Sukhumvit Soi 38 Night Food Market, Bangkok
(3.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
For a real taste of Thailand, head to Sukhumvit Soi 38 Night Food Market and choose from an abundance of street food like sticky rice and mango, pad Thai, and fruit smoothies. Known for its variety and decent hygiene, this attraction fills with food stalls starting in the early evening. Most stalls offer English menus, so you can order easily--but do be prepared for a very casual dining experience. Small tables with plastic or metal stools are typically arranged next to the stall, where you can grab a seat. Look for an extremely popular stall called Pad Thai Fire Look, where one of the best pad Thai chefs in the city works. Add Sukhumvit Soi 38 Night Food Market to your Bangkok travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Bangkok tourist route planner.

  • We found this place in our lonely planer guide and it was exactly what we were looking for. Good food, ridiculously cheap(compare to the UK)! You pay for the food here and not a beautiful decor. Super...  more »

  • Beautiful place, nice and quiet, slow wifi but wifi that worked, so far so good safety, and nice staff. Only downside is a very tough bed but at 10 USD a night it is a good buy. I would highly suggest to anyone young or interested in the night life of Bangkok, there are an incredible quantity of great clubs and bars just north and northwest of the hostel. The staff will help you find them without a problem. Honestly I loved my stay here and despite the two minor rough points I wasn't in Bangkok to sleep or play on my phone and neither should you be! :D
  • This hostel hosted a nice and diverse young crowd of mostly solo travelers when I was there. Met some great fellows there to hang around with in Bangkok. As for the rooms, fine, but thin walls, so bring your earplugs. Friendly staff. Great location - right by the Sky Train, a rooftop hotel bar (Marriott's Octave) and a terrific food market.
  • I stayed here in 2011, and came back again in 2016. The hostel is really clean and the facility is well-organized . The staff is very friendly and nice . I will go back again for my next visit .
  • We didn't stay here but it looked really nice and comfortable and well decorated. Some of these reviews seem to be for the food court at the mouth of soi 38.
  • It's an ok night food market with about 10-15 vendors. It might have been the timing as we were told that it was street cleaning day so not as many vendors came out as normal. This night market is also set to be dismantle b/c of high rise development which is said. The food is ok. We had grilled turmeric squid which was not cleaned and gutted at all donut had the hard inedible parts still in. The pad Thai from the famous vendor is not so great, the chicken curry roti was the highlight of the nights meal. The food here is nothing special or different there everywhere else on the streets.
