Chatuchak Weekend Market is the most popular outdoor market in Bangkok and also in Thailand. The market offers visitors a unique experience of shopping. You can find almost everything you want here. This market is famous for not only tourists, but also local. I myself visited this market for the first time when I was a teenager and until now this market is still be my choice when I go shopping with friends. Chatuchak weekend market is easy to access because it connects with both BTS Skytrain and MRT Subway.
If you get to Chatuchak Weekend Market by BTS Skytrain, get off at Mo Chit station and take exit 1. Then, walk around 5 minutes. You will see the market.
If you get to Chatuchak Weekend Market by MRT Subway, you will have 2 options. First option is get off at Chatuchak Park station, and take exit 1. Then, walk around 5 minutes. The walking path is the same one as if you take BTS Skytrain. Another option is get off at Kampheng Phet station and take exit 1. Then, you will be in the middle of the market.
It seems like the last option is the best one, but actually it depends on where in the market that you want to go. Since this market is huge, it is good to know what you want to buy first. Then, see the section map in order to know where exactly in the market that you want to go. And finally choose the station to get off.
Well, if you go there just for a unique experience, get off at Kampheng Phet station is highly recommended. Enjoy shopping!
