These problems have posed major trials and tribulations for numerous Thai food vendors who are a part of this event. This has prodded Chatuchak Night Market Singapore to scout for other solutions to allow Singaporeans to experience authentic Thai street food at the event.

What will happen next year then? Well, further updates will be revealed in due course so stay tuned.

Chatuchak Night Market Singapore has been popular in Singapore, attracting
thousands of supporters over the years. The event has not only brought authentic Thai food to Singapore, but has also helped to encourage cultural exchange and understanding between Singapore and Thailand.

For those who haven’t had the opportunity to visit Chatuchak Night Market, you have until 2 April 2023 to savour all the authentic Thai street food you can. Let’s hope a miracle will happen and they’ll be able to return in the future (fingers crossed).
