Sukhumvit Street Market highlights

Sukhumvit Street Market stands out from most markets in Bangkok thanks to the convenience of its downtown location. The market opens every evening, with vendors setting up around 5pm and selling through the night until around midnight.

Tourist-friendly businesses such as massage parlours, tailors, and restaurants occupy shops opposite the street market. You’ll also find pop-up bars offering cheap drinks and snacks, as this is a slightly seedy part of Nana. It’s also a fascinating part of the city where many types of people converge at night.
