Artbox Bangkok is a weekend night market in Bangkok that is normally open on the first weekend of selected months. Artbox Bangkok 2018 was really successful so Artbox Thailand continued organizing Artbox Bangkok 2019 market in Bangkok. At the beginning of the year the market was moving between the venues but currently Artbox Bangkok is set up permanently. Where? Read below!
Artbox Bangkok market's stalls housed in metal shipping containers are normally placed in large open spaces of Thai capital city. Artbox Bangkok 2019 was first set up at the Square B of Central World shopping mall, then moved to Samyan Market and spent one weekend at Emquartier before moving permanently to Chuvit Park in Central Bangkok.
At Artbox Bangkok you can find plenty of vendors selling something really special as that's the thing making this night market so popular between locals and visitors of Thai capital.
Artbox Bangkok is an unusual night market so don't expect to find usual touristy souvenirs such as "Chang" t-shirts or elephant pants here. For stuff like this you should choose another Bangkok night market.
However, if you're into creativity, you will definitely like strolling between rows of stalls selling local fashion brands, artworks and unique accessories. Artbox Bangkok 2019 attracts big number of local designers selling their own works.
Creative foods is another thing that makes Artbox Bangkok so special. You will find many creatively served snacks and drinks here, so come with an empty stomach and open mind for trying as many delicacies as you can. Vendors selling food at Artbox Bangkok changes constantly so even if you've visited this night market before, you will definitely find something new at Artbox Bangkok 2019.
Normally, there is also a space for artists and live music with the local bands heating up the atmosphere from the stage. Artbox Bangkok 2019 features local bands on the stage so hanging out here is really fun.

Artbox Bangkok 2019 Past Locations
Artbox Bangkok 2019 was at first located at Square B of Central World shopping mall in the downtown of Bangkok.
Later in February 2019 the market was located in an open space between Samyan Market and Chulalongkorn University Centenary Park, where Artbox Bangkok 2018 was located at the end of last year.
Artbox Thailand changed the venue of Artbox Bangkok 2019 in March and April was changed from Samyan Market to a more convenient location - Chuvit Garden. Chuvit Garden is a private park in Bangkok, at Sukhumvit Soi 10. The park can be conveniently reached by BTS as it's located between Nana and Asok BTS stations. After successful weekends here it was decided to move there permanently later this year.
Artbox Bangkok 2019 was also housed at Emquartier shopping mall for one weekend in March 2019. Artbox Bangkok at Emquartier had only Food Zone and Fashion Zone so it wasn't as charming as it is set up in open-air venues.
