This section of the market is home to stall holders selling many different carvings, mainly wood and soap. Artists who carve intricate sculptures out of soap make perfect gifts.
Many of them create amazing floral designs that are then encased so they cannot be damaged.
There are also a countless number of really very impressive wood carvings throughout this section. They range from floral prints on wooden boards to carved wooden sculptures of mammals and intricately carved bracelets. Chatuchak Market's carvings are found all around the market and the prices vary from 100 Baht to in excess of 5000 Baht for premium wood carvings.
If not a gift for someone, try and aim to visit this section just to watch and experience these artists and their talents.
