Getting a taxi from your hotel or hostel is the easiest way of getting to JJ Green. Taxis are readily available all over the city so hail vacant one over and ask to go on the meter. Most cab drivers will agree to a metered price but some may refuse so this is where you may need to barter. If this is the case, simply ask the concierge or front desk roughly how much it would cost to get to the market before you depart this means you can get a fair price when agreeing to a price. From Siam Central, expect to pay 150-200 Baht for a taxi.
Transport fares for taxis and tuk-tuks fares can rise when it gets later into the night so you may have to pay 100 Baht extra to get back to your hotel if it’s the middle of the night!
The Skytrain (BTS) is the most cost-effective way of getting to JJ Green Night Market. The market is situated at Mo Chit station (N8) on the Sukhumvit Line. This line runs straight through the heart of Central Bangkok so it is very easy to hop on and off. Fares from Siam are 42 Baht which is far cheaper than a taxi. From the Skytrain station walk through the park to get to JJ Green Market. The Skytrain service shuts at 12 am. Please remember that the Skytrain service shuts at 12 am!
Travelling by the three-wheeled, open aired motorcycle taxi known as the Tuk Tuk is the most authentic way to get to the Bangkok Night Market! Before stepping into a Tuk Tuk make sure you agree on a price with the driver, this can be more expensive than a taxi generally as you pay for the novelty of travelling in one of South-East Asia’s most popular vehicles.
The Mass Rapid Transit network (MRT) is Bangkok’s subway system. With 18 stops stretching around 20km across Bangkok, this is similar to the Skytrain and is very easy to use. Jump off at the Chatuchak Park stop and walk through the park to get to the JJ Green Market. Please remember that the MRT shuts at 12 am!
For people that want to get there the cheapest way possible, we would suggest grabbing a bus. One area many tourists choose to stay is on Khao San Road. If you are staying there and want to visit JJ Green, you need to catch either bus number 524 or 3. The bus will drop you next to the Skytrain and MRT stops so walk through the park to get to the market. Buses are not operational in the night so only take a bus going to the Bangkok Night Market.
