    The cool, hipster style Artbox market from Bangkok is happening on 14 – 16 and 21 – 23 April 2017.

    The flea market is well-loved by discerning Bangkok travellers for its selection of local designer ware, unique handmade accessories, vintage fashion and stylish home décor pieces. Artbox Bangkok also boasts an awesome setup, with a number of stalls housed in giant shipping containers. This explains why the market is also often referred to as the ‘Container Market’

    The Bangkok version is also well known for its lively ambience featuring live bands and stalls paddling yummy street food. In Singapore, the event will take place over two weekends in April, at Bayfront, beside The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.

    Around 400,000 people are expected to turn up at this hipster flea market where there will be some 320 booths peddling food, fashion and art. Like the flea market in Bangkok, we are hoping that the vendors will keep prices affordable. Admission is free.
