Excellent day trip in Bangkok. The Chatuchak Weekend market has everything food, clothing, animals, souvenirs, etc.. Unlike other markets located in south east Asia, the quality of a lot of the items here is fairly good and you will not be harassed by the shop owners. The market is easily accessed by the Bangkok Skytrain (BTS). Take the BTS to the last stop which is Mo Chit and the markets are a two minute stroll from the station. You can also take the underground MRT to the market as well. This is a perfect place to feed on local cuisine and buy some souvenirs for yourself and your friends and family back home. By far the best market I have been to in Southeast Asia.Recommended for:

Chatuchak Market is a good introduction of Bangkok life. Even though a lot of shops are aiming to get foreign tourists, the food, the people and the culture are charming. Great place to shop as well. Haggling is must. If you need light summer cloths, there are plenty of options. Good places to eat as well.Recommended for:

Probably the best overall market in all of Southeast Asia. It's not like a "local" market but one more geared towards everyone including foreigners and tourists. There is literally everything under the sun here. Lots of cool artsy things, endless clothes, great souvenirs, good prepared local food. Shop all day Saturday or Sunday.Recommended for:

This is (I'm told) the single largest market in Thailand, and if you're in Bangkok on a Saturday or Sunday, you owe it to yourself to take the Skytrain up to its terminal stop at Mo Chit (itself worth visiting just for the pun value of its name) to check it out. A fabulous place to shop for souvenirs at the end of a trip, there's also a truly amazing selection of cheap street food and clothing. On the streets and lanes surrounding you can also find sellers offering antiques of various kinds -- if you know your stuff, real finds can be had at bargain prices.Recommended for:

Day or night, you're going to be able to find a market just about in any busy neighborhood of Bangkok. This weekend market is one of the most touristed, but that doesn't mean you can't find some deals on souvenirs.Recommended for:

Oh man, I remember when Chatuchak was only for the locals. Now, it's a shopping mecca for tourists from all over the world. I don't know how I feel about that. I'm glad the local vendors and artists are getting a lot of business!Recommended for:

Oh, this place is wonderfully crazy. If it exists you can find it here. Organized into various section by product type, you simply have to wonder. Inevitebly something will catch your eye that you never knew existed yet you suddenly must have it.
Can get crazy hot or wet so plan accordingly. You can buy food here from vendors are restaurants. Look out for pick pockets and thieves, especially at busy pedestrian junctions.Recommended for:

the secret to get a great deal is to haggle more than manners says you should and know that 3 stalls down someone will be selling something similar and you may get your deal there. beware of heading straight to chatuchak if youre straight off the airplane as it is tiring and the sellers can spot someone who may be unfamiliar with how much something should really cost. as another review suggests, if you have a few weeks, go to the MBK mall, familiarise yourself with whats out there and if you feel like it take a trip to chatuchak on the skytrain (even just to see it!) to get your proper bargains as MBK is more expensive. this may be a long review but "the weekend market" is a great activity and well worth the effort-it's where REAL Thai people shop.

Must visit when you're in Bangkok! This place is sprawling with wares from furniture, home decor, handicrafts and fashion to even pets! Bargain deals are aplenty and be sure to try out the coconut ice cream to beat the heat and humidity!

a great market in bangkok. Alot of tourist come through these markets so the sales people know that they can charge abit more. A great shopping experience that will test your ability to haggle with a calculator.

Chatuchak, also called C2C, is a biggest flea market in Bangkok. They said weeekend are busy but from my experience it is busy throughout all day and night. I think it has a store for just about anything you're looking for.

Everything you need is here in this super huge market. I took the metro to the end of the line. However if you dont intend to buy a lot or in bulk, its better to stay in the city cause you have the cheap stuff too lets say at the pratunam market.Recommended for:
