This is the market where you can get "ANYTANG" you want. Mostly stalls full of bootleg merchandise, such as fake Rolex watches, Nike shirts and sweats, and any name brand product you can possibly think of; you can also eat, get your feet massaged or just walk around people watching. There are also a plethora of Sex Clubs. The ground floor clubs are just go-go bars, the upper floors are where the slightly more risque behind-closed-doors erotic cabarets take place. One warning- there are many guys around that will try incessantly to hawk you into their club, but will eventually leave you alone as you keep walking. If you DO go to one of the Sex clubs, make sure that they DON'T have a cover charge!
Located opposite the old northern bus terminal along Phahonyothin
Chatuchak market is one of the largest markets in the world. Located opposite the old northern bus terminal along Phahonyothin it is a must for any traveller coming to Bangkok who has shopping on his/her mind.
The market is only open at the weekends, Saturday and Sunday from 7am until late. Some of the stalls do open during the week but not sufficient to warrant a visit.
Getting to Chatuchak has become a lot easier since the Skytrain system opened and now you can simply take the Skytrain to the end terminal called Morchit which is exactly where the market is located.
This is a small area with lots of excellent shops can be found. The Hard Rock Cafe and CM2 disco are also in the vicinity.
