Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok



The Chatuchak Weekend Market
The Chatuchak Weekend Market is the giant among Bangkok's markets with 8000 stands and over 200,000 visitors. Because of its size, tourists should only go there if they really enjoy spending hours browsing and shopping. In any case be sure to get there early. Around noon it gets to be very hot and humid under the roofs of the stand passageways. Don't plan to do too much either. You don't have to see "everything". You should take a taxi back to your hotel, for after hours of shopping and browsing the ride back with the Skytrain could be slightly exhausting. You can read more about the Chatuchak Market here.
