Rod Fai is often called the "Train Market" because it was originally located next to the train routes on the outskirts of Bangkok. Rod Fai has long been famous as the second largest night market in Thailand with a variety of fashion, entertainment and food. With the success of the original Rod Fai night market, Thailand has launched the second Rod Fai market in 2015, commonly known as the Talad Rod Fai or the Rod Fai night market in Ratchada. Although not as large as the original Rod Fai market, Talad Rod Fai is located near central Bangkok and the road is more convenient for tourists to stop by.

In particular, the diverse cuisine at this new Talad Rod Fai market is sometimes even more attractive than the old market. That's why it has only opened since 2015 and until now, this night market is increasingly bustling with the visit of countless visitors every day. The famous Ratchada Night Train Market not only sells casual items like apparel but also offers a variety of antique and vintage souvenirs.

The market consists of 3 main areas: Market Zone, Warehouse Zone and Rod's Antiques where you can find almost everything. If bargaining for clothes or hunting for antiques is not enough for you, Rod Fai Market also serves a variety of street food, from delicious barbecue to Thai milk tea.
