To echo a lot of the other reviews about the Sunday Night Market, there's a lot to see, eat and buy, but there are also a ton of people. Some reviewers suggest going early (before 8 or 9 pm), but we went around 7 and it was already swarming with people. When we left a few hours later, it was... More

Absolutely loved this market. Extremely crowded though so for those who are claustrophobic forget it or go early. Food is great, cheap prices. Great atmosphere and thousands of little stalls. Some of the little and quieter streets offered traditional thai items which was very interesting and cultural. It is gigantic though, main streets are long and walking at slow pace... More

There's a lot to see here as it's big, but it's sort of same same. Everyone is out walking and at some points you just can't move for the crowd. Perhaps the trick is to come really early or really late?

We didn't see all of this market but what we saw was unbelievable. How all of this can be set up and pulled down is incredible.......a logistical nightmare but they do it. The goods for sale here are mostly the same as the Saturday Night Market with a few exceptions. Great for purchasing home crafted products only available in Chiang... More

This is probably the best and largest market in Chiang Mai. It is spread over several streets in the Ratchamankha/Prapokkloa Roads area (around Way Chedi Luang) in The Old City. This market is heavily tourist-orientated selling the usual range off pseudo-ethnic clothing, local tee shirts, cheap jewellery, souvenirs of various kinds and so on. It does not offer everyday items.... More

This night market has so much to see,buy & eat! It does get very very busy be warned. But of you have some patience and some time its absolutely worth taking a walk down. Many of the things are handmade by local artisans. Great food also and super cheap!

I don't like markets and people, the Night market has a lot of that. But it stands out as one of the best local markets I've been to. The wares are of top quality and almost all of it is locally produced. If you looking for fake stuff this is not the market for you. But beware if you not... More

You must go to this market early before the crowds. We went at 4.30 p m and about 90% of the stalls were already open. There is a great variety of goods, mainly handcrafts and clothing and numerous food stalls. Prices are very reasonable and relatively fixed. There is no "hard selling" and we found the stall holders very friendly... More
