English: Located on Phaholyothin road, Chompol subdistrict, Chatuchak district, Chatuchak Market is the Thailand’s largest market, as it offers all kinds of goods from all regions, with over 10,000 shops divided into product categories – clothing and accessories, furniture and home decorations, pets and pets accessories, plants and gardening tools, handicrafts, food and beverage, art and gallery, books, and more.

The market was founded in order to respond to the closure of Sanam Luang market in 1982. A plot of land for construction was donated by the State Railway of Thailand. Initially, the market was called Phaholyothin market, and later changed to “Chatuchak Market” which means a combination of the four regions.

The clock tower is the famous meeting point in Chatuchak Market. It was built, in cooperation with the Market Administration and Thai-Chinese Merchant Association, in 2530 on the occasion of King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 60th Birthday Anniversary,
