Chatuchak Weekend Market, Chatuchak

BANGKOK | Chatuchak Weekend Market is one of Bangkok’s most popular spots for visitors to the city, and as you walk through the market it’s easy to see why. The market, which opened in 1942, is the largest in Thailand. Also known as JJ Market, there’s over 15,000 stalls and 11,000 vendors, selling all sorts of things.

There are distinct sections of the market to help make navigating the sprawling space easier. Whether it’s art, furniture, antiques, food, or anything else, there’s something for you at Chatuchak Weekend Market. Here’s how the sections are split up:

  • Clothing and accessories (sections 2–6, 10–26)
  • Handicrafts (sections 8–11)
  • Ceramics (sections 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 25)
  • Furniture and home decor (sections 1,3,4,7,8)
  • Food and beverage (sections 2, 3, 4, 23, 24, 26, 27)
  • Plants and gardening (sections 3, 4)
  • Art and galleries (section 7)
  • Pets and accessories (sections 8, 9, 11, 13)
  • Books (sections 1, 27)
  • Antiques and collectibles (sections 1, 26)
  • Miscellaneous and used clothing (sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 22, 25, 26)

Prices aren’t fixed and bartering is common and expected. As a general rule of thumb, start with an offer of around 30% of the asking price and go from there. The market opens at 9am, and many vendors consider the first sale of the day to be lucky, so arriving early is a great idea. Not only will you have a better chance of getting a better price, you’ll also beat the rush.
