The Chatuchak Market, in Bangkok, has more than 8,000 sales stalls.At a weekend it usually has more than 100,000 visitors. In this market there is everything for sale, although not always at the best prices, yet it is well worth visiting.
This market is a world in which you will only make good deals if you are well prepared to bargain over prices. This is because, having become a tourist attraction, it has seen its average prices inflated, comparing with prices of the same products in other places, not so popular.
If you are planning to pass by through Chiang Mai, you should save a good part of the budget for gifts and souvenirs, because in the capital of Northern Thailand you will find much better deals.
