Next day was a Saturday which meant it was the day to explore the famous weekend market- Chatuchak! This is one market that everyone looks forward to every weekend whether it's a tourist or a local person from Thailand. We woke up on time and after our quick shower, heartful breakfast at Orchid Café located at the lobby level of Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, we took the sky train to Chatuchak.
The market is open from 9 AM to 6 PM on Saturdays and Sundays, however, I think by the time we reached there, it was already noon. The place had some great local stuff that too at great prices. Don't forget to negotiate with your best smile and the friendly shopkeepers around are happy to reduce the prices! We bought some interesting stuff - boots, cute slippers, T-shirts, skirt, tracks, accessories etc. It is actually a heaven for a true shopaholic like me! One thing that I saw for the first time ever and was fascinated to try were the miniature ice cream cones filled with different flavours of ice-cream! Each cone was bite size and full of fruity flavours! We also tried chicken wings and coconut water at the market! By the time the clock struck 6, we realized that we were tired! The excitement of non-stop shopping doesn't make you feel the tiredness before! Our day ended with the famous Thai foot massage near Chatuchak and then we were ready to go back to our hotel to have dinner and crash! We had a lot of stuff in our hand, obviously from the shopping there so Sky Train was not an option. We tried the Grab Taxi, which we booked through the app. Don't forget to download these apps before you reach Thailand!
