For those who love shopping for antiques and retro items, Bangkok has plenty of interesting places to offer. Bangkok’s night markets such as Talad Rot Fai Srinakarin offer the opportunity to get many interesting retro and vintage goods while shopping Thai style on weekend evenings. Another good place to do your shopping for antiques in Bangkok is Chatuchak Weekend Market and the area around it.
There’s even a separate sector for antiques at Chatuchak Weekend Market and you can really find interesting things here on weekend. However, if you feel that the antiques at Chatuchak Weekend Market are not enough for you just get out from the market’s area and take a look around.
Get out from Chatuchak Weekend Market to Kamphaeng Phet 2 Road through the main exit where the information booth is located. Turn left and walk to the nearest overpass. Cross the road and you will find yourself between antiques set out directly on the pavement in front of DD Mall.
Here you will find old furniture…
…antique home décor items…
…old TVs, clocks, lamps…
…photos, dishes and other goods…
…or even a tricycle for your kids…
Local artist sets up his works here as well.
For more antiques just turn around the corner of DD Mall and walk a bit as there’s another antiques market located.
More items can be found on the streets in the area around Chatuchak Weekend Market so take your time to walk around – real gem might be just lying somewhere on the pavement.
