JJ Green Night Market is the cooler side of the Chatuchak weekend market. Without many tourists, and mostly young, hip Thai students, you will find vintage goods galore, kitschy souvenirs, and the most random t-shirts in the world. There are great places to eat and drink, and simply chill out. I'd highly recommend JJ Green Night Market for a great, more local experience on a weekend night in Bangkok.
And if you're looking to snag a few deals, or even just chat with the locals, it doesn’t hurt to learn a little bit of Thai. Here are a few quick pointers:
Hello = Sah-wah-dee Ka (woman speaking) Sah-wah-dee Krahp (man speaking)
How much? = Tan Rai?
Thank you = Kop-Khun-Ka (woman speaking) Kop-Khun-Krap (man speaking)
