Chatuchak is synonymous with one thing, the mother of all markets, the biggest in Asia—Chatuchak Weekend Market. Covering 35 acres of land with over 15,000 stalls and more than 200,000 visitors every Saturday and Sunday, conquering this massive market is no easy feat! A visit to the Thai capital would not be complete without a day or two browsing here, because ... More>a few hours simply won't do the job.
Incredible bargains are the norm, and you can count on finding just about anything from antiques, arts and crafts to reproductions, vintage clothing, pets, flowers, fruit, decorative items and fashion accessories. Naturally, this is Thailand and no attraction would be complete without an abundance of food and drink and Chatuchak happily obliges. Nowadays the market has an on-site shipping service available allowing you to send whatever you buy back home without having to lug it to your Chatuchak hotel. Believe us, you won't come away empty handed.
There's much more to the area than just this mega-market though. Chatuchak Park is the second largest in Bangkok, and offers the perfect opportunity to escape from the city's hustle and bustle. The area offers easy access to the rest of Bangkok with Metro and Sky Train connections too. From our Chatuchak hotels, seek out a little known secret which has emerged in the area recently—Talaad Rot Fai is another outdoor market located by the train tracks which specializes in selling vintage anything!
