Chatuchak Market – Bangkok’s Gigantic Weekend Market (ตลาดนัดจตุจักร) – Bangkok Video

Go to migrationology.com for more travel and street food! The Chatuchak Market (ตลาดนัดจตุจักร) in Bangkok is one of the city’s most beloved shopping destinations. With estimates of some 15000 stalls altogether (that includes all makeshift stalls and little pop-up stands as well), and attracting over 200000 shoppers on each day of the weekend, the market is the busiest and most well known in all of Thailand. Each Saturday and Sunday, local Thais and foreign tourists flock to the market in search of great deals and interesting finds. There’s really a section for just about anything you can imagine – and I’m sure you’ll find some things you’d have never imagined… ever! In this video I first get off the BTS skytrain and the market is just a 5 minute walk from there. Just follow the crowds and you’ll be lead straight to the gates of the market. Clothes and retro designed trendy fashion are all popular at the market, but one of the most interesting sections is the cat and dog and pets section. If you should happen to want to purchase a pet on you holiday in Bangkok, you can get one at JJ Market! One thing can be guaranteed on any visit, it will be hot! So make sure you stay hydrated when you visit. There are plenty of drink stands where you can grab a cold bottle of water or a beverage that I drank called “nam bai bua bok” which is pennyworth juice – healthy and refreshing. In Bangkok (and all throughout Thailand for that matter), food is never far away. All throughout

  23. Thank you very much for watching, glad you enjoyed this one! I agree, I think markets around the world have some of the most creative people – so many interesting little things and also the way people use whatever resources they have on hand to accomplish all tasks. I still don’t exactly know how those popsicles work so well!
