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

We went bowling on the top floor. The bowling alley is great. Very clean and well organized. A good place for a kids party. Also upstairs was an interesting art space. Art in paradise. The rest of the mall was very empty. Lots of empty store fronts.

Well worth a visit. This is a busy market (aren't they all) with a drinking area, plenty of snack food to eat on the go and a couple of restaurants. Try the one called Frankfurter, not sure why it is called that as they serve Thai food. Good bands on here so you can spend a pleasant evening eating and drinking while watching others shopping. Easily accessible via the MRT.

Get to the Esplanade. Go out the Back Entrance. There is a huge tent night market there selling every type of foods that you can imagine. You have to go there and experience it.
Its open-air so go only on a good day. And its a night market, so this is not the place for lunch.
Enjoy! Try eating a cricket or a worm while you are there! :-/

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.
