CHATUCHAK WEEKEND MARKET IN CRISIS

Chatuchak Weekend Market, Bangkok’s biggest market and a popular tourist destination, has been decimated by the new wave of Covid-19.

With the lack of foreign tourists due to travel restrictions over the past year, as well as more locals staying at home despite the market’s strict disease control measures, the number of visitors at the market has dropped by 90%.

Vendors at the market say this is the worst situation in 50 years. Most of them report no sales at all. With little to no income, many shops at the market have shut down.

Although the BMA is trying to relieve the situation by lowering the rental fees by half, that seems not enough to help the business. Some of the vendors have tried online trading, but sales are still low.
