Chatuchak Weekend Market – Bangkok’s Best Shopping Destination

If there’s one market I could recommend for all travellers out there to visit in Bangkok that would be Chatuchak Market. I love visiting markets because of a variety of reasons. I see a lot of locally produced items, I get to observe locals buying habits and I get to see a variety of unique stuff. Some people say that a particular town or city’s market says a lot about the culture of that place. And it really does.

Best time to go to Chatuchak Market is on the weekends where most stalls are open. It’s said that Chatuchak is the biggest weekend market in the world, and once you get there, you’ll surely know why.

The market is divided into different clusters depending on the goods or products they are selling. You can buy clothes (new and second hand), shoes, accessories, bags, plants, foods, souvenirs, leather goods, household items, books, pets (yes, even pets), pet products and a variety of other things.

Here are some of the items I found interesting in Chatuchak Weekend Market:
