Silks, sneakers, fighting fish and fluffy puppies – if it can be sold in Thailand, you’ll find it at one of Bangkok’s many markets. In a city obsessed with commerce, Chatuchak Market takes the prize as the biggest and baddest. But many of Bangkok’s smaller markets offer their own charms, mainly through specialization. Think retro-themed open-air market coveted by local hipsters; late-night wholesale flower market offering endless rows of roses and button carnations; and the arcane amulet market, with its splendid arrays of talismans. Forget the malls – Bangkok’s markets are the best way to satiate the most seasoned shopper’s appetite for objects new and old. Chatuchak and Bang Nam Pheung Markets, in particular, are top-notch options for post-purchase snacking.
