Staggering Shopping Stalls

It was just a few small, humble stalls when this market first started to operate 70 years ago. In the present day, it welcomes literally hundreds of thousands of visitors every weekend. Tourists and locals alike enjoy browsing through the 15,000 stalls that sell everyday items, regional handicrafts, vintage clothes, pets and just about anything you can imagine. The market has changed locations throughout the years until it moved to its present location in Chatuchak in 1982 as part of the city's 200th-anniversary celebrations. The clock tower that currently stands watch over the market was added in 1987 in honor of King Bhulmibol Adulyadej's 60th birthday.
