Very busy night market of impressive proportions. The market stretches out over several streets in the old town. Different areas have their own specialty, like food, clothes, paintings etc. Lots of good and (very) cheap food available everywhere (e.g. Pad Thai for 20 B). Also nice about the market is that there are many temples in the area that are... More

There are so many stalls. To see it all would take around 5 hours. Heaps of food snacks to enjoy sweet and savoury ranging from Sushi to icecream. take a plastic bag for your wrappers etc has bins are scarce although most stall holders will oblige. The stalls can become repetitive but there is loads of unique stuff hidden amongst... More

A friend from Chiang Mai recommended this. We planned our trip to visit this bazaar upon our arrival. Well, we are happy that we did that. Hm... this is the "walking street", I suggest that you get the hotel staff to write it in Thai, to show the driver, if you are taking a taxi. We arrived. But, my sis... More

This market is unbelievably huge, it's a 1km strip and has a few crossings leading off with more markets, such a fun experience as there is so much to take in and see, enjoy lots of food - all savory thai dishes, seafood, sushi, little egg & cheese bakes in banana leaves toward the end of the market to all...

First, forget the Saturday Market - this is the one for locals and tourists alike and not to be missed. I doubt there is anything you couldn't find here and for pure entertainment value, there's nothing like it. There are singers, hawkers, craftspeople, fishmongers, shoemakers- you name it's here. It goes on and on and on and it's strictly walking,... More

Very very busy but that adds to the atmosphere, it is a brilliant place to visit, starts around 5 and people seem to start packing up around 8.30ish. The market goes on for 1km so be prepared to walk! Dont have anything to eat before hand as you will be spoilt for choice, off to the side of the market... More

If you like incredibly crowded places where you can move at 2 meters per minute speed, this is the place for you! If you enjoy knicknacks, embroidered bedspreads, tie-dye tshirts, yoga pants and "folk" jewellery - all at inflated prices - this place is for you too! If this is not enough to get you interested, all stalls are really... More

We stayed in the Estia hotel which is just on a side road off from this market so perfect location. There are so many stalls with handmade/unique goods that you don't find in the other markets. As other reviews have said definitely go early, we went at 4:30 and it was nice, quiet and was easy to see the stalls... More

Well this is not a market for the faint hearted. Miles and miles of main street packed with stalls on at least both sides,plus many side streets which are pretty long too. We spent 4 1/2 hours looking hard and it was splendid! Every type of food you have never even thought of, every type of clothing, toy, jewellery and... More
