We have visit the market at friday evening, something about 7 o’clock (up to 11). Many shops were still closed. In particular, all the pet shops and the flower shops were closed. Even so there were many people and you could buy all the great food or cheap clothes. Go to the market other day than friday If you want to see real live market.

We went to Chatuchak market for some souvenirs and personal stuffs. Here we bought tshirts, perfume, home decors, soaps etc. Great savings on good stuffs. Love the paella on one of the resto with a jolly cook.

This market is huge, we spent a few hours here. You can buy clothes, crafts and get food here. If you are looking for fakes or knock-offs I wouldn't recommend here but it definitely worth a visit.

I have been to this market 3 times over 9 years. It has everything from tourist souvenirs, food, furniture, household items, clothes, pets and many other curiousities. It just worth a visit for the experience.
It has changed over the 9 years. They don't haggle with tourists as much so expect higher prices because loads of other tourists pay the heftier price but there are still bargains.
The market is easy to get to and I haven't got lost yet. I get lost in my own house to give you an idea!!
Public transport is easy in Thailand and to the market. Don't let the fact that it is a long way out discourage you. Just wear good walking shoes and have water.

If you have not spent one full day at Chatuchak market, you have missed out on one of the largest open markets in the world with 8,000 outlets and shops. Be prepared for some sweat and heat with crowd that is gentle. Do take sips of fluids to find everyone. Just when you feel you will drop dead exhausted, go for one of the foot and shoulder massages for 45 mins at 200 Baht and come out rejuvenated.

There are 27 zones with each having different items. Grab a map so you do not waste time finding what you want. It is a bargain place and you will quickly get a hang of how much to bargain which will range from fixed prices to a range of 20 to 50% bargains depending upon what you are looking for. Eating in one of those stalls is pretty safe (and cheap) as they have stringent hygiene rules that are strictly followed.

The last time I've been here was 2 years ago and it was really packed with people even at night. But this time, there aren't as many tourists and locals alike. The shops are still great as well as the products they offer. There are also more security personnel especially when it gets dark which is good. I still love coming back to this place everytime I'm in BKK. So many things to see and sooo tempting haha

Lots of options to check out, good to visit if you want to sight-see or maybe shop/buy items and eat street-food at the same time. Food choices are available too.Though price wise, not as cheap as before (maybe because it is touristy). Very accessible for transport as there is a train line with a stop in Chatuchak itself. Still a good place to
consider if you are a tourist and first time to do it. But if your main purpose is shopping, there are more cheaper options i.e. Pratunam area.

We headed to Chatuchak early (930am) as we wanted to avoid the crowds. Some stalls were still not open, so if you'd like the full experience (crowd included), go slightly later. We found the stores to be selling pretty much the same touristy stuff with clothes, bags and knick-knacks. However, if you'd like to have a different experience, go to the animal section which is outside the main Chatuchak compound. A word of caution that the animals are not kept in the most comfortable cages nor are some of them treated well. However, there is a lot of illegal wildlife trade happening (we saw a stand within the main compound promoting that we do not buy any of the creatures) and we saw animals that shocked us (capybara, fennec foxes, etc.). Go for an experience, but don't buy the animals!

I like the market and various food :) I was able to get a quality shoes at affordable rates. You will need at least a day to cover the entire market. Only opens from Friday evening upto Sunday. We went on Saturday (our last day in Bangkok).
