Chatuchak Weekend Market on Friday Night

By Wilbur Suen

This is another burning question from readers. Is Chatuchak Weekend Market open on Friday nights? For many years, there hasn’t been a very definite answer. Last year I went around 7pm but found not much stalls open.

This time round, I went back again at 10pm and decided to film it down to give you some live updates.

Stalls are only open on the sides of Chatuchak Weekend Market, along the roads.

Stalls on the “sois” or alley are closed and 99% of them are not open.

On the streets, you can still find fashionable clothings.

Sweet corn for you? Saw many carts selling this sweet corn!

Coconut Ice Cream. This is not the original one which draws huge crowds on the weekends. The original ones are not opened on Friday night.

Fish cakes

The famous Chicken Noodle Soup is open!

My new found love in Chatuchak Weekend Market (Friday night). Strawberry Yougurt Ice which is so cooling but at the same time sweet. It’s a little too sweet though.

If you really can’t make it for Chatuchak Weekend Market on Saturday or Sunday, you may proceed to visit the Friday night market, even though the experience will be different.

A good plan is to visit JJ Green first before proceeding over to Chatuchak Weekend Market!

Hi, can I know if the chatuchak opens on FRIDAY (the whole day)?
Because my flight home will be on saturday 2pm, thus no time to go on weekends 🙁
Nonetheless, please advise on how to go from Pratunam to Chatuchak and the rightful fare.

THANKS!!!!!!!!!!

chatuchak only opens late at night. the fare should be about 150 to 200 baht depending on traffic.

Hello there, I was just wondering if its really worthy to visit Chatuchak? Because airline tickets will be extra 100USD pricey if I were to book through the weekend and it’d be cheaper for me if I were to stay throughout the weekdays. So I’m wondering if its really worthy or standout to visit Chatuchak rather than the ordinary night market? The concerns are foods, drinks and clothings 🙂
