Chatuchak Market in Bangkok is crowded because it is held only on weekends. Since the market has become a tourist attraction and attracts many visitors, one would think that it should be held on weekdays as well, but this has not been the case. The fact that the market is held only on weekends has not changed since it was held in the square in front of the Royal Palace before it was moved to its current location.

The vast expanse of Chatuchak Market is divided into eight areas. The market is divided into these areas: a clothing area, an interior design area, a pet area, an antiques area, a used book area, a second-hand book area, a second-hand goods area, a gardening area, and a food and beverage area. Each area has a cluster of small stores. The market as a whole has as many as 8,000 stores and is said to be the largest market in Thailand.

The market is so large that it is easy to lose track of where you are when walking through the market. I did not come here to buy anything. I was just walking around looking at the food stalls outside the eating area. The food stall in the photo is one of the food stalls that were mixed in with the clothing stores.

It seemed to be a stall selling fruit sweets, as there were pieces of mangoes and dragon fruits on the store front. Shopping in a large market makes you hungry. Finding the item you are looking for is like searching for treasure without a treasure map, and it doesn't go as smoothly as you would like. To calm your frustration, you must often feel like eating something sweet.
