Bangkok is a fantastic place for shopping; especially for those who love to wear, make, and buy jewelry! I spend a lot of time wandering the markets. My favorite is Chattuchuk Market; aka the Weekend Market; JJ Market. - 8000 stalls of everything imaginable to buy - from pets, fish, art work, handicrafts, school uniforms, jeans, food, etc! There are many wholesale bead and silver shops. Everytime I go - new ones seem to crop up. I do have my favorites but love to explore to discover new ones. You never know what you 'll find!
