For example, the last time we came here, we found a bag big enough to hold all junk items that looked luxurious and elegant. For the quality is so good, and given the quality, a snip at only dollars!

4. Backyard Jewelry
We love the exquisite jewelry that is sold at Backyard Jewelry shop when going to Chatuchak Bangkok Market. They are young, cute and a bit weird. There is Alice’s jewelry collection in the Fairyland region, with lovely Cheshire cat earrings, white rabbits or red roses. Beside hundred of other lovely things, the store also has more modern style products such as chunky rings with pearls on the outside or honeycomb with black and white stripes.
Furthermore, looking at through the Knickerbocker at the front of the shop, you’ll find a collection of backyard T-shirts that are decorated with water-based animal prints or unusual prints. The price is amazing, with 9 dollars and a small T-shirt with 4.5 dollars or more.

How to get there
If you want to go to the market, it is very easy! You simply take the BTS or Skytrain and go to the Mo Chit Station, or choose to take the metro (MRT) and descend at one of the two stations Kamphaeng Phet or Chatuchak Park Station. If you like cool fashion style, we suggest that you should stop at Kamphaeng Phet station.
Although roads and areas are numbered, it is easy for you to identify a number of shops, but there is no exact list of all shops in this market. So, if you really need a more comprehensive and detailed view of the market, looking for a map of Chatuchak Bangkok before leaving can help you more.
At least, you can know where there is something. However, straying between shops is also an indispensable part of the “JJ Market” (another name for Bangkok’s Chatuchak Market) that you should try once.
