Chatuchak Weekend Market aka Jatujak or short as J.J. Market is a weekend market (Opens on Saturday and Sunday) span over 35 acres of land. Rumoured to have approximately 15,000 stalls – 20,000 stalls. :O That’s why Chatuchak is also known as mother of all market! :)
If you don’t like bargain hunting, then Chatuchak is not really for you. Shopping in Chatuchak is all about bargaining! At the same time, I realise that some of the stall owners don’t really want to bargain price with you! Just a gentle reminder, as the market is pretty huge, if you see something you like, and you are o.k. with the price, just get it. Never, never tell yourself, you’ll come back. Cos chances are, you might be at the other end of the market or worse still, you don’t even know where you are! LOL
Getting to Chatuchak Weekend Market. Take BTS and head towards Mo Chit. Exit at N8 – Mo Chit Station and follow the crowd towards the stairs on your right. Once you walk down the stairs, majority of the crowd will walk straight. But try to see a small turning into your right, which will direct you to Chatuchak Park. Go in and you’ll see the sign “shortcut to Chatuchak”. As usual, follow the crowd! :)
Happy Shopping! Picture time! :)
