Toh-Plue, Chatuchak, Bangkok

On our way back to Bangkok (Don Mueang Airport) from Yangon. 
Flying with Thailand's cool domestic carrier Nok Air. 


Sawasdee ka! Reuniting with Bangkok after 14 years and I was so excited to be back! The day we arrived, I had set aside the whole afternoon to visit our favourite place for shopping, Chatuchak. I cannot count the number of times I've been here and it brought back so much memories. I'm already missing this place again as I'm typing this. 

For those of you unfamiliar with JJ, as locals would call it, Chatuchak Weekend Market has 15,000 stalls selling almost anything from clothes, silk, souvenirs, handicrafts, furniture, home decors, ceramic ware, wood carvings, plants, pets, etc. It is the largest market in Thailand by far and one of the largest weekend markets in the world. 
  It is certainly a place one must visit when in Bangkok. 


 
 Look how huge these prawns are!

We were also back at Toh Plue, the only restaurant with A/C in this huge market. Trust me, you would want air conditioning when visiting Chatuchak Market. The thing is, this restaurant can be a bit hard to find especially if you are not familiar with the area so I have included a map of the market below. The restaurant is located in Section 27 which is in the north west of the clock tower. 
We love the food. The dishes were all very tasty and delicious but it's not something I would make a special trip to because it's located quite far from downtown Bangkok. On the other hand, if you plan to visit Chatuchak Market then this is by far the best place to have a meal around the area.
