Siam Square Outdoor Market

I'm back after a short hiatus. I've been soo busy. It's not like I was watching 6 consecutive seasons of The Sopranos... I swear! Anyway, when I do drag myself off the couch one of my favorite shopping destinations is still Siam Square.

Along the sidewalk of Rama I road, front of Siam Square every evening an outdoor market is set up. It spans from Siam skytrain station towards the True Move store and all the way until the 7/11 after Lido. (See map of Siam)

There's definitely some cheap treasures here if you take the time to browse. Warning: one of my main gripes - sizes are teeny tiny for the most part. Also be warned, when the market is open, the sidewalk gets pretty crowded.

Some of the clothes come from shops within Siam Square, and others are sellers that come for the outdoor market only.

Open hours: sellers start setting up around 5pm - closing up around 11pm
Look for: accessories, cheap shoes, second hand shirts and dresses, new stuff imported from Korea & China, cheap knockoffs, jewelry, trendy sunglasses, bags, denim.
