Chatuchak, or the weekend market, occupies a massive 36 acre of land which is approximately 88 football fields! And there are about 3000 stalls in this compound ranging from clothes, pet animal, food stalls, household items to oil paintings.
This area comes to live every weekend where throngs of visitors both local and tourists would visit to get the best bargains.
Other than taking a taxi there are 2 options to get there, MRT (blue line) or BTS (light green line). Comparing both BTS is a quicker option to get there as it cuts through all the landmarks.
BTS to Chatuchak
The closest station to the market is Mochit. From the station it is a 5 minutes walk to the market.
Once you get off from the station platform look for the sign which directs you to Chatuchak and it should take you to exit 1.
Once you take exit 1 you will see the steps which brings you to the ground level.
At the bottom of the steps there is an opening to a park, walk right in because it is a less crowded route to the market.
Once you step into the compound you’ll be greeted with rows and rows of stalls selling nick-nacks. I’ll leave you with pictures of what you can expect. If you interested to get there by MRT click on this link.
