Onnut night market… a shopping place near BTS Onnut

Update: December 2015

This market does not exist anymore. The area is now under construction. I have heard that they are building a shopping mall there. Currently there is only a row of stalls selling fashion items and food.

Update: July 2017

After the closing down of this market, there are 2 new markets in the area named The Corner 79 and New Onnut Night Market. You can click the link to see my review of these new markets.

Onnut was the BTS terminal station. It was a small transportation hub because people had to get off here and transfer to buses. Since BTS extended the Sukhumvit line, Onnut now is not the terminal station anymore. But, this market is still full with people in the evening. You can easily see this market from the BTS onnut. OnnutMarket00

This night market is not small. However, it is much smaller than The Platinum Fashion Mall and Chatuchak weekend market. It is full with woman clothes, man clothes, handbags, shoes, cosmetics, and accessories. Here, you can find a dress under 200 baht and you also can make a negotiation. Some shops allow you to try on the clothes, but there is no proper fitting room. The shop owners prepare a sarong which could be adapted as a fitting room. The shops accept only cash. You can find ATM machines at the BTS station. I always go shopping at this night market because it is very near to my home (just only 10 minutes walk).

There are many food carts in this market; it is a place for dinner with friends. Many people meet, eat, and shop here after work.

All in all, this market is not a must-see shopping place. But, if you pass by Onnut station, you can have a good evening here.

Location:  BTS Onnut station, opposite Tesco Lotus. The easiest way to go to this market is to get off the skytrain (BTS) at Onnut station.
