With flashing lights, bustling streets, and entertainment to suit everyone’s taste Bangkok has been awakening our senses. A visit to Bangkok wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Grand Palace and for an extra special day, take a boat trip along the Phraya River. Of course, we all want a bargain and the biggest shopping district of Pratanum does not disappoint. But, the question remains, what should you do as the sun sets in Bangkok. In our mind, it’s the perfect time to explore a different side that comes to life after dark, the night markets. There are many night markets in and around Bangkok - from markets with thousands of stalls, enough to look like a metropolis itself, to very small markets hidden away. We’ve scoured down alleyways and treaded the walkways to find you the best night markets near Pratunam in Bangkok, Thailand.
