Arts, crafts and local food delights on offer. Add a variety of street performers and some good bargains to take back to the hotel. Only on Sunday nights. Great welcome to Chiang Mai on our first night here.

Honestly, this is the best market I've ever experienced. Everything is on offer, food, drinks, jewellery, leather, clothes, artwork etc... I think what made it so good is obviously the price, but the fact that many items were locally made. This area can get very busy, but what do you expect at a wonderful place like this!!

We heard about the local street market in old town chiang Mai from our taxi driver transferring us to our accommodation. We thought excellent, nice local market, we'll grab some food and have a wander. The market is huuuuge! Some grey things on offer, both food, crafts and souvenirs alike As per all other markets in the world they get... More

Lots of things to buy and eat here, from souvenirs like pouches, bags, clothes, postcards etc. to all kinds of local delicacies here. You can feel the local atmosphere here. When we went in August 2014, there were people performing street arts, playing violin and singing. It is a must-go place in Chiang Mai!

We spend two Sundays there from 5 pm to 10 pm. Lots of locals selling their wares at cheaper lower everyday prices. I suggest you go to the different temples for dinner. Great prices and good food. I highly recommend it! I would suggest after a long day of walking around, go get a foot massage, the shoulder massage is... More

A great market to fill you bags with gifts and souvenirs. There are lots of food stalls and restaurants too so you won't go hungry. Enjoy!

Easier to walk than the Saturday market and easier to "see" the artisans and handicrafts. The street is wider despite there being vendors on both sides. Behind the street vendors there are often shops you can walk into, restaurants to stop at. There were at least three reflexology areas along the way where weary shoppers could stop for well needed...

We started our walk at about 8 and still running out of time since the size is larger than I expected. Many souvenirs can be bought here and please enjoy your price bargain with hawkers. The souvenirs are generally cheaper than those shops in other tourist attractions. Unlike Taiwan, the night market in Thailand focus more on souvenirs rather than... More

One reviewer claimed it had better weather, but this cannot be the best way to compare any market. We do markets the world over and this was really good. More variety than most interspersed with stores. All at prices to be negotiated and handy Tuk tuks to take you back to your hotel
