Chatuchak is the biggest outdoor market in Thailand. If you plan to visit Bangkok for shopping and have done some researches, I am sure that you know this market. It is a weekend market that offers you 15,000 stalls selling almost everything that you want. This market is popular among locals and also tourists.
Bangkok’s Chinatown is located at Yaowarat Road and nowadays it also covers Charoenkrung Road. It is one of the popular tourist attractions in Bangkok. You can plan a day trip to visit Chinatown. At night, the area becomes a great place for street foods.
If you are a tourist planning to go shopping at Chatuchak in the morning, and then have dinner at Chinatown and want to know how to get from Chatuchak to Chinatown, this blog post could help you.
Chatuchak connects with BTS Skytrain and MRT Subway, while Chinatown does not connect with any rapid transit system. So, taking taxi is recommended especially if you come in group. It would take around 30-40 minutes to commute between these two places depending on the traffic.
If you do not want to take taxi, MRT Subway is another great option. You can take MRT Subway from Chatuchak Weekend Market (either Chatuchak Park MRT station or Kamphaeng Phet MRT station) to Hua Lamphong MRT station. Then, you have to walk to Yaowarat Road. The station is not close to Chinatown, but it is possible to walk.
