One of my favorite things to do on a weekend in Bangkok is to start the day with street food while meandering to Chatuchak Weekend Market. Walk down any city street and you’ll find locals cooking all kinds of inventive things with grills, griddles, woks and steamers. From fresh fruits to barbecued squid to fried quail eggs to coconut pancakes (my favorite), there’s something to satisfy every appetite.
The Chatuchak Weekend Market is not be missed for its shopping and people watching. Sprawling 27 acres beyond the Mo Chit skytrain station, the market is a MAZE of housewares, crafts, clothing, shoes, jewelry, accessories, music and more food. My photos of the market show nothing of its size and energy, but take my word for it… Chatuchak is not to be missed if you’re inclined for a little mindless wandering and souvenir shopping. Just remember the number of the gate you entered so you can find your way home!
