Chatuchak Weekend Market

The Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok Thailand is the world's biggest weekend market. It is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 8AM to 6PM. You can find fake name brand clothing, fake name brand watches, purses, perfume, shoes, cheap food and music here. To be honest, I've been to many asian markets like this so it wasn't really special to me by the time I got to Bangkok. The knock offs sold here are sold in many other asian countries and cheap food can be readily found in other countries as well. However many first time travelers make their first destination Bangkok and as such you'll find this market to be the largest and best of all the ones in Bangkok.
