Also known by the locals as JJ Market, Chatuchak Weekend Market is the worlds largest outdoor market. Spanning over an area of a whopping 35 acres, the Market houses over 10 000 stalls and shops. Here you could get your hands on anything from electrical appliances, handicrafts, books, souvenirs and even live animals! Despite being called a weekend market, it is open from Wednesdays – Sundays from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm. The best times to visit the market during the opening hours and late evenings if you wish to avoid the crowd. If you are planning to buy goods visit here during evening hours and try to bargain with the vendors since they would usually charge more for tourists.

Patpong Night Market

Being a bustling city that never sleeps, Bangkok is home to a variety of night markets. Amongst them, travellers should not miss checking out the Patpong night market. This market is famous for selling replicas of products that are manufactured by famous brands. Many are so well made that is very hard to spot between the goods sold here and the real deal! The market also features stalls that sell everything from books, souvenirs, electronic items, clothing goods and accessories. Since the market is usually crowded make sure that you do not bring your valuables along this tour and also ensure that wear your bag in front since there could be pickpockets. The vendors here also tend to charge tourists more so, don't be shy to haggle for the prices.
