Bangkok's famous night market made it's Singapore debut at The Grandstand on February 4, and was slated to run until May 3. But due to COVID-19 concerns, Chatuchak Night Market has brought forward its closing date to March 29. It will remain open till then but in a recent press statement, its organisers urge everyone "to be sensible and stay home if you're unwell".
Chatuchak plans on returning to The Grandstand in July and August, but the postponement depends on how the situation pans out in the coming months.
