Chatuchak’s weekend markets are legendary! Whether you love food or love hunting for bargains, Chatuchak’s sprawling outdoor and indoor bazaar has something for everyone. The market is broken down into sections and soi’s. Antiques & Collectibles, Clothing (by far the most prolific), Eating & Drinking, Decor & Housewares, Plants & Gardening, there is even a section for Pets & Animals. To get to Chatuchak, take the BTS to Mo Chit (final stop) or take the MRT to Chatuchak and take the Market exit.We recommend getting their early as it can get VERY hot after midday!
MBK Shopping Centre
If can’t find what you want at Chatuckhak, you will surely find it at MBK! Whether you’re looking for cellphones, IT , clothes, bags, computers, jewellery, food, MBK has everything. Do be careful about buying genuine items, but if a brand label isn’t important to you, then MBK is your paradise. You can also catch live Muay Thai fights outside the National Stadium.
It is very easy to get to MBK, it even has a BTS exit leading directly into the 2nd floor. Hop on the BTS until you reach National Stadium station (final stop).

Thailand is often called as kitchen of world, and the breadbasket of Asia. The food of Thailand bursts with flavour, and very little is served without lashings of chilli, garlic, lemongrass and spices.
