Chang Chui Bangkok Plane Market

Artsy Market in Pinklao

    Chang Chui Bangkok Plane Night Market has a nice selection of shopping and dining, combined with modern, urban and often wacky art installations. For those staying close to the Old Town and Khao San, this market is quite easy to reach by taxi. If you’re traveling from Bangkok’s downtown areas of Sukhumvit or Silom, it’s best to visit early in the day.

    Highlights of Chang Chui Bangkok Plane Market

    Chang Chui Bangkok Plane Market has 18 separate buildings made from recycled materials. Besides the generally cool, artistic vibe, you can enjoy a wide selection of food and craft beer, as well as shop for boutique fashion pieces.

    The market’s main attraction is the shell of a Lockheed L-1011 Tristar airplane. There are plenty of unique art sculptures that make for excellent photos. Families can enjoy slides, treehouses and swings scattered throughout the market.

    A food pavilion serves Asian and international street food such as fresh oysters, sushi, pizza, ramen, and som tum (papaya salad). Towards the back of the market is a row of bars serving cold beers and cocktails.

    Chang Chui Bangkok Plane Market has 2 spaces for live performances, usually acoustic and jazz music playing throughout the night. The entire area is pet-friendly, so you’ll see many people with their dogs in the early evenings.
