Chatuchak Weekend Market

This sprawling market is a shopaholic's paradise. With over 8,000 stalls, you'll find everything from vintage clothing and designer knock-offs to unique, handmade pieces. Don't forget to haggle – it's part of the fun and a great way to secure even better deals. Open on weekends, Chatuchak Market is a must-visit for budget-conscious shoppers. 

P.S. Recommended from locals, the best time to visit there is in the evening as that's when the Street Close shops will set up their stalls. The prices are more than half the price of the shops in the alley!

The Red Building in Chatuchak

Are you a collector or do you love stylish second-hand clothing? This place is a treasure trove of vintage attire, souvenirs, furniture, watches, decorations, handcrafted items, and much more – the list goes on. It's tucked away behind the Chatuchak Market I mentioned earlier. Artists and tourists from various countries, all with a passion for vintage fashion, flock here in search of affordable and valuable items. It's another must-visit spot you shouldn't overlook.

Pratunam Market

Located in the heart of Bangkok's fashion district, Pratunam Market is famous for its wholesale clothing. Whether you're in search of stylish dresses, accessories, or the latest trends, this market has it all. Prices are typically lower when you buy in bulk, so consider shopping with friends to take advantage of wholesale discounts. 

P.S. Pratunam Market also sells in the form of a night market. This section of the market is popular with local shoppers because prices are cheaper, with some shops starting at just 10 baht ($0.28 USD). So if you love shopping for unique outfits you can wear every day, without over your budget for shopping. Here is another place that meets your needs. However, this market will start selling at 05.00-09.00 (Quite early in the morning, right? But if you want to shop at the cheapest price, give it a try.)

  • Opening hours: Every day 08.00 - 15.00 
  • How to get there : Chit Lom BTS Station (Sukhumvit Line) - Take Exit 3 and walk straight for approximately 250 meters until you reach Ratchaprasong Intersection. Cross the pedestrian bridge to the opposite side and continue walking for about 450 meters until you reach Petchaburi Road.

Platinum Fashion Mall

Right next to Pratunam Market, you've got Platinum Fashion Mall, where you can shop in air-conditioned comfort. This mall is all about clothes, shoes, and accessories at wholesale prices. It's kinda like Pratunam, where stores prefer to sell things in bundles. If you're on vacation with friends or family, you can team up and grab stuff at super-low prices. And, oh, don't skip the food court on the sixth floor for a quick energy boost!

  • Opening hours: Every day 09.00 - 20.00
  • How to get there : BTS Chidlom Station Exit 6, go through skywalk then you'll see the Platinum Fashion Mall entrance

Union Mall

Another flea market with air conditioning, this is a fashion shopping center that brings together all the latest trends. They have women's and men's clothing, accessories, bags, shoes, and more, all at more affordable prices compared to others in the same market category. So, if you're searching for a spot to buy inexpensive yet stylish clothes and enjoy a comfortable shopping experience, this is the place you've been looking for!

  • Opening hours: Every day 11.00 - 22.00

Ramindra Flea Market

It might take you out of the city center a bit. But, we guarantee that you will definitely be impressed because there are many fashionable clothes with the affordable price that are trendy, fashionable, or even second hand as well. The market is quite large, so don't worry if you get tired of shopping. There are also restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, pet zones, handcrafts, and more for you to enjoy.

Remember to wear comfortable clothing and shoes as you explore these markets, as you're likely to spend hours browsing the stalls and finding hidden treasures. Additionally, be prepared to negotiate prices, as bargaining is a common practice in many of these markets. With some patience and a keen eye, you can leave Bangkok with a suitcase full of stylish clothes without emptying your wallet. Happy shopping trips!
