As part of our ongoing Bangkok Week, we trek out of the busy capital to explore the famous Chatuchak Market. Spanning over 27 acres, the weekend bazaar is one of the largest in the world with over 15,000 booths divided into 27 semi-organized sections that sell literally everything imaginable. This is not a place for the claustrophobic. We found ourselves in an endless labyrinth of rare American vintage garb, tasty food, illegal exotic pets and enough bootleg streetwear to set up a mini-mall (see "Supreme" sandals and "Hood By Air" sweats). From old Red Line Levi's to original Charlie Brown Peanuts gear to faded Harley Davidson tees, they had it all - and more. Lucky for us there was a currency exchange booth handy.

Potent smells of simmering fish oil saturate the air as we plotted our day's culinary undertaking. Quail eggs, coconut ice cream, fish ball ramen, jumbo prawns, more coconut ice cream and octopus-on-a-stick was all washed down with fresh coconut water. Seeing a trend? Although we made the rounds in a little over three hours, we highly suggest a full day's attention to see everything Chatuchak has to offer.

Stay tuned for more Bangkok Week features and check out our visit to Siwalai Store.
