5. Local Weekend Markets: Khlong Lat Mayom & Chatuchak Tour
After pick-up from your hotel at 8:00 AM, you will be driven to Khlong Lat Mayom floating market. This small market is a great place to stroll around and sample delicious Thai street food dishes. Although not many vendors sell things from their boats, the fantastic market on land right next to the water makes up for it. This charming market will give you a taste of local life, as nearly no tourists come here. You will leave Khlong Lat Mayom at about 11.00 AM to visit Or Tor Kor market, known for its premium fresh fruit, vegetables and food. The Or Tor Kor market is packed with perfect produce, and is full of exotic fruits and vegetables that are unique to Thailand, as well as imported specialties from around Asia. Customers also shop here for seafood, sweets and cooked foods. The market offers a wide selection of prepared curry pastes and spices for you to take back home, and there is a food court filled with Thai specialties. The last stop will be at Chatuchak Weekend Market. With more than 15,000 retailers in 27 sections, this market is the largest weekend market in the world. Enjoy the fun of bargaining as you browse the incredible variety of merchandise on offer, from the latest fashion items and vintage decor, to Thai crafts and wooden tables. Although the market officially opens at 7:00 AM, shoppers usually go in the afternoon when the weather is cooler. After finishing your shopping, you will be driven back to your hotel at around 4:00 PM.
