Everyone visiting Bangkok on weekend will not miss this place. It is like a maze to me though you can find the most variety of stuff here. Even massage. It is non air-conditioned so be prepared to sweat. I started with a brunch then shopping through the maze and ended with a foot reflex which cost THB250/hour.

The quality and variety of handicrafts and other articles on offer just keeps getting better. The ambiance in the market is very pleasant, no harassment by hawkers, little coffee shops and drinks stands are available, shops are often air conditioned. We saw only a small slice of this enormous market, so we'll have to go back. We were looking very... More

I love to shop but this market was even a little much for me. Countless aisles of vendors, partially organized into sections of types of goods, but still chaotic. Bring water, cash, a snack and a strong stomach to deal with the smells of a market and the thousands of people you will be shopping with! It really is a... More

I use the clock tower as my center point. After that get loss inside the market. If you see something just ask if they... More

It is litteraly a maze, you can walk arround for hours without going back to a place you've been before. You can find anything you need for souvenirs or personal stuff. Thai are really though in barganing since the place is filled with tourists. They dont respond to regular barganing technique because they always have affluence in their shops. You... More

Staying in Chatuchak

Neighborhood Profile
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.
