Chatuchak Market Favorites!

For those traveling to Bangkok for the first time, why not schedule a weekday flight so you can enjoy Chatuchak market on the weekend? Definitely a must see. Here are some faves from this trip :
Thai dishes in miniature. For display and spirit houses.
Endless variety of Thai massagers.
 retro style cafe replete with flowers, candles, a cool rag to wipe your brow from the heat, and a relaxing midday beer or iced coffee amidst the market craze.
    Huge chunks of colored quartz on the sidewalk sold by west African merchant.
