This market is expanding with many different wares on offer.some local, some from other areas of Thailand and some from other neighbouring Asian countries. There is a plethora of local foods available on the... More

Markets have a strange attraction for most of us; we have an instinctive feeling we'll find fresher, more genuine produce and products or more interesting, "local", different purchases. Which doesn't always prove to be the case. But this market rings all the bells. As already described in other reviews, it has a great atmosphere, food, entertainment and a wonderland of... More

Why not come on a Sunday? This takes up multiple streets and you'll see cute crafts and things for sale. There are street performers as well. In the nooks and crannies off the main drag you'll find squares of food stalls, all ranging from western to thai to chinese cuisine. There are plenty of places to get a massage too.... More

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!!

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
