Things You Cannot Buy at Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok

/ January 27, 2016/ Asia, Thailand/ 0 comments

This is going to be a very short entry, because it might be really hard to find something you cannot buy at this enormous market in Bangkok. Chatuchak weekend market is open, as its name indicates, only at weekends and provides both locals and tourists with every product category they can think of. Thus, if I were to give you examples of goods that cannot be purchased there, I’d have to leave the space empty:)

Chatuchak market is an insane and chaotic combination of wholesale store, open market, mall and food court at the same time. Next to clothing, shoes and accessories, you can get yourself new furniture, Thai souvenirs or a cute puppy. Everything is of course in Thai prices, which means it’s super cheap. I will not ennumerate all the weird things that are sold on the market, but here are a few shots that speak for themselves.

The most entertaining, but on the other hand a very depressing department of the whole market is a part with animals. It is so cool to pet little cute puppies, as you know they will find home in a matter of a few days. However, watching small squirrels or birds locked in tiny cages in no fun at all. These animals don’t look happy and satisfied with their situation.
