Mother of all markets
The Chatuchak Weekend Market is also called Jatujak and is nicknamed ‘Mother of All Markets’. By metro you get off at the ‘Chatuchak park stop’ and then it speaks for itself which direction you have to walk to. Several signs show you the way or you just follow the people who all go the same way. The market opens at ten o’clock in the morning and because we were there quite early, the hustle and bustle was not too bad!
Shoes, animals and massages
We walked around here for a few hours, which was enough for us because at noon it gets really crowded. Are you looking for something special? This market has it all: clothes, shoes, furniture, bags, jewelry, animals, food and massages. On several blogs, it’s recommended to dive into how the system of this market works.
You don’t expect it when you walk around, but there’s a system in Chatuchak. The market has one main street and from there you can take several side streets, the ‘Soi’. The streets are divided into 27 sections with each section having a theme, such as clothing or souvenirs. We didn’t know this but decided to walk into random streets and see where we ended up. This also works very well, as long as you know how to get back to the main street.
