Market Madness!
With Christmas fast approaching we put our heads together at HostelBookers to come up with some of the finest places to get your shopping done. Wherever you are in the world, and whatever you’re after, there’s something for everyone at these world famous markets…

Frequented by all sorts - from trendy kids and skate chicks to punks, goths and celebrities - Camden Market is the place to hang out in London each Saturday and Sunday. Actually 6 markets rolled into one you're bound to find exactly what you're after…and love every minute of the experience too!

Djemaa el Fna square is buzzing almost 24 hours each day, and seems to encapsulate all of Morocco in one square. With story tellers, fire eaters and snake charmers mixing with musicians, traders and tourists, the square develops into one of the best food markets in the world come night time.

Running through December until the 23rd, the Christkindlmarkt at the Marienplatz is the ultimate in traditional Christmas markets. With a great atmosphere - and snow if you're lucky - there are stalls selling crafts, cakes, food and some rather potent mulled wines.

Possibly the biggest market in the world, with everything from birds of prey to top-of-the range home furniture. As with everything in Bangkok the atmosphere is hectic as thousands of locals teem around looking for their perfect bargain.

The biggest market in the Andes is held in Otavalo each Saturday. This double-header begins with the renowned animal market, closely followed by the artesian market. And once you're worn with shopping you take a break for lunch to feast on the local delicacy of cuy (spit-roast gineua pig!!)
