If you know a thing or two about the concept of Thai markets, then you would have definitely heard about the Chatuchak Weekend Market, which is the undisputed champion of the category.
This is the largest market not just in Bangkok but all of Thailand and is alternatively known as the JJ Market. Within this market you will find more than 15,000 stalls selling a mind-boggling variety of goods.
It is truly impossible to tell you all of the items that are available in this market because the range is almost unimaginable. Shoppers that arrive knowing exactly what they desire tend to end up leaving with a variety of spontaneous purchases.
The Clock Tower
One of the most iconic aspects of the market is the clock tower, which was built to commemorate the 60th birthday of the late King, in 1987. If you’re staying at a nearby accommodation, such as Adelphi Suites, one of many providers of a service apartment in Bangkok, you can find the market by looking for the tower.
This is one of the essential factors to consider when exploring the Chatuchak Market because everything that’s up for sale has a price that can easily be decreased if you’re skilled at the art of haggling.
