Reviewed 15 June 2014

Coincide your visit to Bangkok on a Saturday or Sunday and revel in the vast complex called Chatuchak. It is a park but very few actually visit the nice green park next to the huge area that houses up to 14,000 stalls. Besides lots of Thai baht, one should be armed with patience, determination, a big empty bag to put in one's loot. The joy begins when shopkeepers open their stalls at 8 or 9 in the morning. Bargains can be had this early but we discovered that by 3 or 4 PM, the shopkeepers are tired and cranky that getting a decent bargain can be tough. There is a stall selling cold water or juice everywhere and the little eateries are a great attraction to patronize. One ends up with more things than one had actually planned to buy because the prices are definitely consumer friendly. No where in Asia can one find a diverse array of merchandise in just one stop: from antiques to second hand Levis, designer shorts to parakeets, orchids to suitcases. There is even a large section across the road for fruits and vegetables, furniture and great massage.

Next to the weekend market and easily reached by BTS Sytrain (Mo Chit) or MRT Underground Train (Chatuchak Park). There is a lake surrounded by grass upon which you can sit and doze. Rent a mat from a vendor at 20 baht - then just leave it and they come and collect it when they're ready. A good place to be when the sun goes down but remember to stand for the King when you hear the music!

A very big park with weekend market (chatuchak market). The park is very calm and lots of people came for picnic.Hence, it is very accessible by public transport. BTS (Mochit) and MRT (Chatuchak Park). Clean and fresh.
