Bangkok's Train Night Market Ratchada likely to close down permanently

PETALING JAYA (Aug 2): The popular tourist destination Train Night Market Ratchada in Bangkok is believed to be closing for good, according to Kapook, a Thai language lifestyle site on Saturday (July 31).

This is based on social media posts of some Thai stallholders who shared their grievances over the impending closure of the night market.

Additionally, a Facebook post by a bar owner there revealed that the Train Night Market Ratchada will be closing down permanently.

One of the owners said the night market no longer has the means to ride out the impact on business caused by Covid-19, which has led to the lack of international travellers.

Several food and beverage operators at the tourist attraction, also known as Rot Fai Market Ratchada, have said they were asked to move out as their stalls will be demolished soon.

Currently, the night market has been closed indefinitely since the start of Bangkok’s partial lockdown. It was operating for a short time in March and April. 

It was stated as closed temporarily throughout May, June and July with notices put up on a monthly basis during this period.

The last post on June 22 mentioned that the night market will reopen on Aug 1.

Train Night Market Ratchada has not issued any official word on the status of its future operations, with the Aug 1 opening still unconfirmed.
