Top 5 Night Shopping Spots in Bangkok

blend of night and shopping visit the following night markets:

The road is first choice of most of the backpackers coming to Bangkok. Apart from several
budget hotels, the road is home to several small shops. However, if you want to peep into another
exciting side of the road, visit here when the sun goes down. The night market changes the entire
face of the road as the small shops are overshadowed by variety of things sprawled on the ground
for sale. Take your pick from swanky t-shirts, artificial jewelry, old books, vintage clothing,
branded shoes and several handmade crafts.
