Chatuchak Weekend Market Reviews
Last day in Bangkok and thought we’d head to “JJ” weekend market to see what all the fuss was about. Happily spent 6 hours meandering around this enormous place, purchased shirts (see photo for... more »
Loved it, had an absolute ball, went there with the attitude of "seen one market seen them all" but this was an experience, not just tat and massages, it had everything and more but it is crushingly..... more »
Crazy market! Get a map, because it’s easy to get lost. Something for everyone here. Pretty fair prices, and if you find the right store you will love it. There are both cheap things, and amazing stuff you can’t afford. Like a life-size horse made of scrap pieces of wood. Or a slab of rock made into a 8 foot long table.
Oh my god, what a HUGE market. This place is very big, we spend like 4-5 hours, we don’t even cover 50% of the place. The prices are very cheap compare to other markets, know your price first before you go here, you could go to asiatique and other night market to get the idea of the prices. I believe the price is very cheap so if you don’t have time to go check out other places, it is still fine. The markets has everything here, so just take your time and look around. The market gets even more crowded around the afternoon. Drink a lot of cold water or beer, beer is cheap but still overprice from the street vendor. My daughter love the coconut ice cream. Our plan is only to experience the market, we ended up buy so many stuff, and most of the stalls only accept cash. We all try the reflexology massage, it is very good and in the air-con Ed room which very relaxing and we feel recharge after the session. we also try Spanish food near district 8, they have a DJ in the booth. Last but not least, just relax and enjoy the market. There is always tomorrow.
