Chatuchak (or Jatujak) Weekend Market, which moved to its present location in 1982, is the largest market in the world and offers a prodigious array of goods such as household items, clothing, Thai handicraft, collectibles, religious artifacts, foods, and live animals.
With over 15,000 stalls and between 200,000 and 300,000 visitors every Saturday and Sunday, shopping at Chatuchak Market is a truly unforgettable experience during which your bargaining skills can be put to the test. Do not forget to take along a small towel as the heat can be rather challenging when exploring this giant maze.
The market features several banks with ATM and currency exchange, as well as popular cafes and restaurants. Nearby attractions include the very pleasant Chatuchak Park and JJ Mall, a shopping centre with different kinds of stores.
Getting there from Novotel Bangkok on Siam Square is extremely easy as the BTS Skytrain’s Sukhumvit Line runs directly from Siam Square to the market’s Mo Chit Station. Chatuchak Market is also adjacent to MRT (subway) Kamphaengphet Station. Only a 15-minute travel from this Bangkok hotel.
