    Saturday/ Sunday. Take the sukhumvit line to the end (Mo Chit) and follow the crowds from there. You can find anything you want there- food stalls are awesome. Tourists- lots of souvenirs and this is ...  more »

    A good place to shop under a single roof (or say the sky)! These handicrafts and clothing are available to shop in other shopping malls and at more or less the same price. Yet it it is enjoyable here....  more »

    Very spacious, I know, but it's really like a maze-les-Bains-les-Bains stone. The following would be a cheaper place to wait if you owe it to yourself to rip. Surprisingly decent quality though not locate ㅋ ㅋ ㅋ with some clothes in the district. Affordable la no apparent was not negotiable. Hungry market at a local restaurant, sanitation is not sure, and once it was delicious. The chicken dish without the support of oil tried to sue. Chicken fried rice with two coming up to 80 Bad eating little more than long. I'm sure your blah blah Sutton wrapped up over the attractions could go straight to the Bts footage is not difficult.

    Famous market, basically cheaper than other tourist spots because you can bargain more Space is tight and it's ridiculously hot. It's difficult to find food so better to eat someplace else ( I haven't found any good one as well). I ate and I had a stomachache due to the cleanliness I suppose. Buy your souvenirs here and prepare to bring your small luggage if you were to shop. If you're buying for business there's a logistic services provider as well.

    One of the best market in Thailand! You have to come here to eat good, shop cheap and get a relaxing massage. Be sure to bargain because that is part of the thrill! Bring a hat and drink up during the lunch crowd because it can get really hot and crowded. I would definitely recommend this duck leg noodle if you pass by. Huge leg portion at a good price! One downside is that if it rains, prepare to just find a shelter and wait till the rain goes away Or bring an umbrella!

    Huge market, where you can buy lots of stuff. However, be ready to bargain. It may pay off. Dirt is everywhere, and food mostly not sanitary. Again, you can talk to the vendors and ask them for a fresh batch. If you're consistent enough and you talk with a smile, you'll get it. Recommended for street market lovers. I personally liked it

    Nice market that offers you diverse items ranging from personal care to house decorations and that too at cheap rate. I bought a nice rope bag for myself at a rate which cannot be offered by any other market in the world. Also I bought t-shirt and shower gel. This is an ideal place for buying cosmetics, soaps and perfumes. It is available in different fragrances. If you are in Bangkok, a visit to chatuchak market is MUST. There are so many shops, so if you are travelling in group, then everybody would end up buying something for themselves, that is the beauty of this place 😀

    Loved visiting this place on a Saturday. It was quite busy but tons of fun navigating the many lanes and seeing just about anything for sale. Prices are good and there are not a lot, if any, high pressure sale tactics. No one was trying to lure me over to their stall and when I did stop and look I felt no pressure if didn't want to buy anything. Most prices were up for negotiation. There are a few nooks with sitting spaces. Plenty of food and drink available to buy if you want a break. You can spend a whole day here easily.
