two-storey restaurants and pubs. It is a good choice to chill with your friends at the rooftop bar.
A lookout point is set here too. Visitors can view the amazing night market scene here! It’s beautiful, isn’t it?
So…. Plan a night at JJ Green Night Market when you are going to Bangkok. For sure you will not miss Chatuchak Weekend Market, so just take a walk till JJ Green Night Market. However, it depends on personal stamina too. Honestly speaking, it was so tiring because we bought a lot of stuffs before heading to JJ Green Night Market.
