About Chatuchak Park
Located in Bangkok, Chatuchak Park is one of the oldest public parks in the city, having been built in 1975 and opened in 1980.
There is a peaceful man-made lake in Chatuchak Park, the turquoise water of which is like a mirror, reflecting the surrounding flowers and trees in the water. A few small boats occasionally float in the quiet lake, and the people on the boats happily gossip and laugh, and the laughter echoes, making others feel the cheerful mood as well. The small bridge across the lake is like a curved yellow crescent, extremely dazzling in the green, like a little yellow in the middle of all the green, elegant and beautiful, just the right blend.
During the week, the park is like a quiet girl, quietly enjoying herself. On weekends, the park turns into a big marketplace with a lot of activity. The park is known as “Asia’s Largest Jumping Market” with over 15,000 stores selling a wide variety of goods.
