Chatuchak (Thai: จตุจักร; IPA: [tɕà.tùʔ.tɕàk]) is one of the 50 districts (khet) of Bangkok, Thailand. The district is bounded by seven other districts (from north clockwise): Lak Si, Bang Khen, Lat Phrao, Huai Khwang, Din Daeng, Phaya Thai, and Bang Sue.
Chatuchak was originally part of Bang Khen District. It became a separate district in 1989. The name of the district came from its two major landmarks, Chatuchak Park and Chatuchak Weekend Market.
The most well-known site in the district is the Chatuchak Weekend Market, the largest market in Thailand. Northwest of the weekend market is another market, Chatuchak Plaza selling clothes and many other products. Across the Kamphang Phet Road is Or Tor Kor Market (ตลาด อ.ต.ก.) belonging to The Marketing Organization for Farmers (องค์การตลาดเพื่อการเกษตร), offering fresh agriculture product and food. Just north of the market along Kamphang Phet Road is the area selling plants and garden products.
Other markets in the area include:
Ratchayothin night market, a night market next to Major Cineplex Ratchayothin.
Ratchadaphisek night market, a large night market at Ratchada/Ladprao intersection.
