Chatuchak Market Bangkok - Jatujak Weekend Markets or JJ

If you have been seeking shoppers’ heaven, you have just found it!

Chatuchak weekend market in Bangkok is shoppers’ paradise, offering over 8,000 stalls selling incredible items at prices you simply will not believe until you see them.

Plan on spending at least the morning or evening wandering these stalls, as many people on guided tours complain at being whisked away before having enough time to ferret out the bargain of the century.

Everything from designer clothes and fashion accessories, to antiques, silks and ceramics. You will find it all here.

Jatujak Weekend Market (often called "Chatuchak" market) is very near the intersection of Phahonyothin and Ladprao, on Phahonyothin Road and fairly close to the northern bus station.

Chatuchak market is the world’s largest weekend market and covers an area of 70 rai (112,000 sq meters).

This superb market is extremely popular with Thais as well as foreigners. And there are bargains to be had for all. Many places operate a double pricing system, charging one price for tourists (falang) and another (lower) price for locals.

Many thousands of people flock to Jatujak market every weekend, as just about anything you can think of is available here, at a fraction of the price you would pay back home.

Most of the traders here are from local factories (large and small), and sell interesting Thai made trinkets and fabrics which make ideal souvenirs and gifts to take home for your family and friends.

Buddhist amulets, ceramic ware of all kinds, dolls and hill tribe outfits are all available.

Chatuchak/Jatujak is also a large open public park, beautifully landscaped with exotic plants and palms.

It is located opposite the Kamphaenphet 3 entrance to the market. Most of the food vendors and café/restaurants are located in the Dream Section of the market.

Here you can buy a refreshing cool drink, or green tea to give you enough stamina to return to the market for another look around. The Dream Section/Food Shops area is a fairly new, but very popular addition to the Chatuchak market.

There are also many banks near the Kamphaengphet 2 Entrance, where you can make use of one of the many ATM’s to stock up on your money before splurging on more goodies from the market.

Just to wet your appetite, here is a brief list of just some of the many items available from Chatuchak/Jatujak, Clothing, including T-shirts, skirts, shoes and designer products, Art, music, musical instruments, paintings, Accessories, necklaces, rings, ear-rings, eyeglasses (including reading glasses), silver jewellery, Wickerwork, wood sculptures and celadon ceramics, Lacquer ware, antiques, images of Buddha, coins and stamps.
