Chatuchak has a wide variety of amazingly delicious options. I recommend you to visit as early as possible to avoid crowds as the market will get super busy in the afternoon time. And if you can’t make it in the morning – then you still could come here around 4 pm. But it would be better to have a few hours for a visit. It’s almost impossible to have a quick shopping run and leave. Once you entered – you will want to fully experience the market! And if you need some rest of your shopping adventure, or if you came with family or a girlfriend – then take a walk to the pet section, where you will see not only puppies and kittens, but many other quite unexpected and exotic animals.
The easiest and cheapest way to reach the market is to use the sky train or the subway. If you take the sky train, exit at MoChit BTS station If you come by the subway, exit at the Chatuchak Park MRT station and walk through the park following the crowd.
