"Free ride to Chatuchak (JJ)" Chatuchak Weekend Market Tip by travelpug

Chatuchak Weekend Market, Bangkok: 110 reviews and 162 photos

We stayed at a small hotel near Petchaburi Road. We hopped on a tuk tuk and the driver would bring us there with half the price if we agreed to take a walk at a jewerly shop (he would get commission by bringing tourists there). Since we were not in the rush, we agreed. We spent 15 minutes in the jewerly shop and hopped back on to our tuktuk. Then he said to bring us to another shop, then he would bring us to JJ for FREE. To save a few bahts, we made a deal with him (though we were a bit aggitated by then). So he brought us to another tourists trap, a tailor/ souvenir shop. We walked for 5 minutes in the shop and got back to our tuktuk. After 30 minutes since we left our hotel, we finally arrived at JJ Market happily for FREE!!

So if you have time to spare, and want to save a few bahts, you can do as we did. Have fun at JJ!!

Address: Mo Chit Station, Bangkok
Directions: Simply take the Skytrain to the end terminal called Morchit which is exactly where the market is located.
