  • Super cheap! If you are looking for bargains come here. I love how easy it is to access the market, right off the BTS. Stay hydrated! There are plenty of vendors selling bottled water for 10 baht. You can spend your whole weekend here and still need more time to look at everything. There are also vendors selling food. This is not a good place for strollers because the lanes are very narrow. Be cautious with young kids who like to wonder. It is very easy as an adult to get lost!
  • This market is super fun. My wife and I had a great time and could have easily spent all day here. It's huge, labyrinthine, and has almost anything you could possibly want to buy somewhere inside. It's right by the Mo Chit BTS station, so it's easy to get to by public transit. One of the fun things about the market is the food and drink stalls sprinkled liberally throughout. Get a chilled water for 10 baht to stay hydrated, maybe an iced tea or a cold beer, grab some pad thai, fresh fruit or fried meat, whatever you need to get back out there and in the stalls again. Before you dive in, though, do yourself a favor and get a copy of the map, especially if you're looking for something in particular. The market is organized (though it may not seem readily apparent at first) and it'll save you a lot of directionless meandering if you know where you're going.
  • This place is still a giant maze after so long but it's a good maze. There is a section selling arts stuff as well as many other sections selling fashion apparels. The food section feature some interesting food like the Squid Egg and Fried Quail Egg and the fried chicken wings smelt so damn enticing! There are also many stalls selling the coconut Ice Cream that comes served in half a coconut husk and two different toppings of your choice. The place is still very hot during the day without rain but some parts of the stall can feel the air-conditioning draft coming from the many massage stalls around.
  • Amazing market and a definite don't miss in Bangkok. Allow a whole day and you still won't see it all. Sundays are best and plenty to eat drink and explore. Be sure to check the pet area. Extremely hot on a humid day so stay hydrated. The nearby central plaza shopping centre is a locals favourite and worth a visit but probably on a different day. Station right on the doorstep.
  • It was actually kind of fun being in this giant maze of a market. If you're claustrophobic it might not be so fun as most of the stalls are tightly packed and have roof tops. Some stalls are air conditioned and with the cover its actually not too bad on a warm day. But I strongly recommend that you go early. I arrived at 8am and only about 25% of the stalls were opened while many of the others started to open. But the lack of crowds was quite nice. By 11am the stalls closest to the BTS station was a mad house. If you get there at that time, make a bee line for the other side where its still sparse. Shops are mostly junk stuff. You may find something worthwhile like cheap sexy underwear CK knockoffs but still with good material so worth the 2 bucks. I imagine by the afternoon, walking through those stalls would be a nightmare. If you see something you like buy it because there is a good chance you'll never find that shop again.
