Chatuchak Weekend Market Reviews
Nope, just nope. Super dirty and polluted. Overheated and exhausted animals in small crowded cages. Nothing special at all, simply dirtier than regular markets and with several selling the same items. more »
Very famous place, but to crowded with people and tourists. Also we found that many staff was too overpriced with comparing to another places in Bangkok. more »
It's a unique experience. You get to see local producers. From clothes to souvenirs the market covers it all. It's a pretty huge place so better to start exploring as early as possible which you'll get ample time for exploring, avoid sun as well as crowds of people. Collect a map at the entrance so you'll not get lost. You should look into the quality of products thoroughly and bargain. Must try: the coconut ice cream, it was just AWESOME!
One of the most wonderful places to enjoy the weekend. It's everything there - starting from souvenirs and Thai themed clothing items, continuing with beautiful home decorations, amazingly decorated fish tanks and just anything one can imagine to get from a market. The most beautiful it becomes shortly before the sun is setting down and when you have finished your shopping day. There are many nice food options, drinks are available like on every corner. Every shopper's paradise on earth.
