Ratchathewi Canal night Markets



note: when we visit a new area to "Discover" we usually return several times to build data so...

be patient or come and try and contribute to the discovery 

Ratchathewi area is near centre of town at Sukhumvit end

The Canal Saen Saep cuts through the back of the city

The walk was a few hours; pics and eats and a lot of walking as a discovery mission - you can fast sections by taxi

why this track

Previously walk up to this section where we thought you could no further
I came back and decided to explore and see you can walk through the house (thats weird) and 

suddenly you came out onto a railway line (also weird and dangerous if you don't know)

then I continued along the railway track to the main road where I have passed before on the way to the night markets Talad Neon 

at Neon Night Markets there are many interesting sights 
you have clear view of two (2) major rooftops 
from the front of the markets you can see Redsky (60 flrs) and from the rear of the markets at the open air bars you can see Baiyoke tower (83 flrs)

The markets are very appealing for tourist
wide isles 
very bright lighting for  an open air market
Thai and english signage 
cheap price food and souvenirs 
incredible sweets 
open air bars to the rear with foot massage service ontop of the bars (sea containers) with view of the city skyline 
loads of taxi and tuktuk

There are alternative markets - see links below 


walk or ride along the local canal

the ride on the canal is a given but the walk is interesting especially to watch the hectic rush of boats in and out of the small space 

street food, intensity of traffic / people cars at the intersection below the skytrain station 

walk to night markets was a little dull

Night markets fun way to enjoy eats and drinks and view of rooftops and plan more events


what we missed

did not take pics of 
1. street food
2. busy intersection of traffic .. at sunset a photo of the intensity of people traffic 
the railway crossing, train arrives, people aloft, cars and bikes waiting at traffic lights, people walking along overhead sky bridge
people on street, street food  - it's a buzz   - ideal for a 360 video .. 

Other stuff to try
1. walk along the railway track - looks scary .. where people live
