Thai Markets

In Thailand, you cannot resist the temptation to do a lot of shopping. Crafts, clothing, silks, local products, curiosity, pirate objects and live animals but, above all, you can find a lot of tropical fruit and good local food in typical Thai markets. You cannot miss the opportunity to visit at least one of these local markets and to be involved in the typical atmosphere of these places. Huge weekly markets, entire streets dedicated to daily shopping attract thousands of local and foreign visitors in Bangkok and in every city of Thailand. Among the most popular markets in Bangkok, there is the Chatuchak Weekend Market, also known as JJ Market that is the largest market in Thailand and one of the world's largest weekend markets. This Market covers an area of 70 Rai that is over 35 hectares, divided into 27 Sections and contains more than 15,000 stalls selling goods from every part of Thailand. We can estimate that each day, on average weekend, over than 200,000 visitors come here to browse around the merchandise on offer, 30% of them are tourists. The culture of open-air market is rooted in the Thai people, where there is a market there is food to eat. Enjoying street food in the markets is almost a national sport for Thais. In the capital and in all provincial cities, Thais love to eat out because it is funny, cheap and a good opportunity for socializing. The small stalls placed inside the markets sell all kinds of street food, including skewers of shrimp or squid cooked on small barbecues, shellfish and grilled fish, beef and pork snacks on sticks, other sellers offer noodle soups, Pad Thai, and Som Tam, the famous Thai spicy salad. You can enjoy food walking through the stalls or sitting on low chairs and small plastic tables placed in dedicated areas. More
