Vintage is the rage in Bangkok, sounds included. My own newfound obsession with old school music started a few months ago, when I asked a relative to bring over a faux-vintage record player from the United States. The hardest part wasn’t carrying of a kilo of fragile equipment over the ocean. It was finding those large black disks to play on it. If you're up for some digging, check out the vintage Ratchada and Rodfai weekend night markets, or head out bright and early Sunday morning to Klong Thom and Charoen Krung for cheap, but sometimes badly kept, records. Otherwise, if you prefer to do your digging in air-conditioned surrounds, here are some of the best shops in Bangkok to hunt for vinyl records and players.
