Tips On How To Navigate The Market:

Each entrance is large and has a detailed map, we recommend that you take a picture of it before entering the labyrinth. Despite the sheer volume of content, everything here is organized well, with goods partitioned into zones. Since time will not allow you to observe everything, you will want to focus on the most important things. There are vendors of water, ATMS, and food that is located near the water’s source, so you will only need to bring small finances, sunscreen, comfortable clothing, and the ability to negotiate. At the conclusion of the day, enjoy a remarkable mojito paired with a fresh batch of mint and a sugarcane stick at Viva 8, a peculiar little venue that hosts house music during the evening.

Purchasing Items & Food Stalls:

If shopping isn’t your passion, be sure to explore the endless food vendors in the entire market. Chatuchak’s Weekend Market has a variety of desserts to choose from. Some of these desserts have included chocolate-fleshed bananas, crepes and brownies. The market is also associated with its numerous coconut ice cream stands, these are served in their own coconut. You can also incorporate multiple toppings, including nuts or fresh fruit syrup. If you do not enjoy ice cream, but like coconuts, be sure to locate the man with the machete that is selling them. He’s located near the primary entrance. If you can’t see him, just focus on his booming voice and listen for the words, “coconuts!”
