Everything Imaginable at Chatuchak Weekend Market
Would you like a baby bunny, dressed neatly in a floral dress? What about a bowl of fried quail eggs, for a small snack? Artwork, a new leather satchel, shoes of any kind or even a pet squirrel? You can find all of this, and so much more, at Bangkok's Chatuchak Weekend Market. As the name implies, it's only open on Saturdays and Sundays, and is easily accessible by public transportation. When you go, plan to stay for a while-- this market twists and turns, and seems to continue on indefinitely. It has a little bit of everything that you could imagine, and thousands of items that you couldn't dream up if you tried. The food stalls and markets within Chatuchak Market are plentiful and fresh, so come with an appetite. Make this an all-day event, and midday, be sure and grab an hour long Thai massage, which should run you only about $8-10 USD.
