Ratchada Night Bazaar, Bangkok

3 of 14

Every Saturday night, the parking lot outside the Ratchadapisek MTR (metro) station swarms with Thais and a handful of tourists who sift through piles of secondhand jeans and leather handbags, vintage cameras, furnishings, and auto accessories for that one perfect purchase. The market began as a swap meet for used scooters and classic car parts, but has since expanded to showcase all kinds of vintage vehicles and fashions. Besides being a great place to bargain hunt, it's also a window onto Thai culture.

Market Find: Vintage cameras, classic advertisement posters, and vinyl Thai records.
