Sampeng Market Tours

Perhaps the most popular of Bangkok’s street markets, Sampeng Market—known by locals at Yaowarat—is an energetic and eclectic space in the city’s Chinatown neighborhood that’s jam packed with food, fabric, jewelry and other random items. Locals flock to crowded stalls in search of wholesale items, while tourists can be found sampling spicy dishes and combing through collections of t-shirts, handbags, jewelry and artwork. Travelers are encouraged to barter for lower prices, although most items are tough to find cheaper. Those who prefer a more typical shopping experience can head to nearby Terminal 21, a well-known shopping mall with fewer crowds and standard international offerings.

Practical Info

Travelers can access Sampeng Market by taking a riverboat to Ratchawong Pier and walking about five minutes inland to Sampeng Lane in the Samphanthawong District. The market is open daily from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. It tends to be more crowded on weekends.
