Chatuchak weekend market

This world’s largest market is commonly known among Thais as JJ (jay jay). With more than 15,000 retailers in 27 sections, occupying some 27 acre space, what makes Chatuchak busy every weekend is not only the fun of bargaining prices but an incredible variety of merchandise it has to offer, from latest fashion items and vintage decor finds to Thai crafts and teak wood tables. Section 1 gets you books and magazines, while Sections 2-4 see shops of young fashion designers. Vintage clothing items are in Sections 5-6 while art pieces are in Sections 7-9. Sections 10-24 gets you a mix of miscellaneous stuff, and you will find tables, chairs, lamps and decor items in Sections 25-27.
