New Night Market Nana park

Recommended Posts

The park opposite soi 13 that has been locked up for years has now reopened as a Nice night market. Very well set up with live music every night beers and food etc

hopefully it stays that way and not demolished as was rumored for yet another condo

You're talking about the former Chuwit Gardens near Suk Soi 10, a former privately owned public park that's been closed for the past year or so.

 

AFAIK, the current Thu., Fri, Sat, Sun-only night market is only a temporary thing, and Chuwit supposedly is leasing the land to developer Land and Houses for a big hotel, retail, office complex on the site. The only curious part is, since that development deal was announced one year ago, there's been virtually no physical activity on the site.... So???

A small private park in Bangkok’s Central Business District has been leased to developer Land and Houses Co. Ltd who will demolish it and build a mixed-used development on the site. Chuvit Garden is owned by Thai politician Chuwit Kamolvisit and was opened in 2006 after his arrest.
 

A mixed-use commercial project valued at THB6 billion will be built on the land, according to officials familiar with the matter. Land and Houses Board Chairman Naporn Sunthornchitcharoen already said that the company is going to sign a 30-year leasehold agreement with Chuwit in February to finalise the deal.

Yup...temporary... but supposedly going to be for much of the rest of this year, and the suggestion below seems to be they'll be expanding to more days instead of just Thurs to Sun....  The original timeline for the commercial project was to start sometime in 2019.

Their stated hours seem to be 3 pm till midnight...but someone posted on their Facebook page that many of the vendors there don't really arrive and open until 4:30 to 5 pm.... So YMMV....  Right now, with the weather, I don't really want to be outside at 3 pm in the afternoon anyway!

Property developers can take years to ramp up . Many examples of that in BKK. At least people can enjoy it while it lasts

Still shows as Chuvit Garden when I look on Google Maps now...  even though they tore down the stone signage markers that contained his name when they originally closed the park.

Too bad a shopping center can't fit. We need another one. : )

 

Takes time for funding/ designing, etc. Remember Bangkok wasn't built in a day. 

 

Thanks OP for the tip.

The answer to the above riddle is magnification. 

 

This is the problem with Google or any other mapping app. One cannot see the bigger picture?

that place used to be a night market until one night a large group of thugs descended on the place and demolished it

It wasn't referred to as a night market but a meat market I think? It was full of beer bars and even had an aircon gogo bar at one time.

walked through the new night market once. ground is covered with a big tarp and it covers numerous horizontal tree roots and other irregularities. really difficult to walk.

 

had pad thai where 2 managers were nonstop on sitting on mobiles and my table looked like it hadn't been cleaned after customers all night.

Yeah, my next question was going to be do they keep the beers in a tub of water like they do at the highly acclaimed Train Market?  Apparently, they have figured out loads of Chinese will come anyways, so why keep the beer cold?
