So much fun to be had at one of the world's great street markets

If you are looking for a hand-crafted sword then you've come to the right place.

Likewise if you are seeking some cheap T-shirts, western-style leather boots or a plate of paella. 

Or, for that matter, penis-shaped corkscrews. 

The weekend market at Chatuchak Park in Bangkok is one of the world's most famous street markets - and deservedly so. It is also one of the largest.

You'll find everything here from hand-made shoes to banana smoothies; antiques to artworks - all just a short metro ride from downtown Bangkok. 

The vibe is uniquely Thai: the visitors from around the globe. 

Chatuchak is open Friday nights, Saturday and Sunday. It is hot, busy and irresistible. 

I hope you enjoy these pictures of some of the sights and people that populate Chatuchak and make it such fun.
