Police are killing completely the nice atmosphere which used to be before. Np more street vendors and what is very bad no more street bars. It used to be so nice to sit in a street bar till day brake to watch people. We always said let us go to the movie and have fun. Really sad.

Super fresh and very well prepared seafood and thai dishes in a simple setting with metal tables and plastic chairs. Absolutely recommendable

Traffic from my hotel window for the market, looks like the most popular place to be at night fri -sun. Will check it out tomorrow night. Behind seacon shopping centre, a must see shopping centre. Great shopping as you don't get pestered, and can shop, have lunch and enjoy. All good boutiques plus small fashion carts and great food in... More

I am reviewing this in February having walked past every week for a very long time. Thankfully I can now walk the street between soi 3 and 33 without too much hassle. Previously there were vendors taking up much needed pedestrian space. It was always difficult to walk because inconsiderate vendors persisted in selling on both sides of the pavement... More

This night market takes you from the big Terminal 21 mall through the Indian quarter and into the Arab quarter with all the shops, food and market stalls to match. Better than Patpong. Great spot to people watch.

I love walking and enjoying the street food at Sukhumvit. They are delicious. Not a very clean place but food are excellent. Too many people come and eat and it is difficult to keep it always very clean. Very crowded and it is understood why they are popular when you taste the food. They are deliciously prepared. I always take... More

The place becomes very busy after dark, stalls are quickly popping up alongside the Nana BTS green line and it stops in the Arabic district nearby. Strolling around is safe and people are working hard to sell their goods. You can buy almost every conceivable cheap tourist item (hats, sandals, T-shirts, watches, sunglasses, bags ...) including stuff like male energy... More

Walked along thinking we were in for some bargains, not as busy as we had read it would be, market only seemed on one side of the road. Went to patpong the previous night and that was busier with more stalls ect. That said they sell all similar things bags wallets belts DVDs sunglasses ect so if u have something... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor and Ekamai is where the city's well-dressed and well-heeled spend their nights sipping cocktails in hidden speakeasies and posh restaurants. Live it up in one of Thong Lor's extravagant clubs and be prepared to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While great for a night out, the area is nothing short of interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix of savvy coffee shops, pop-up bars and loads of vintage stores, brought to you by hip locals with eyes for design.
