The Chatuchak Markets, or JJ Markets as we have always referred to them (I am not entirely sure why to be honest) are my number one shopping location in Bangkok. JJ is the world’s largest weekend market and is packed with stalls selling anything you can imagine from fashion, beauty products, and accessories to food, homewares, and even live animals. The market boasts a mix of old and new products.
What: Everything. the vintage section in particular is amazing.
How much: $ – $$$ This is the place to try out your bargaining skills. Remember there is Thai price and there is tourist price. If you are shopping with Thai friends send them in to bat for you to get a better deal.
Why: You cannot miss this experience. Get lost in this intoxicating market and find things you never even knew you wanted.
Where: 587/10 Kamphaeng Phet 2 Rd, Chatuchak, Bangkok.
