And who wants to get lost and miss the good parts? The biggest weekend market in Thailand is organized and separated into zones. Below you will find one of the best maps of Chatuchak Weekend Market I found on the internet. Remember, Natujak is separated into zones, each specializing on the items and goods sold. You can get plenty of maps online or at Thai tourist info centers. As you can see on the map, zones 2, 5 and 6 are all on the same side of the market.
Chatuchak Market in Bangkok – Bangkok Weekend Market
Good luck on that. I recommend starting off at zone 2 simply because the Kamphaeng Phet MRT subway station is practically right next to zone 2. Just be sure to use subway station Exit 2. This is exit 2 of the Kamphaeng Phet subway station, very close to zone 2…. Now if you take a good look at the map below, you will see many other sections also selling clothes and Thai handicraft, particularly right in the center of Chatuchak. Zone 2 is perhaps one of the most visited section of Chatuchak Weekend Market.
Thai locals have a voracious appetite for the new.
They love to seek the unique and share it on Facebook. I love the whole entire market. As long as it fits in your jatujjak of course. Because the worst thing you can do is getting back on that plane and regretting you never bought it.
Finally items in zone 2 are a bit more expensive compared to the rest of JJ Market because the items are a little more unique.
In this zone you will find used clothing, particularly denim. You can also find stalls selling brand name jeans as well with labels. Even though Bangkok is hot mwp humid through the year Thai locals love denim wear. If it looks good on them and the price is right they have to have a pair of jean pant or jacket. Prices for clothes in this zone are reasonable though there is space to get discounts as long as you buy more items. You might even find brand name clothing too.
Chatuchak Weekend Market is an incredible place filled with lots to see, eat and of course shop. Jenny Gonzales May 16, 8: Warren May 17, 7: Most definitely you will find all types of tableware in Chatuchak. I also recommend heading over past JJ Mall there is another outdoor shop, very big selling even more plates of all shapes and sizes.
April van Berkum May 24, Do you know what section we could look for the stainless crafted cutlery? We bought jahujak cool sets there years ago and would like another set.
Often 6 pieces in one set and you can buy 6 or how ever many settings you want. Warren May 26, 8: Take a look at the JJ Market map on this post. April Van Berkum May 28, 3: Brenda June 4, 4: Not worth to visit at all.
