6 of Bangkok’s best markets just for you

Frenetic Bangkok can be overwhelming for shoppers, but here’s a handy guide to help you find the best markets for you.

1. Atujak Green

Also known as JJ Green, this night market is part vintage flea market, part local drinking hangout.

2. Chatuchak Market

Covering 10 hectares, this is the world’s largest weekend market selling just about everything!

3. New Rot Fai Market

A buzzy night bazaar selling antiques, kitsch trinkets and street food.

4. Pak Khlong Talat

This bright flower market is open 24 hours. Even if you’re not in the, er, market for flowers, it’s a fun sight to see.

5. Patpong Night Market

Another night market, popular Patpong is located near the go-go bars with plenty of souvenirs, fakes, DVDs and cheap clothing on offer. But because it’s so popular, the first price is usually astronomical, so be sure to bargain hard!

6. Bang Nam Phueng Floating Market

Around 23 kilometres south of the city, this small floating market is only accessible by taxi with most visitors being Thai locals. It’s a great place for an authentic slice of local life, with fresh food and traditional snacks on offer.
