"Avoid the crowds by arriving early in the morning and head straight to Section 2 for the best selection of unique handicrafts and souvenirs. Don't forget to bargain with a smile, as it's part of the fun and can lead to great deals!"

If you're looking for an authentic shopping experience away from the bigger, fancy malls in Bangkok, then we'd recommend trying the Chatuchak Weekend Market! 

It's one of the world's largest weekend markets, and the enormous size is the main selling point - covering an area of 35 acres, it's worth paying a visit if you're planning some tours in Bangkok.

There are over 8000 stalls ( some even say it's 15000 stalls!) selling everything you're looking for, along with many things you never knew you wanted, going from antiques and Thai art to food, local souvenirs, Buddhist amulets, wooden furniture, hand made decorated flowers, plants, ceramic wares, clothes, silk, etc. Don't expect a quiet shopping trip here because  over 200,000 people visit Chatuchak Market every weekend!

It's almost impossible to cover all stalls in one day so it's best  to check a map of the market before you go, so you know which sections you want to visit!

Don’t let the name fool you – this may be Chatuchak Weekend Market but there are some sections of the market open on weekdays too. Having said this, the main market that sells everything under the sun is only open on weekends. The official opening hours are as follows:

  • Wednesday and Thursday – Plants and Flowers only – 6:00am to 6:00pm
  • Friday – Wholesale Day – 6:00am to 6:00pm
  • Saturday and Sunday – Main market days, everything available – 6:00am to 6:00pm

Best time to visit:

The best time to go shopping is in the morning, or when the market first opens. Not only to avoid the afternoon heat but also because many shopkeepers believe that the first sale of the day brings them good luck, so  they might even bring the price down for you!
