Bangkok 122 – Chatuchak Weekend Market

I lost count of how many times I’d been
to this flea market, and I don’t think I will ever get tired of visiting
this weekend market. Since it was only our second day in Bangkok and we
were pretty much energized, we took the BTS and got into the market by
9am. After a quick breakfast at the chicken noodle soup,
we started our shopping frenzy without further delay. We spent over 8
hours there from 9am til 5pm, until the market was about to close and
the sun was setting. Thanks to my FitFlop,
I survived the gruesome all day walking in Chatuchak Weekend Market
without feeling much pain on my legs, unlike my previous visits whereby
my legs were so pain I had to leave the market early after all those
walking.
Most of the fashionable and
better looking items (clothes and accessories) are located at Section
2-4, with some other stuff (clothes, accessories, home decor,
handicrafts) all jumbled up in the middle of the market at Section
10-25. I still couldn’t finish walking the whole Chatuchak Weekend
Market after so many times I’d been there.
This time around I think I managed
to control myself better, without going crazy with all the shopping. But
too bad for my girl friend who was there for the first time, she
totally blew all her budget that day, though she left as a happy girl
with all the new bought clothes, accessories and home stuff. Well so did
I, left as a happy girl with all my new stuffs….           
Getting There: Chatuchak/Jatujak
market is adjacent to the Kamphaengphet station of the MRT Blue Line,
or about a 5-minute walk from the Mo Chit station of the BTS Skytrain
Sukhumvit Line and another MRT station, Chatuchak Park.
