Top ways to experience Chatuchak Weekend Market
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Chatuchak
Every weekend, thousands of tourists make their way up to this Northern Bangkok suburb to get lost in an enormous maze of shops at the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Home to almost 10,000 vendors, you’ll find everything from vintage sneakers to comic books and Thai handicrafts being sold here. You name it, Chatuchack probably sells it. The market is a great place to pick up souvenirs, but be sure to bargain for a good price. After a day of shopping and strolling around, the lush green lanes of Chatuchak Park are a welcome relief.

One thing that you should not miss is to visit Chatuchak Market open only on Saturdays and Sundays.

At the entrance, grab a map and familiarize yourself with the area. When I visited this place, I spent 4 hours roaming around and shopping (and of course to have lunch).

All the things that you can think of are all there..

* Textiles and Clothes
* Poy Sian and ointments
* Herbs and spices
* Flip flops and shoes
* Leather items
* Bags
* Lights
* Oil burners
* Ceramics
* Household items
* Arts and Paintings
* Souvenir items
* Tattoo
* Massages
* Food and Beverages

I personally think this is overhyped.  If you want to see local life and have a cheap bite to eat at one of the street stalls then come.  Otherwise, there was nothing really exciting.  The quality and selection of products were not great.  There was the odd stall with some nice handicrafts.  Having said the above, Thailand has only just opened post-pandemic and many vendors have not returned.  I would say less than half were open.  The markets don't yet have the same atmosphere pre-pandemic.  It is easier to take a Tuk Tuk if you do come.  Very cheap. I would also say come earlier rather than later.

This is a very large USA style flea market. Plenty bargains if you look closely. I found new modern shirts for usd $1.00 that normally cost $30-40 usd. Not kidding. There's a mix of everything.

Everything available here with affordable price. Various street foods, souvenir shops and tees. If you want to go to JJ market or travel around Chatuchak and bangkok's downtown, I would recommend hotel located in Ari (quater ari would be one of good choice here)

Definitely worth a visit to experience Bangkok, however you can easily get lost in the endless rows of shops.

Definitely avoid taking kids! It’s too crowded, hot and stuff.

I think better shopping experience elsewhere, eg Terminal 21 where you get similar types of items.

Food wise, lots of selection from your mango ice-cream, to fish cakes and curries. Again, worthwhile to try but you can also get the same else where.
