Chatuchak Market Bangkok was one of my first markets I went to in BAngkok. It ultimately led me to be obsessed by all the Markets in Bangkok. The first time I went it had so many shops in every little nook of this giant Maze of small store fronts. I loved the secondhand clothes/hats/shoes the best. There are so many unique things you can find in these shops from travelers across the globe. Such a great experience and it is straight off the MRT as well. So there are no excuses not to go!!!

Food at Chatuchak Market Bangkok

In this market, you can access over 500 food stalls offering variety of mouth-watering food dishes, continental food and seafood. Shopping in the rainy season can be difficult because most of the stalls do not have extensive roofing to avoid rainwater. Moreover, the market can be overcrowded at times that can make it difficult to accommodate everyone under the roofs.

  1. Such a great find. Im currently planning my gap year around and this has helped greatly.

    Thanks

  2. I visited a good number of markets on my last visit and I enjoyed this market a lot. I was actually surprised by the wide variety of items they sell. While it wasn’t my favorite, it is up there. When I went, it was a bit crowded so it was hard to look at everything but the items I found and purchased, I am still enjoying today and I visited a year ago. A great find to say the least!

  3. You know how can I rent a small space in Chatuchak market? Thanks a lot!!

  4. Hey John, I assume by your name “John”, you are not thai born citizen? The work permit would be my first question to you. Although, I assume you already know the trials and tribulations on this battle?
