Chatuchak Market on a Friday

Unfortunately we will not be in Bangkok on a Sat or Sun but we are wondering if the market is worth a visit on a Friday?

If not are there any other markets on a Friday?

Some stands are open, but large areas of the market are closed down and dead. You'll be dodging vehicles stocking up for the big Saturday shopping day. So, yes it's open, but with none of the atmosphere of the chaotic and colourful Weekend Market.

I always head there on Fridays. I find that there is an almost endless supply of senseless stuff, even on Fridays.

Then again, I only go to buy things, not take in the atmosphere. Living here for a few years, hanging out in big mobs has lost its appeal.

We also buy most of our garden plants and supplies on Wednesdays ad Thursdays.
