Chatuchak Weekend Market, Bangkok

Northern Bangkok's biggest draw is the Chatuchak Weekend Market.

Northern Bangkok's biggest draw is the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Spread over 35 acres of indoor and outdoor space, it is packed with more than 9,000 shops and stalls selling antiques, Buddha amulets, handicrafts, clothes and furniture at low prices.

After World War II, the market was established around Sanam Luang in Rattanakosin, but when it started growing inordinately, it was moved to its current location in 1978. It started out as a market for cheap bargains, but over the years has also become a haven for niche shops that charge a premium. Keep an eye on your belongings here as pickpockets work in the crowds, and avoid Chatuchak on rainy days as the roofs and drains here aren't quite up to a tropical downpour. It is very easy to lose your way here, so keep an eye out for the Clock Tower in the middle of the complex, to get a sense of direction and retrace your path.
