How to start the weekend in Bangkok? For us, it was the second day (Saturday) of our holiday in Bangkok. And after a fulfilling buffet the previous night at Baiyoke Sky Hotel, we needed to burn some calories.
How to Get to Chatuchak Market
Chatuchak Market is on Kamphaeng Phet 2 Road, Chatuchak, Bangkok.
In addition to taking Grab or taxi around Bangkok, you can also ride the train, and get off at Kamphaeng Phet MRT station on the MRT blue line or the Saphan Khwai on the BTS Sukhumvit Line.
There are 3 entrances:

Below are photos of Chatuchak Market in 2018. Sharing memories and recommendations of my 2018 holiday in Bangkok with ya’ll. Even though photos are dated (old) but the content are relevant.
Grab a quick bite before starting the self-walking tour in the market.
Most parts of the market have sheltered walkways, so you can shop under protection from the sun and the rain. In the covered sections, you can find stalls that sell flowers, spices, clothes, and more.
Not to be missed for the gram is the clock tower in the middle of Chatuchak Market.
After a long walk around the market, it’s time to cool down from the heat. Why not end the journey with coconut ice cream!
