How To Get There Parking area. Chatuchak Weekend Market in the parking area, parking for 220 cars, which is part of the problem not enough parking spaces to meet the needs of operators who want to trade in the market even more. And to facilitate the unloading. Chatujak Weekend Market is located at Chatujak Park, and can be reached by many buses, or taxis. Now many tourists use the BTS Sky Train. The BTS train station (Mo Chit) is located on the east side of Chatujak Weekend Market and this is the most convenient way to come from other places .

The easiest way to get there is by either the sky train (BTS) or by the subway (MRT). Both go right to the market but the MRT is probably best as the exit at Kampengpet exits directly into Chatuchak and is probably the easiest.  If neither the BTS or MRT is an option, then just grab a taxi and tell them Chatuchak.

We've said you can get almost anything at Chatuchak market, but you won't find items like cameras, hi-fi, TVs etc. They are there, but is confined to collectable items and not the modern stuff.  Chatuchak is a great place for home furnishings. There's a lot of furniture for gardens and conservatories and a large number of shops selling teak coffee tables, cupboards, beds and bedside tables. Most shops at Chatuchak can provide export services  if you wish to buy items and ship them home. They'll arrange everything for you.

Places To Eat There are plenty of places to eat at Chatuchak. Some are indoors with air-conditioning but most are open air places selling pre cooked food that is served up with rice or noodles. If you find an air-conditioned restaurant we suggest you grab something to eat there just so you can cool down but if you don't mind the heat, then the other places serve freshly cooked food that shouldn't make you ill. Pre-cooked Thai food is more likely to be spicy. If you don't like or want spicy food, opt for fried rice or noodles. :

Best Time To Visit Try to avoid the hottest times of day and this is especially true for the months of March, April, May which are generally the hottest times of the year and walking around Chatuchak during the day during those months can potentially make you ill. If you can't avoid those months, get to the market early to avoid the crowds and the heat as much as possible but stalls tend not to open fully until around 9 or 10 am. There are plenty of places selling bottled water and cold drinks such as Pepsi, Coke or Fanta so don't worry about carrying water with you. Thai Style Arts & Crafts Wooden Buddhist Monks

Pros & Cons Pros: Chatuchak is huge and you can find all sorts of goodies which you might not be able to find elsewhere. There are large number of collectable items which you could very well sell on eBay or just keep for yourself.  If you like Thai furniture, especially Teak furniture, there are some very good shops which sell quality home and garden items which can easily be exported or shipped home. Cons: Because of its size, you might not get to see all you might like to see. Also, getting back to a stall you saw earlier could be next to impossible. Chatuchak market can get extremely busy and with the very narrow isles between the stalls, it can be very slow going so avoid taking a backpack as it will get in the way. Not only can it get very busy, it can also be one of the hottest places to be and this can make it an unpleasant experience.
