1. Revisit Bangkok’s old night markets – Old School Charm
One of the things that makes this night market appealing, is its old school charm.
Before night markets got so big and glamorous (like Talad Neon for example), they were just like this – rows of shops and little alleys and stalls to duck into on the sides of a road. Easy to walk, shop, and eat.
PS: Whether you take the MRT to Huai Kwang MRT Station and walk to the night market, or take a taxi/Uber to get to the night market – look out for this local supermarket. It’s the landmark that signals the start of the market!

2. What’s the shopping like here? – Fashion, Accessories, and Beauty Tools
One of the most important aspects of a night market is the shopping experience available. At Huai Kwang Night Market, you won’t get the usual crazy rows of shops.
Instead, you will enjoy a quiet night of shopping at the different stalls that offer everything from unique earrings and various accessories – to unexpectedly trendy fashion like cute jeans with sequins or flamingo decals, dresses and outfits for different personalities and more.
If you’ve ever wanted to get a wig, there’s a wig shop here for anyone who wants to get their Kylie Jenner on. Rows of wigs of different styles and colours. They might not be top quality wigs, but they’re good enough!
You can also pick up trendy clothes like embroidered jackets, silk pyjamas and beauty tools (such as DIY gel manicure kits or storage boxes) here.
PS: There are more nail parlours along the night market, hair extensions and wigs being sold, as well as a waxing parlour. Simply take your pick.
4. Eat like a local, order like a local – Noi Seafood
If you’re looking for the go-to local place to eat, Noi Seafood is the place to be. We’ve eaten there at least twice and particularly enjoyed the Claypot Prawn Vermicelli (it’s really, really good), and Crab Omelette!
Honestly, we went in to take a look just because the huge prawns displayed outside caught our eyes – and found out that it’s actually a popular restaurant that both locals and travellers enjoy.
The only downside is that there’s no English menu, so we ordered through a photo menu. Flip through the photos of different dishes, and order what looks good to you!
PS: To check what dishes they have, or prices, ask the staff. They don’t speak much English, but will be able to sufficiently communicate their most-recommended and the types of dishes too.
