    As mentioned, our service apartment is located within a minute walk to Chong Nonsi BTS sky train station. There are many eateries around the train station and there’s always a line of cabbies waiting by the road side.
    We had some light breakfast at Mcdonald’s – Samurai Pork Burger, Corn Pie (OMG so good) and Pineapple Pie before heading out. We took a cab there as we realise that it is always cheaper to take a cab as there are 5 of us in the family.
    Since it is a shopping trip for the women in our family, how could we miss out Chatuchak Weekend Market?  The scale of it is pretty unbelievable – it covers an area of 35 acres, contains more than 15 000 shops and stalls, has over 200 000 visitors each day.

    Chatuchak Weekend Market has been segregated into areas depending on the types of goods sold, and there are maps available for the market which detail the various sections.
    The range of products on sale is extensive, and includes household accessories, handicrafts, religious artifacts, art, antiques, live animals, clothing and jewelry.

    It is a famous market but we didn’t really enjoy ourselves – too hot, too stuffy. Things got worst as we walked through the narrow aisle filled with throngs of tourists.

    This is how you try on the products at Chatuchak Weekend Market – sarong make shift dressing room.
    My favourite area has to be the household furnishings and accessories segment. Quality goods are being sold at a reasonable pricing but I wish to have more luggage space!

    Beat the blistering heat with coconut ice cream, served on a coconut husk , complete with coconut flesh and a cup of coconut juice! It’s like a must try sweet treat in Chatuchak Weekend Market.
