Huai Khwang Night Market is one of many Bangkokians’ favourite local night market. Party goers often come over to grab some bite. Therefore, Huai Khwang Night Market opens till really late everyday, around 4am. Best of all, it’s not far from the main tourists areas and is easily accessible via the MRT subway.

Alight at Huai Khwang MRT Station. Proceed to Exit 3. Walk towards the road junction. You should be able to see the Ganesha Shrine aka Elephant God Temple, which is the starting point of Huai Khwang Night Market.
Start your Huai Khwang Night Market trip with some prayers at the Ganesha Shrine. The Ganesha Shrine at Huai Khwang Night Market is surprisingly popular with the locals too. With devotees flocking from all over, praying and seeking success and accomplishment.
For 500 baht, you could get some guidance by one of the many fortune tellers seated outside the Ganesha Shrine, right along the road.
From my observation, Huai Khwang Night Market serves majority local Thais. The local prices are very affordable and reasonable. So there is no tourist trap, but don’t expect to find the “I Love Bangkok” t-shirts or tourist souvenirs over here in Huai Khwang Night Market. I still manage to spot a couple of good buys from the 2 long sketches of shops in Huai Khwang Night Market.

Walking further down into Huai Khwang Night Market, you will be passing by the local fresh market in Huai Khwang Night Market, where locals grab their daily dose of veges and meat. Fresh fruits are what we are actually interested in. Durians!!!
Towards the end of Huai Khwang Night Market, will be the street food area. The street food is considerably cheaper compare to main touristy areas. But don’t expect the hygiene level to be that great too.
