This giant bazaar is the biggest market in Asia and a must-see in Bangkok. More than 15,000 stalls divided in 21 categories offer a bewildering array of goods including clothing, jewellery, books, housewares, furniture and much, much more. You can even buy a pet. It’s a labyrinth inside so you may want to plan your browsing. Note as well it can be quite warm within the covered, open-air structure, particularly deep inside, so you’ll want to dress accordingly.
After long hours of navigating the market’s narrow confines, take a break from shopping and relax in leafy Chatuchak Park adjacent the market.
Chatuchak Weekend Market is open Saturday and Sunday only from 9.00 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. Getting there from the hotel is uncomplicated: simply take BTS SkyTrain at Asok Station and continue to BTS Mochit Station 11 stops away.
