Thank you for watching!

With estimates of around 15,000 vending stalls and over 200,000 shoppers each day, the Chatuchak Weekend Market is one of the most popular shopping markets in Bangkok.

You can find just about everything from trendy clothing, to pet dogs and street food.

    Hi Mark! You know how much for a dog?

      Hey Tien, I’m not really sure, sorry! But it really depends on what type of dog you choose.

    A great video, and I love the low prices. That is one thing that Sweden, where I live now does not have. Prices are very high.

      Thanks for watching Kathleen! One bonus about living in SE Asia is the low cost of shopping and living!

    No problem Mark, if you haven’t bought a dog at the markets there is no way for you to know that.
    I had two bad experiences with dogs bought at Chatuchak.
    The cutest little pug that we bought, the poor little thing, she didn’t last 3 weeks.

      Oh, that’s sad, too bad they don’t vaccinate the dogs from Chatuchak…

    Mark I would definitely NOT recommend buying a pet, especially a dog at Chatuchak.
    As far as I know none of them are vaccinated and most are sick.
    I wouldn’t expect a dog from Chatuchak to last more than a month.

      Hey Aaron, ok, cool to know that, thanks for sharing! I don’t think I’d ever purchase a dog from there, but they are fun to look at!
