Shops and Local Delicacies at Chatuchak Weekend Market (Jatujak Market), Bangkok..


A trip to Bangkok is never completed without shopping at one of the world's largest weekend markets, Chatuchak Weekend Market (Jatujak Market). A shopping heaven...Uniting everything buyable

From picking up some vintage souvenirs for friends back home

Or are you a fashionista? This is definitely a fashion pool to dive in!

Trendy clothing along the streets....

Thematic booths that you might have no idea what are they selling but to go in and check it out!


If not are not a shopaholic,fret not! You can hunt for drinks and street vendors selling delicious and perhaps exotic local delicacies that may surprise your taste bud. For us, we didn't really keen to shop, thus we would like to explore more on the local food.

Kids catching some sleep while the parents (vendors) are busy trading.

According to the lady, this is octopus fish boe.We reckoned is fish stomach. We go tempted to try it.

Hmmmpp....I still can't figure out where is the octopus.

One of the common street food in Thai that looks like pork balls. Well, it is better known as the Thai Fermented Sausage(Sai Krok Isan)

For what i knew, grilling is by far the best cooking method. I can't agree more with that. Need a kick for the taste bud? Munch together with the fiery cili padi!

A big pot of fragrant curry....

Only spotted chicken feet and lots of fish balls..LOL!

In another stainless steel pot...chunks of pig blood.

Which makes a plate of flavorful noodles.

Choose your own condiments as suggested by the locals. The types of  veges...

Anyone can enlighten me on what is the name of this dish...It's delicious!!

Weather is getting hotter by noon time. You just have to keep looking for some cooling drinks or desserts.

You can never miss the rich and creamy Thai Coconut Ice Cream.

Side condiments included : Peanuts, corn, kidney beans and of course my fav, Thai glutinous rice. Heavenly!

It's a sin not to eat it while you are here!

  6. I love that huge market like crazy. When I was small it was called "Thieves Market" where they sold goods that looked like being stolen or excess from factories. They had a few until it grew too big and relocated to this present one near the Don Muang airport. There is one old popular Thieves market at Nakhon Karem near the Chinatown.

    Your favourite food is called Khanom Jeen which makes me drool any minute. I found similar ones being sold at the Lai Thai Market @ Happy Mansion in Section 17 and Bangkok House in 1 Mont Kiara. Good luck!

  7. the coconut ice cream looks super duper good! I heard most of the foods in Bangkok are more to the sweeter side?

  12. Been here and to many other markets in whole of Thailand. The first few markets can be very exciting. After that, its like seeing the same thing over and over. That said, I just love Thai food for the blend of the 5 tastes.
