In fact, the market was named after the park! That’s why we don’t want you to miss this important part of your JJ weekend. The more than 300,000 square meters park is one of the most famous relaxing places for Bangkokians where they can escape from Bangkok concrete jungle and feel late afternoon breeze what is not easy to find in the city. So if you love people watching, reading, meditating, picnicking, running, even aerobic dancing, this is the place to go.
Things to know before you trip to Chatuchak Park:
- The Clock Tower, the park symbol, is located right by Mo Chit BTS Station exit number 3
