Asia | South East Asia | Thailand | Bangkok – Weekend Market
The weekend market is every weekend (hence the name of it ) and its definitely not like the night market in Chiang Mai or Kao Shan Road and worth to be seen. You get everything at the weekend market, food, cloths, gems even furnitures and its really crowded. Most of the people going there are Thai, because its much still cheap then the rest of Bangkok. It takes about an hour by the bus to get there and if you are in Bangkok on a Saturday or a Sunday, dont miss it!
We also went to the Bayoketower, which is the highest building in the city, but that was a disappointment. You have to pay 120 Baht to for the elevator to the observation deck and inside the tower there are shops selling stuff just like on Khaosan Road. We accidentally took a wrong elevator and ended up the 12th floor. Just to find out that there is nothing between the 12th and the 9th floor, just empty unfinished rooms. The Bayoketower probably also was a victim of the financial crisis in South-East Asia. You see a lot of unfinished buildings in Bangkok, waiting for a buyer, or to collapse
