Crowded at night, maybe due to the night market behind.

The usual type of shopping mall you'll get with more locals brands. The popular Rod Fai night... read more

This night market is relatively new as compared with other night markets in Bangkok. Easily accessible by MRT and just a short walk through the Esplanade shopping mall. I had read that this was an off-the-beaten-track type of place (a kind of Rot Fai reincarnated) but I bet you that it was not. Clear evidence was seen in numerous selfie phone camera-toting tourists who thronged the place. Much had been said about the place selling retro and non-main stream stuff, but again I found that to be untrue. The food stalls sold basically the same dishes – as of February 2018, the popular dishes were salt-baked grilled fish and BBQ seafood. The goods stalls sold the usual knock-off t-shirts and hand phone accessories. There were numerous pubs, but again in local lingo, they were same-same.

I’m not saying that this was not worth visiting. When the evening weather was forgiving and after a couple of beers, the place was actually quite tolerable. Just know what you are in for.

So many amazing places, this is a mall and it's worth a visit plenty to see and do some different shops and some restaurants that are slightly different, worth a visit it's different.

Pretty much malls upon malls in Bangkok. Probably not how most people want to spend vacay but a/c and food offerings. There is the Rot Fai Rachada night market inside (ok) and train market behind it on Wed thru Sun.

Great local shopping mall - Caters to all ages - There's a Cinema, mini play land, bookstore, hair and beauty parlours - many skin and anti ageing clinics - beware they are agressive! There's a supermarket, specialty bread stores - restaurants - Hot pots, fast food, Japanese curry house, BBQ, Korean Fried Chicken, Sushi, steak, salad and thai restaurants here. Quite new and the bathrooms clean and well maintained. There's also like a flea market in the middle and in the evening at the back from 5 pm to 10 pm there's a big flea market with food, clothes and interesting things. The subway is just steps from the shopping all.

My family really enjoyed this mall. They have the usual chain stores but int the ground floor atrium area, they also had stalls selling night market type stuff. So you could start your night market shopping here before heading out to the back for more at Rod Fai night market 2. Nice being able to shop in an aircon environment. Food options were also good. Do check out Rod Fai though as the place is just really happening! Interesting items on sale and variety of food options from proper restaurants/pubs (with live band!) to street food style. Loved the vibe so another must visit in Bangkok!
