Markets in Bangkok

Chatuchak Weekend Market
Basically all of Bangkok is one big market. You'll always run into thousands of merchants on the streets offering you their goods. The real plus-point of these markets is that they are filled with tons of cookshops and stands with food and drinks. The humid warm air, the smell of sate skewers usually grilled over charcoal and the masses of people give the whole experience an exciting Asian flair.

Here you will find a small selection of the best known and largest Bangkok markets. A visit to one of these markets shouldn't be missing from your travel itinerary! Go ahead and practice haggling and bartering with your travel companion! It is an absolute must at the markets. Here you can read more on the topic of "Haggling". And another obvious tip: keep an eye on your valuables and don't take too much cash with you. We hope you have a lot of fun at the markets:
