The new venue will be at Chatuchak area, accessible via MRT Kamphaengphet Station (Exit 1). Their new operating hours are from 12pm to 11pm.

Meanwhile, you can check out other night markets available in Bangkok.

  • 27-29 May

I strongly advise you to visit from 6-10pm for the best experience.

**Update 21 Apr**

Thanks to Eddie, our Bangkok Correspondent for the update!

Artbox will be closed indefinitely until further notice due to venue issues.

I also like what Eddie said:

“I understand the frustrations this might bring to you who would have liked to pay a visit after so much hoo-ha, but before we make judgements, let’s try to understand the many difficulties the organisers might have to face running this extremely popular mobile flea market. I am sure they would have wanted to keep it open if it was possible.”

**Update 13 Apr: ArtBox posted on their IG without any pre-notice that they will be closed and will be back on 29 April 2016.**

NOTICE: ArtBox Bangkok will be open from 18 March until 19 June, every weekend (Fri-Sun) at THE EM District.

I strongly advise you to visit from 6-10pm for the best experience.

Please refer to Artbox at The EM District for detailed walking directions.

ArtBox Bangkok is the latest kind of Night Market to hit Bangkok! And the concept is rather interesting. Instead of the usual tentages, this night market uses containers and the vibe here is totally different from the other night markets currently in Bangkok.

ArtBox Bangkok started in 12 June 2015. Initially it was planned to open for only 2 weekends, but it seems that they are extending it to a weekly affair. Not surprising though because it have been very popular and thousands of teenagers and young adults stream to this place with their friends weekly.

Walking around, I see many people taking selfies and photos against the backdrop of this place. How can a container be so nice! Now you see it!

How can ArtBox be without art?

There are lots of interesting stuff designed by teenagers and I must say that Thais are very entrepreneurial.

Land of Smiles. This pretty girl posed with a smile when she saw me taking a photo of her shop. Thank you for making my day! 🙂 Do checkout their interesting Mushroom Snack at Facebook or Instagram (@smacksmushroom)

Here are some shops selling food and desserts which caught my attention and I do see many people buying too.

The live band did make the whole place very lively!

You see many food trucks operating too and you can sit in style to have your food.

If you happen to be in Bangkok and they are open, you definitely have to check out this night market. I must say that this night market is “Limited Edition”. Do checkout their Facebook Page to find out when they are operating. :)
