How to Shop Around
In a space that is the size of five football fields, Chatuchak Weekend Market will feel overwhelming at first. Organize your time based on your shopping needs. You may need to “dig around” a little bit to weed out the touristy trinkets.
Start on the outside of the market and wander your way down the alleys. Take your time, navigate the crowds and take in the full experience. When the heat gets unbearable, which it will, duck inside one of the numbered covered alleys and continue the exploration.
Clothing and Accessories
Clothes dominate and this by far one of the largest sections at Chatuchak Market. Sections 2 to 6 and sections 10 to 26 are filled with styles for all fashion tastes.
From stylish and independent wear, to Thai souvenirs and children’s clothes, you will find everything you need for gifts or for yourself.
As you look around one thing you will notice are tourists pushing around large pieces of luggage. That’s for all the shopping. Don’t be afraid to bring a large empty suitcase if shopping is your priority.
