Chatuchak Weekend Market
A true Bangkok, if not Thailand landmark. Many say you haven’t been to Bangkok if you haven’t been to Chatuchak, One of the world’s largest and most eclectic bazaars in the world. Weekly open markets have a long tradition in Thailand, and this is the biggest. Wherever you travel in the country, you’ll find markets held on different days of the week during the mornings or evenings. And, this tradition seems to be growing even now. Chatuchak continues to set the trend, though, with its books to plants to antiques, pets, food and drink, fashion, furnishings, collectibles, ceramics and virtually most anything else you could imagine. it covers 35 acres, comprises 27 sections and includes more than 15,000 stalls. it is easy to get lost. Best to set your reckonings from the Central Clock Tower. It’s also a safe place to set a time to meet, as the crowds can be dense and the lanes between stalls can make you dizzy. Still, everyone is friendly and extremely helpful. Bargaining is still required, but once a deal has been struck, smiles are seen on everyone’s face.
Recommended Shopping: Clothes, fashion accessories, collectibles, and souvenirs from all over the country. Whatever you might be looking for, there's a good chance you will find it here, and at a very reasonable price if you bargain.
