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.

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.

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.

You can find literally anything for sale here. It is perhaps the craziest of all the flea market/swap meet type of events that I have ever been to.

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!

You will get lost in this market. Embrace it, and let yourself get swallowed up in Bangkok's largest day market. It's a great place to buy clothing, souvenirs and other trinkets Buy and eat to your heart's content! (And make sure to drink lots of water).

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.

chatuchak market or JJ market only open on the weekends. they sell almost everything, like everything, seriously. from paintings, clothings, foods, furnitures, you name it! and they will have it delivered to your home country. so you don't need to think about the shipping, just concentrate where to spend your money next. :D
