My number 1 highlight of the trip was this treasure trove of a weekend night market.
1. Thai youth dominated, awesome. Barely any foreigners, except the occasional white dude. And us, but we can pass off as Thai so.
2. Wonderful vintage galore! And plenty of new stuff also.
3. Cheap. At the legendary Jatujak Weekend Market one vintage dress = 500 THB. Ratchada Night Market = 150-250 THB. Bargain bargain bargain, 110 THB. That's about SGD$5/USD$3 to you. I don't even mean the ratty raggy funky-smelling vintage, I'm referring to brand new vintage.
1. Dim lighting or none at all. One of my cheap tees had a teeny tiny hole. If you're really anal, bring a torchlight.
2. Apparently only opened on Saturdays.
3. Getting there is quite tricky. Because of the many night markets in Bangkok, even taking a cab won't guarantee you'll get to this particular one. Sure-fire way to reach, take the subway, known there as MRT (confusing I know). Alight at Ratchadaphisek station, get out at Exit 2. When you emerge, you'll see nothing but buildings, chill. Turn left, walk straight ahead for less than 10 minutes. You know you've reached when you start seeing a line of parked vintage Volkswagens.
I should probably take photos of what I got instead, but urrrgggghh laaaaazzzzzzy i haaaavvveee beettteeerrr thhhiinngggsss tooo doooo bye.
