Chatuchak Weekend Market

With the size of a few square kilometers and estimated more than 15.000 booths is claims to be one of the biggest markets in the world. In the 27 sections of this huge market there isn't anything that you can find. If you see something interesting, we suggest that you buy it right away as you might not find the same booth later again, simply because the confusing labyrinth of small alleys. As the name suggest it is opened on Saturdays and Sundays from 6am to 6pm, some shops a bit later. Get there with BTS or MRT to the stations Mo Chit or Chatuchak Park respectively.
