BANGKOK — Shop at the dock, chill by the river and rock on the ship. Not a bad weekend evening, even if we’re still waiting for winter to arrive.

The Great Outdoor Market returns for a second year to a sprawling navy dry dock on the Chao Phraya River later this month to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the state-run Bangkok Dock Co.

The market will feature handicrafts, art installations, workshops, pop-up cafes, exhibition space, food trucks, live music and more. Visit from 4pm until late Dec. 10 through Dec. 13.

Yellow Fang, Plastic Plastic, Jelly Rocket and more will perform on the 36-year-old Royal Thai Navy Auxiliary Ship 821.


Admission is free. Bangkok Docklands is a short walk from BTS Saphan Taksin or Sathorn Pier on Charoen Krung Road next to Wat Yannawa.
