Bangkok is one of the world's shopping hot-spots. With high-end fashion malls clustered conveniently at various high-traffic spots, it's no wonder they call this place "retail therapy".
And then there's the other end of the spectrum: Chatuchak Weekend Market. This giant, sprawling, and jam-packed outdoor mall is equal parts swap meet and bazaar, with it's own energy, pace, and ecosystem.
If nothing, it's a great way to send three hours and lose yourself fora while. I'll probably be there again this weekend!
