Chatuchak Weekend Market, JJ Market, Jatujak Market, Chatuchak Market, all the same place. This vast Bangkok market packs up to 15,000 stalls and brings in close to half a million visitors every weekend. There is no hard-sell, prices are realistic and a quick haggle will produce some worthwhile bargains. Chatuchak Weekend Market is the ideal place to pick up local handicrafts and collectibles unlike the mass produced junk sold throughout Bangkok’s tourist areas.
Be aware this ‘open-air’ market is extremely hard to navigate and in higher heats will get sweaty. It is best to turn up to see what you find rather than searching for a needle in a haystack.
The most convenient route to find Chatuchak Weekend Market is by underground (MRT) arriving at Kamphaeng Phet station (not Chatuchak Park station). It can also be found a short walk from the Skytrain (BTS) Mo Chit station.
Opening Hours: 09.00 – 18.00 Saturday and Sunday
Location: Chatuchak Area – BTS / MRT: Mo Chit / Kamphaeng Phet – Price: Budget
