The Roi Fai Market also offers some of the most reasonably priced holiday shopping in all of Thailand. While bartering is allowed at the market, you probably won't even think about trying as the prices are so cheap! With so many stalls and items to purchase, Roi Fai Market is the perfect place to pick up those all-important souvenirs holiday mementos.
Whilst shopping is the major attraction at Roi Fai Market, you cannot miss out on trying some of the local cuisine. Offering a huge variety of local and international dishes, the most popular dishes are barbequed meats, sizzling fried noodles and Thai style deserts. Many street vendors are also finding fun and innovative ways to turn typical street-style food into trendy and fashionable dishes, which make for great photo opportunities. There are also many bars located around the market which offer a more relaxed atmosphere as well as delicious cocktails and drinks once you have completed your shopping expedition.
Open Thursday through Sunday from 5:00pm to 1:00am, we recommend visiting as early as possible as the market can become very crowded at night. The Roi Fai Market is located on Srinakarin Soi 51, right next to Season Square Shopping Mall. The most convenient way to get to the market is by taxi (most drivers will know the shopping mall), or BTS Skytrain then a short walk from the station.
